Kip Ioane, Special Situations We Aren’t Prepping For Guest: Kip Ioane, Willamette Basketball Head Coach   In this week’s coaching conversation, Willamette head coach Kip Ioane joins the Basketball Podcast to discuss special situations we aren't prepping for. His "Teams of Men" program that the Willamette men's basketball team has put into action in recent years is designed to develop character among Bearcat basketball players and is discussed at length on the podcast.   Kip Ioane (pronounced "eye-own") is in his 11th season as the head coach of the men’s basketball team at Willamette University in 2019-20. He is in his 19th season on the coaching staff, including eight years as an assistant coach under Gordie James prior to being named the head coach when James retired prior to the 2009-10 season.   Off the court, Ioane’s basketball program sets out to develop men of character, create a family and build a legacy — in that order. He recruits players with that promise, which is why no one protested when the coach added the educational component in 2013.   Breakdown 1:00 - Willamette Basketball Program 5:00 - The Truth Exist Between Us 8:00 - Three Pillars to his Program 10:00 - Impressions of their Practical Week For Them 12:00 - Mentor 13:30 - Strategies to Help his Players become Comfortable 15:30 - Quantifying the Impact of their Stories 18:00 - By Product 20:00 - Handling Conflicts with his Players 25:00 - Selling Ideas to the Administration 26:30 - Character Development Focus 28:00 - Educating Sexual Assaults on Campus 30:00 - Educating his Players about Alcohol 33:00 - Phrasing and the Importance of Language for Coaches 38:00 - Team Within Team 40:30 - Irresponsible Social Media Usage 42:00 - Not Following their Players on Social media  44:30 - Adopting his Ideas 47:00 - Comments about his critics 48:30 - Conclusion   Kip Ioane’s Bio Bio: Twitter: Cross The Stream Podcast:    Basketball Immersion Website: Twitter: YouTube: Facebook: See Privacy Policy at and California Privacy Notice at
