Dana Altman Oregon Basketball – MBCA 2016 Clinic
The Dana Altman Oregon Basketball – MBCA 2016 Clinic Notes were compiled by Matt Woodcock. Coach Woodcock is a Graduate Assistant at Baker University in Kansas. Huge thanks to him again.
Dana Altman is entering his 27th season as a college basketball head coach and his 7th as the coach of the Oregon Ducks. He has won the Coach of the Year awards in four different conferences.
His 327 wins at Creighton are the most ever at that school. Coach Altman has led his Oregon team to 154 wins in 6 seasons.
Oregon is getting a Porsche for the price of a Prius these day, but that can’ expect that discount forever. His Duck Teams have made it to the NCAA Tournament four straight years, including an Elite Eight appearance in 2016, and has a 71 percent win percentage. He has the 24th-highest salary in NCAA basketball, and third highest in the Pac-12.
Oregon’s recruiting success in basketball can be traced to Altman and winning. Payton Pritchard is one of the best guards to graduate from an Oregon High School. Coach Altman was able to keep him in state, prying him away from powerhouses Kansas and Louisville, among others. This is something that Ernie Kent never did. He couldn’t keep the elite home-state recruits to come play for the Ducks.
Coach Altman recruits you for your versatility and not just one skill set. He looks for people who can play a lot of positions. Coach Altman’s teams play aggressive basketball, even when they have a bigger lineup on the court, they still push the ball. His players play with confidence and freedom to attack all the time.
