The Eran Ganot Hawaii Rainbows were thinking upset when they played Cal in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. Eran Ganot was more than confident going into the NCAA Tournament, but no one thought that they would pull off a 77-66 victory over Cal and lead them into their first berth in more than a decade. He was determined to make sure that this opportunity isn’t just a “happy to be here” moment.

After all, Eran Ganot has turned this team around. He was the third head coach in two years, and Ganot recorded their best year on the court since the 2001-2002 season with 25 wins. It was the most wins for a rookie head coach in Big West history. Ganot is here to win and his players are on board. Here is more about the coach that you never heard about.

Ganot has called Hawaii his “dream job”, but the job came with an asterisk when he was hired in April 2015. He signed a three year contract with the Rainbow Warriors and went to work. It’s not Ganot’s first rodeo at Hawaii. He was an assistant coach with the program from 2007 to 2010. He also served as the team’s Director of Basketball Operations for one year from 2006 to 2007.

In addition to his time with the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors, Ganot worked as an assistant coach with St. Marys Gaels. He spent eight seasons, overall, with the Gaels, most recently from 2010 to 2015. Ganot did everything from coordinating film exchange, video breakdown, working one on one with the players during practice, and anything else that they needed.

Ganot’s strength has always been working with guards to help them improve their backcourt play. He worked

Throughout the course of his coaching career, Ganot has focused much of his efforts on helping to improve his team’s backcourt play. He worked one-on-one with the Gaels’ guards and helped build an offense that ranked in the top 10 in points per possession and top 15 in rebound margin. He helped hone the skills of now-Cleveland Cavaliers guard Matthew Dellavedova, who went on to become SMC’s all-time leader in scoring, assists, games played, free throw percentage and three-point shots; was named first team all-WCC three times; and was the 2012 WCC Player of the Year.

It was only a matter of time before Hawaii’s guard play improved. It worked too! This year alone, the Rainbow Warriors have jumped from 72.9 points and 13.4 assists per game to 77.5 points and 15.8 assists. Roderick Bobbitt also became the program’s all-time steals leader.
