Oftentimes when college basketball players step off the court, they stop competing against each other and return to talking as friends. Sometimes they’ll discuss each other’s relative strengths and weaknesses in hopes of bettering themselves and the person with whom they’re speaking.

This exchange doesn’t stop with players. There are various “fraternities” of college coaches who trade notes with each other, often at events such as the Coaches vs. Cancer gathering in Las Vegas two weeks ago. The same weekend as that event, a little less than 100 basketball strength coaches met at the Mendenhall Center on UNLV’s campus for a seminar geared to help everyone involved.

“A gathering of the minds, said Jason Kabo, the UNLV men’s basketball team’s strength coach.

This is the sixth year for the event, headed by Utah strength coach Charles Stephenson, but the first time it’s been held at UNLV. Stephenson recently left North Carolina State for Utah, which led to him looking for a West Coast destination for the seminar. Enter Kabo, who was more than happy to host the event.

Not only did Kabo enjoy making sure the gathering went off without a hitch, he also sees the brand benefit of making UNLV a destination for some of basketball’s best in the business.

Some of the panel speakers included Kansas’ Andrea Hudy, Baylor’s Charlie Melton and VCU’s Daniel Roose, whose work to prepare players for the Rams’ Havoc” full-court press is far from traditional. Kabo said Roose uses very few weight room workouts, instead having his players run drills like bear crawls across the court while pulling 45-pound plates.

Other speakers highlighted the benefits of TRX Suspension training or the different ways to use a Keiser machine.
