BABSON PARK, Mass.—Babson College head men's basketball coach Stephen Brennan will conduct a clinic as part of the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) Professional Development Series at the site of the Division I men's basketball Final Four this weekend in San Antonio.
The 2017 NABC Division III Coach of the Year, Brennan will speak at 1:30 p.m. ET on Sunday and focus his 45-minute presentation on multi-purpose defensive drills designed to make practices more efficient. The session will touch on small-group breakdown drills and 5-on-5 on defensive concepts.
The Professional Development Series (PDS) is a comprehensive, on-going continuing education program for basketball coaches of all levels. The focus of the program is to develop well-rounded coaches on a professional and personal level. Other featured speakers this weekend in San Antonio include former Boston College and current Kennesaw State University head coach Al Skinner, University of Oregon head coach Dana Altman and NBA coaching legend Gregg Popovich of the Spurs.
A nine-time conference coach of the year, Brennan led the Beavers to a school-record 31 wins and the Division III national championship in 2017. He ranks first in school history with 385 career wins and in 23 seasons at the helm has led the program to four New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) Tournament titles and seven NCAA Tournament appearances, which includes a Final Four berth in 2015.
Brennan's speaking engagement is one of just two ties for the men's basketball program at this weekend's Final Four. Current Villanova University assistant coach George Halcovage '08 was a four-year member of Brennan's program at Babson.
