Episode 286: Ganiyat Adeduntan, her Philosophy and the Joys in the Journey

Guest: Ganiyat Adeduntan, Colgate University Head Coach

Colgate University head coach Ganiyat Adeduntan shares insights on her defend, rebound, and champion plays philosophy and the joys in the journey.

In her second season Ganiyat Adeduntan orchestrated one of the greatest single-season improvements in program history. Colgate increased its win total by 10 games in 2022-23, finishing 16-14 overall and 10-8 in Patriot League play to secure the No. 4 seed in the Patriot League tournament.

One of the greatest factors contributing to last season's success was Adeduntan's defense, which ranked ninth nationally in three-point field goal percentage defense (25.6) and 12th in scoring defense (54.6) – good enough to lead the Patriot League in both categories. Colgate finished over .500 against Patriot League opponents for the third time since 2000.
