With all the emerging sports performance technology, player monitoring for basketball can be expensive and overwhelming.  I’ve asked my friend Bryce Daub to help us sift through the data and find the best bang for our buck.

Bryce Daub is entering his fifth season as the men’s basketball director of strength and performance. In his role, Daub oversees program design and implementation for all aspects of performance enhancement.

Before joining the Sooners, Daub spent the previous four seasons as the strength and conditioning coach for the University of Oregon men’s basketball program. Oregon had participated in the NCAA Tournament each of the last three seasons in Daub’s tenure and won at least one postseason game each of those years. The Ducks advanced to the Sweet 16 in 2013.

No stranger to central Oklahoma, Daub spent the 2010-11 season as an athletic performance coach with the Oklahoma City Thunder basketball franchise. The Thunder went 55-27, won the Northwest Division and advanced to the Western Conference Finals. Prior to his time in OKC, he served as a strength and conditioning intern with the Seattle Supersonics.

Daub played college basketball at Central Washington University in Ellensburg, Wash., where he earned both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in exercise science in 2008 and 2010, respectively. Following his playing career, he served as a graduate assistant strength and conditioning coach working specifically with men’s and women’s basketball, women’s soccer and track and field.

A Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) from the National Strength and Conditioning Association, Daub is also certified as a performance enhancement specialist (PES) and corrective exercise specialist (CES) through the National Academy of Sports Medicine.
