- Head Men's Basketball Coach, Men's Basketball
In five seasons, K.C. Hunt has taken the Wilmington College men’s basketball program to national prominence.
In Coach Hunt’s first two seasons, the Quakers posted a combined 32-20 record and earned berths in two consecutive Ohio Athletic Conference Championships. In 2009-10, Wilmington won a school-record 22 games and captured its first OAC Tournament title and made its first appearance in the NCAA Championship, where the Quakers advanced to the second round before losing to No. 10 Eastern Mennonite University. Hunt was named the 2010 Great Lakes Region Coach of the Year.
For Hunt and the Quakers, they are looking to build on its tournament finish that had them falling short of winning the OAC championship.
“The Wilmington College basketball program is in a very good position,” Hunt said. “We’ve got a young nucleus that returns next year after graduating three incredible seniors. I think we’re poised to keep this program going in a winning direction.”
Hunt’s team plays 40 minutes of intense basketball that is fueled by relentless effort on both ends of the court. And it all starts with high-pressure defense.
Hunt played collegiate basketball at Wichita State University, and finished his career in the top 10 all-time in both steals and assists.
A 1995 graduate of The Ohio State University, Hunt coached at St. Lawrence University, Dublin Coffman and Perry high schools prior to joining Wilmington’s staff in 2004.
