About Hank Iba
1969 Basketball Hall of Fame inductee and 2006 College Basketball Hall of Famer (posthumous) Henry Payne Iba was a former American basketball player who became a coach and collegiate athletics executive.
The baseball player lived out his early life in Missouri and went to college at Westminster, where he sharpened his athletic skills and excelled at the sport. Iba was bent on playing professionally and trained with many professionals in the discipline.
His prayers were heard, and he was selected to play for Westminster as a center from 1923 to 1927. However, after his contract ended, Iba followed his passion as a basketball coach and coached Classen HS (OK) from 1927 to 1929. He amassed a lot of success and experience and also coached Northwest Missouri State from 1929 to 1933. Colorado was his next team, which he coached from 1934 to 1970. He later moved to Oklahoma A&M / State, where he coached his last team from 1934 to 1970 before bringing his coaching career to an end.
The Oklahoma native also coached the United States Men's basketball team from 1964 to 1972 and won several gold medals, including two at two Summer Olympic Games – 1964 Tokyo Olympics and 1968 Mexico City Olympics. At the 1972 Olympic Games held in Munich, he led the US Men’s team to a silver medal.
The basketball star died in 1993, having distinguished himself brilliantly as a coach.
