Tennessee basketball strength and conditioning coach Garrett Medenwald has been invited to be a featured speaker at the 12th annual High Performance Basketball Symposium in Las Vegas, Nev.

The event takes place May 22-23 at the UNLV Basketball Training Center and also features presenters from Villanova, Gonzaga, Kentucky and the NBA’s San Antonio Spurs.

Medenwald’s presentation is entitled The Strength in Culture: The Process of Building Your Environment.

While most of his work is done away from the spotlight, Medenwald has been credited by Tennessee basketball coach Rick Barnes as playing a vitally important role in the recent resurgence of the program’s fortunes. This past season, the Vols tied a school record with 31 wins and spent a month ranked No. in the country.

Medenwald has been the architect of the training regimen that resulted in the highly publicized physical development of All-American forward Grant Williams and All-SEC wing Admiral Schofield, among others. Three of Medenwald’s pupils—Williams, Schofield and point guard Jordan Bone—earned invites to the 2019 NBA Draft Combine.

In addition to overseeing Tennessee basketball’s high-performance training program, Medenwald also works with his student-athletes on individualized nutrition plans.

With Medenwald on staff the past four years, Tennessee has won an SEC Championship, appeared in back-to-back NCAA Tournaments and in 2019 spent a month ranked atop both major polls. The Vols are 57-15 over the last two seasons.

The Big Orange are riding a streak of 35 consecutive weeks ranked in the top 25 and 20 straight weeks ranked in the national top 10.
