Steve Lutz Tabs Brooks-Sena to Lead Scouting, Analytics

April 17, 2024

Oklahoma State head men's basketball coach Steve Lutz announced the hiring of Isaiah Brooks-Sena (pronounced SEN-uh) as Director of Scouting and Analytics.

Brooks-Sena – who goes by "Zeke" – has been with Lutz for every step of his head coaching journey, serving as Texas A&M-Corpus Christi's Video Coordinator during the 2022-23 season and most recently as Director of Operations/Scouting at Western Kentucky in 2023-24.

"Zeke is as loyal and hard-working as they come," Lutz said. "His film breakdowns and outstanding people skills have helped take our recruiting, scouting and player development to another level. I look forward to more of the same here at OSU."

Last year Western Kentucky won 22 games and the Conference USA tournament title on the way an NCAA tournament bid. In 2022-23, Corpus Christi swept the Southland's regular season and tournament crows and won the first NCAA tournament game in school history.

Brooks-Sena was also involved in a successful run at Akron as the program's graduate assistant under head coach John Groce. The 2021-22 Zips won 24 games and the MAC tournament crown on the way to their first NCAA appearance in nine years.

A Santa Fe native, Brooks-Sena spent four years as a student manager at the University of New Mexico under former head coach Paul Weir – the last as head manager. He graduated in May 2021 with a degree in business administration with a concentration in marketing.

While at UNM, Brooks-Sena also coached various youth league teams through the Laguna Sports Academy, a local non-profit dedicated to enriching the lives of Native American children through athletic and academic programming.

Brooks-Sena is the fourth staff addition announced by Lutz, joining associate head coach James Miller and assistant coaches Robert Guster and Keiton Page.
