Elyse Kiploks enters her second season as Charleston Southern's Director of Basketball Operations. In her role, Kiploks oversees the daily operations of the program as well as community outreach, travel, meals, logistics and runs the CSU women's basketball social media accounts.
In her two seasons, Kiploks has spearheaded a huge committment to community outreach for the program as women's basketball has recently helped with organizations such as Louie's Kids, Ronald McDonald House, the American Heart Association, Carolina Youth Development Center, the Humane Society and CSU's Military Clinic at the Charleston Military Base. Each player on the 2018-19 roster will have completed 20 hours of community service before tipoff on November 6 thanks to Kiplok's efforts.
Kiploks also oversees the logisitics of the program from pre and postgame meals, travel schedule, and other various operational roles.
During Kiploks' first on the sideline at her alma mater, CSU sat near the top in many statistical categories of the Big South Conference including Weknyne Dumorne's 2.0 blocks per game - making it two-straight seasons CSU had the league-leader in shots deterred.
A two-year starter for the Buccaneers' women's basketball team, Kiploks led the Big South in 2016-17 in defensive rebounds per game (5.6). She was third in the Big South in blocked shots per game (1.3), fourth in the league in rebounds per game (7.3) and fourth in minutes played (1,094).
Kiploks joined the Bucs from Melbourne, Australia, where she lined up at both forward positions at the Sports Education Development Australia. She also played for the Sandringham Sabres club team. She came to CSU from Coffeyville Community College.
