2018 Porter Moser Coaching Clinic
Loyola University (Chicago) became the media darlings of the 2018 NCAA men’s basketball tournament with their unprecedented run to the Final Four. Now, take a look inside the program of head coach Porter Moser who shares some of his secrets from philosophy to drills that have made his program successful.
The Ramblers were last year’s Missouri Valley Conference regular season and conference tournament champions and Moser, in just his fifth season at Loyola, took the Ramblers all the way to the Final Four. One of the biggest reasons for the success of Moser’s program is the culture which has three simple rules: 1) protect the team, 2) no excuses, no complaining, no entitlement, and 3) be early.
Warm Up, Perfection, and Shooting Drills
Porter Moser begins practice with the 130 Passes drill. The team must complete the required number of passes in one minute without the ball hitting the ground. It is a great way to get players locked in and mentally ready for the day’s practice.
The next phase of practice consists of Perfection Drills which, of course, demand perfection. The drills involve layups with no defense. There are also shooting drills such as “One More Shooting” and Full-Court 3-Point Shooting” which are competitive long-range shooting drills that force players to focus and hit more shots.
Porter Moser puts his players through individual offensive and defensive skill work. On offense, the Ramblers’ philosophy is one of “pace and space” and you will see that as Moser puts his players through their offensive skill work. Moser splits the floor in half by position and demands everything be done at full speed with no detail spared.
After the offensive drill circuit, players move to defense. Using a variety of drills, Moser emphasizes defensive fundamentals such as moving the feet and maintaining active hands. At the end of this part of practice, guards and post players come together to complete combined skill work with an emphasis on things like ball screens.
Competitive Drills & Games
The better part of the second half of the video is spent on the team drills Moser uses with his players. These drills are performed at game speed so that Moser is able to offer valuable feedback to help his players improve. His Shell Drill is unique in that it is run in the full court which demands that players remain active.
To finish practice, Moser shows you two games that he uses to force players to compete. The 7, 8, 9 Free Throws Drill puts pressure on your athletes to knock down shots at the line in order to come away with a win. It is drills such as these that have helped Moser build a power at Loyola in such a short period of time. If you are looking for the type of practices you need to be successful, this 126-minute video is a great place to start. Rent this Porter Moser coaching DVD today.
