Chattanooga Mocs head basketball coach John Shulman is a featured speaker at this weekend’s Nike Championship Basketball Clinic at the Harrah’s Tunica Events Center in Tunica, Miss. The clinic begins Friday, May 4, and continues through Sunday, May 6.
Shulman is scheduled to be joined by Bobby Knight, Bob Huggins, Rick Majerus, Leonard Hamilton, Brad Stevens, Josh Pastner and Mark Fox among others. Each will discuss their particular topic for an hour, 15 minutes except coach Knight who has the floor for a full two hours. Shulman’s presentation is on “Man-to-Man Defense and Doubling the Post”.
Fox opens the clinic on Friday evening followed by Knight. Pastner, Hamilton, Stevens, Huggins and Majerus are part of a six-man lineup on Saturday. Shulman closes the event on Sunday.
“I’m excited,” Shulman stated. “If you are a basketball purist, you spend time at clinics in the spring and fall and the big deal was always to go to the Nike Basketball Coach’s Clinic. From an early age, I started going and you always dream of being on that podium.
“I got a call in September/October asking me to be one of the clinicians,” he added. “I am thrilled and honored and love talking at clinics. There’ll be coaches from all over the country from Division I coaches to middle school.”
Shulman and his staff are hosting two team camps and three individual camps this summer. Both team camps run consecutively June 8-10 and 11-13, while the three individual camps are June 2, 24-28 and August 11. Full camp information is available on GoMocs.com.
