The Southern California Interscholastic Basketball Coaches' Association (SCIBCA), the same group that brings you the weekly CIF Southern Section Basketball polls during the regular high school season, will be holding a coaching clinic jointly sponsored by and held at Loyola Marymount University on Saturday October 18, 2000.   We first heard about this clinic last night while corresponding with our coach Rob Hanmer, one of the clinic participants, who is also the head boys basketball coach at Cathedral City HS.  But when we asked Rob to send us the details, we had no idea how quickly we'd get a response.  This morning, we received an e-mail from John D. Shaffer, the Sports Information Director at LMU, and here's the official press release:

Los Angeles, Calif. (Oct. 18)--As a two-time Big Sky Conference Coach of the Year and 1999-2000 NABC District 13 Coach of the Year, Loyola Marymount University first year Head Basketball Coach Steve Aggers has earned the respect of his coaching peers as an educator of the game. In 20 years as a head coach he has had help over the years, and Aggers will return the favor with the first annual Loyola Marymount University Basketball Coaching Clinic.

The clinic will be held Saturday, October 28, 2000 at Gersten Pavilion on the campus of Loyola Marymount University. LMU men’s basketball and the Southern California Interscholastic Basketball Coaches Association (SCIBCA) are co-sponsoring the free event that will run from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Speakers will include Aggers, Los Angeles Clippers Assistant Coach John Hammond, Cal State-Dominguez Hills Head Coach Larry Hauser, Fairfax High School Head Coach Harvey Kitani, Redondo Union High School Head Coach Jim Nielsen and Cathedral City High School Head Coach John Hanmer.

The topics to be covered are “Man to Man Defense,” “Offensive Quick Hitting Sets,” “Match-up Zone Defense,” “Transition/Fast Break Offense,” “Post Player Development” and “Individual Player Development at the High School Level.”

Aggers, in his first year at the helm of LMU basketball, earned the 1999-2000 coach of the year honors after leading Eastern Washington University to the Big Sky Championship. He brings to LMU a background of success at the Division I, Division II, NAIA and Junior College levels.

Hammond begins his second stint as an NBA assistant with the Clippers in 2000.  He has served on the staff of several Division I programs, most recently
spending last season at the University of Missouri as the associate head coach.

Hauser was a long time assistant at Santa Clara University in the West Coast Conference before taking over the reign at CS-Dominguez Hills. His match up defense is known throughout Southern California.

Nielsen, Kitani and Hanmer have all had tremendous success on the high school level here in Southern California and each has had his share of players move on to play at the next level.
