CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- Head coach Tommy Amaker hosted the fourth annual Harvard Men's Basketball Coaches Clinic at Lavietes Pavilion Saturday, Oct. 30.

More than 150 youth, high school and college coaches from in and around New England attended the coaches clinic. The event began with a typical Harvard men's basketball practice, as coaches in attendance were able to listen to coach Amaker's insight as the team conducted its drills and workout.

Following a break after lunch, special guest speaker and current Boston Celtics assistant coach Lawrence Frank spoke to those in attendance.  Coach Frank, who used to serve as the head coach of the New Jersey Nets, discussed the Boston Celtics' defensive philosophy, as well as introduced a number of drills the team does during a normal practice.   

The coaches in attendance were also given the opportunity to participate in a question and answer session with both coach Amaker and coach Frank.
