Segment One: Sports Medicine: College vs NBA

Porter MoserLoyola University (Chicago) Men’s Basketball Coach Porter Moser talks with Bulls Team Physician, Dr. Brian Cole about how injury prevention & treatment and training in college basketball compares with that in the NBA. Entering his fifth season at the helm, Porter Moser engineered one of the best single-season improvements of any Division I program last season and has the Loyola University Chicago men’s basketball program firmly headed in the right direction. A native of Naperville, Ill., and a graduate of Benet Academy, Moser most recently served as the associate head coach at Saint Louis University under the late, great head coach Rick Majerus. Known as a tireless recruiter and a master game tactician, Moser has coached numerous all-conference players in his coaching career and Loyola’s 24 wins last season were a culmination of his hard work recruiting and ability to put his players in a position to win games.
