Jay Wright: 1-2-2 and 1-1-2-1 Three-Quarter Court Pressure Defense
with Jay Wright,
Villanova Head Basketball Coach; 2016 NCAA Champions;
2015 Big East Tournament Champions, 4x Big East Regular Season Champions, 4x Big East Coach of the Year

Villanova head coach Jay Wright is one of the nation's top basketball coaches. In this video, you'll see why he's also considered one of the best teachers of the game as well. Coach Wright shares his three-quarter court, 1-2-2 defensive pressure scheme. This is the same scheme that aided in the Wildcats' run to the 2016 NCAA Championship.

Coach Wright shares four base strategies you can use to defend out of a three-quarter court 1-2-2 defense. He runs through additional plays and strategies and shows you how to convert back into a 1-3-1 or 2-3 zone defense. You will also see how to effectively guard ball screens when defending zone offense.

Basic Multiple Defense Concepts

In order to teach a scheme, a coach must first understand the various layers of the underlying philosophy. Coach Wright provides viewers with the complete knowledge necessary for coaches looking to apply the packaged set with their teams.

Coach Wright explains the setup of the 1-2-2 press and, based on the physical traits of certain players, where they should play. He gives five reasons to run a press and emphasizes the one thing the press absolutely cannot give up. He also covers the five rules he uses and the responsibilities each position has.

Defensive Plays

Coach Wright shows what the great teams try to do and how you need to be prepared for it. He shows where they like to trap and how they come out to trap. Ball reversal, skip passes, and back row containment are covered as well. Coach Wright breaks down various defensive scenarios to using the multiple defensive scheme. You will:

  • Learn the concept of attack small and retreat big and how to fake trap and trap
  • Discover how to keep the ball out of the middle of the floor
  • Learn how to get your players to get to ball side of the defense
  • See how to convert or get back on defense to avoid giving up an open 3-point shot

1-3-1 and 2-3 Defenses

You'll see how to convert back into a 1-3-1 and 2-3 zone out of a multiple defense look. Coach Wright shows you:

  • How to teach your players to stay aggressive while playing zone defense
  • How to "tag" someone so that players know who they're guarding and boxing out while in zone defense
  • How to use man principles to play zone defense

1-1-2-1 Press

Coach Wright shows the 1-1-2-1, which initially looks identical to the 1-2-2 press. This defense is more of a conservative press and it is used whenever they play a half court 2-3 zone defense. He shows how to start in the 1-1-2-1 press and then how to convert to a 2-3 zone. The session then moves into how Coach Wright plays the 2-3 zone with the rules and responsibilities associated for each position. The key for their zone defense is every defender should be matched up with an offensive player on every shot. You'll see how the zone handles ball screens, overloads, and post ups.

Guarding Against Ball Screens

Learn the concept of spacing when playing against ball screens. Coach Wright shows you how to deny shooters off ball screens. He also gives you how to have a player being screened go under and over the zone depending on the skills of the player they're guarding.

Coach Wright gives you the complete package to installing the multiple defense with your team. From traps, to fake traps to staying aggressive in multiple defenses, this video is a must have for all defensive minded coaches.

Produced at the Spring 2015 Pittsburgh (PA) clinic.

with Fran Fraschilla,
International Basketball Analyst for ESPN,
former Division I college basketball coach (Manhattan College, St. John's University and University of New Mexico),
former NABC District II Coach of the Year and MAAC Coach of the Year

Fran Fraschilla compiles the latest and greatest ideas on basketball offense from his decades of experience as a coach and as an ESPN analyst to deliver the ultimate guide to the Horns offense. You will see how to use the options in this offensive system to create a structured motion that can be tailored to suit the talents of your personnel.

In addition to these motion offense concepts, Coach Fraschilla also shows you over 25 set plays being used at the highest levels of basketball, such as the NBA and international play.

The Horns Offense

Learn the central principles to the Horns offense, including the spacing and roles of players in the offense. Coach Fraschilla shows you how to string together a series of 2- and 3-player actions in a structured motion based on four main types of cuts.

With every cut, you will learn the options that your players can utilize by reading the defense, as well as the technique required to score from those actions. Offensive actions include playing off of wide pin downs, dribble hand-offs, ball screens, flex cuts, dribble penetration and more.

Ball Screens

See how to improve the effectiveness of ball screens in your offense with the set plays and concepts that Coach Fraschilla has learned from studying the best teams in the world. Some of the keys to these plays are to incorporate false motion to scramble the defense, optimize spacing and separate your post from their defender as they sprint into a ball screen.

Learn how to use new tactics to execute ball screens, including flip screens for defenders that go under, the short roll versus aggressive defenses, back action for sagging defenders and the invisible screen to open up gaps for dribble penetration.

Set Plays

Coach Fraschilla expands on other scoring options with more than 15 set plays. A series of plays taken from the best teams in international basketball will show you how to score off staggered screens, pin downs, flex screens and post ups. The Horns set that Argentina has used to great success in recent international play is broken down in detail. You will see how multiple options can be created from this set to score off lobs, ball screens and down screens.

Multiple plays are also shown to help you create isolations for your best players and teach them how to score in late game situations. Coach Fraschilla explains how the 2015 NBA Champion Golden State Warriors flowed into the Horns offense with a secondary break that utilizes wide pin downs and stagger screens to free up shooters.

Fran Fraschilla has assembled the must-have resource for any coach who uses the Horns alignment in their offense. You'll be able to take bits and pieces from the video and implement them into your Horns offense or improve your preferred style of play.

Tom Izzo: Open Practice Series
BD-04889A: with Tom Izzo,Michigan State University Head Coach;Distinguished member of the Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame (2016);3x National Coach of the Year,2000 NCAA Tournament Champions; 7 Final Four appearances;7x Big Ten and 4x Big Ten Tournament Champions; 3x Big Ten Coach of the YearMichigan State head coach Tom Izzo is widely recognized as a master technician when it comes to basketball's X's and O's. In this open look at a Michigan State practice, you will get an unparalleled amount of insight into the offensive philosophy of Coach Izzo. He explains the theory behind his offensive system, diagrams some of his favorite plays and demonstrates them in a live practice setting. Favoring pro-style offensive sets and half-court execution in order to get the right shot, Coach Izzo guides players through every detail within each set's execution. Numerous aspects to the offensive playbook are on display, such as sets relating to zone quick hitters, man-to-man half-court offense, transition offense, and end-of-shot-clock plays. Using whole concepts, Coach Izzo runs through each set multiple times as the coaches actively teach and reteach the offense. PhilosophyUnderstanding why Coach Izzo runs certain plays at certain times is essential to implement the Michigan State offense. He loves to use set plays to get his guys and the ball where he wants them. You'll learn why Coach Izzo likes to run a pro set and let his players freelance as well. He discusses his player's roles, some of the special players he's had through the years and how he used them.Zone OffenseBelieving that quick hitters are the best approach to attacking zone defenses, Coach Izzo utilizes a whiteboard to diagram several sets aimed at applying pressure to the weak areas common to zone defenses. With the core philosophy being to always attack from the inside out, each set applies pressure to the back end of the zone, whether it be in the corners or on the blocks. The basic form he sets up is the 1-3-1. Within this set, he is able to attack 2-3, 1-2-2 and 1-3-1 zones. Having a universal set can simplify how your team attacks the zone. Coach Izzo diagrams three of his go-to plays against 2-3 and 1-3-1 zone defenses in addition to demonstrating several more on the floor in practice with walk-through and scrimmage segments. The 1-3-1 Double will free up an open scoring opportunity with a double screen by forcing the outnumbered defense to leave a player undefended. Other plays make use of ball screens, lobs, high post flashes, and pin downs to help you score against the zone in a variety of ways.All plays are on display in a live practice setting as the zone offense segment closes with a lengthy scrimmage session in which Izzo offers corrections in order for each set to be effective.Man-to-Man OffenseCoach Izzo uses packages of set plays in his man-to-man offense. He breaks down five plays in his Horns and 452 series of quick hitters on the whiteboard before you get to see two scrimmage formats in practice. Utilizing the Horns alignment, each set is equipped with a counter attack that is available depending on how the defense chooses to cover it. All plays are designed to get the ball into the key in some fashion, either by a wing pick & roll towards the middle or a direct entry to either high post player. Structured Transition Offense Learn how to stay organized while playing fast. In addition to Coach Izzo's explanation of the break, you get a chance to see it in action through two practice drills. These drills show you all of the scoring options available with a walk through in the 5-on-0 Break and how they translate in live competition with the Dummy War into Break drill. End of Shot Clock ExecutionCoach Izzo places 10 seconds on the shot clock and has the team execute a series of quick hitter sets in order to get the best shot possible when the pressure of a shot clock violation arises. A brief, but effective segment has the Spartans execute several of the plays previously men[...]

Practice 1The first disc of this all access series features the second practice of the 2013-14 season, which gives you a unique opportunity to see how Coach Smart familiarizes new players with his system. This session begins with a video breakdown of the "Double Fist" man-to-man full-court pressure defense. You'll learn numerous ways to trap in transition, all pointed out and explained by Coach Smart himself.In the practice, Coach Smart walks through several new concepts including a new play in their secondary break and how to defend outnumbered situations. Defense is a major area of emphasis in this practice, with an extended series of drills that work on help-and-recover versus baseline penetration as well as defending 5-on-4 and 4-on-3 situations. Coach Smart talks about the "fix it" concept, a strategy used when the ball is passed out of the trap and the defense is at a disadvantage. Offensively, you'll see a concept called "Flow Work." This up-tempo attack comes right out of transition, and is one of the staples of Coach Smart's program. Practice 2In this practice, you'll see how to split up your team to provide more direct individual attention to a smaller group of players during the critical installation phase of offensive and defensive concepts. Coach Smart teaches his team how to load to the ball in transition to contain the opposing point guard.

Throughout the practice, you'll see how Coach Few breaks down the whole to ensure players learn how to do the little things - which leads to getting the big things accomplished. Coach Few and his staff are constantly communicating and teaching. Every mistake is addressed and every success is acknowledged. Practice 2Coach Few continues establishing the foundation of his defensive system. Many of the drills emphasize raising the intensity of the on-ball pressure. In the "Z Drill" and "Snake Pit," defenders focus on keeping the ball in front of them. The "Pressure Trap Drill" teaches players to aggressively play for deflections. In another major defensive segment, the team focuses on coordinating with one another to defend ball screens with hard shows, soft shows, traps, switches, and X-outs. The team breaks down by position for individual skill work. The post players work on high/low entries and finishing in the post while the guards drill driving, spacing, and relocating. Both guards and bigs simulate the shots that they will get in Gonzaga's half-court offense. The practice session concludes with a 5-on-5 half-court scrimmage. Coach Few goes into the detail teaching the Bulldogs' set versus man-to-man defense. He stresses making the proper reads and knowing the fundamentals of each play.Practice 3The building blocks of offensive and defensive strategies continue to be emphasized in the third practice. To read ball screens effectively, new drills are introduced to teach players how to quickly dismantle defensive reactions. After working on fundamentals, the Bulldogs work on defending off-ball screens and helping on drives. Coach Few introduces "icing" the pick-and-roll in this practice. Icing is a ball screen defense in the NBA that forces the ball handler, in a side pick and roll, towards the baseline and away from the middle. Gonzaga's Blue coverage is also introduced. Blue is a big-on-big double on the post when the offense has three on the perimeter and two inside. Coach Few goes over how to trap and rotate. In 4-on-4 shell drill, the Bulldogs use a scoring system that rewards defense in various ways. On offense, breakdown drills are used to teach players how to make reads out of side ball screen situations. Full-court drills such as "Laker Break" and "Rebound to Break" are used to show players how to score in transition off a fast break or to flow into their half-court offense while keeping the defense on their heels. In the guard/forward skill segment, each position learns how to battle for rebounds. Practice ends with a 5-on-5 [...]



Aggressive 1-3-1 Zone Defense
with Tom Blackford,
Fayetteville Manlius (NY) High School Head Boys Basketball Coach;
distinguished member of the New York State Basketball Hall of Fame;
over 400 victories, 2x New York State High School Champions

Legendary high school basketball coach Tom Blackford opens his practice session to demonstrate his dominating 1-3-1 half-court defense. With over 30 years of experience and more than 400 career victories at two separate schools (Hamilton High School and Fayetteville Manlius High School), Coach Blackford has built programs that successfully contend for the New York state title year after year. In this exciting presentation, he shares his secrets to developing a smothering 1-3-1 defense.

In detailed manner, Coach Blackford teaches the responsibilities and actions of the chaser, wings, center and point guard. His primary emphasis here is letting players play without over-thinking their actions. He allows his players to trap and move freely within the parameters of simple rules.

When teaching this aggressive 1-3-1, Coach Blackford starts with two offensive players bringing the ball up against all five defenders. This technique develops the chaser's skills.

Next, the defense faces three offensive players with a focus on trapping and getting the ball out of the middle.

In the next phase, five offensive players set up in a 2-1-2 formation, the most common approach to attacking a 1-3-1 defense. Here the defense works on getting in the passing lanes, stopping dribble penetration, box out responsibilities, defending the high post, low post and dealing with the short corner.

To make the defense even more effective, Coach Blackford shows how the 1-3-1 can transform into a "Triangle & Two," "Box-in-One" or "Match-Up" defense in the middle of an offensive possession.

As a bonus, Coach Blackford spends 20 minutes on the offensive side of the ball demonstrating two shooting drills and three offensive plays. These plays include:

  • Secondary - an offensive set that can quickly be run out of transition
  • Syracuse - a play that uses multiple double screens
  • Michigan State Interchange - a 4-out 1-in play with the post player giving back screen and ball screen action

Coach Blackford also shares some of the proven strategies he's used over the years to build successful programs.

This season, adjust and disguise your aggressive 1-3-1 defense on the fly using these proven strategies and techniques.

Hall Award Recipient (nation's top first-year coach), 2014 Jim Phelan Award Finalist (top Division I coach), 2x (2015 & 2014) Hugh Durham Award Finalist (top mid-major coach)In the 2013-14 season, first year Stephen F. Austin coach Brad Underwood led his team to a 32-3 record. His team became the first in school history to earn a berth in the NCAA tournament and advance to the second round of the tournament as a 12 seed. The Jacks were one of only three schools in the nation to go undefeated in conference play in the 2013-14 season. With offensive schemes changing every year, coaches are always looking for an edge. Stephen F. Austin State University Head Coach Brad Underwood shares his version of the basketball spread offense, a continuity-based scheme that creates a lot of movement to stress the defense. This scheme is a "position-less offense," which gives the defense different looks based on the different entries that can be used. The spacing, passing, cutting and driving lanes available ensures that your team gets high percentage shots. Coach Underwood breaks down his spread offense in a whole-part-whole instructional set-up, including drills that provide great scoring opportunities . Coach Underwood starts by showing where players are positioned on the court and how they will move once the first entry pass is made. No matter what entry is made, two offensive players make consecutive hard basket cuts. If they don't get a high percentage shot, they move into 2-man game. Coach Underwood breaks down all of the cuts made to execute these offensive concepts, which has continuity from either side of the court. He then demonstrates three ways to flow into the offense if the initial wing entry is not open. Each action is based on the point guard's decision. The basic entry is the wing entry. Coach Underwood explains why it's important for players to fight to get their spot, and what they can do to get that spot. High post entry is used when facing teams that like to pressure the perimeter. Dribble entry provides another different look using a down screening action on the weak side to get a player a great post up opportunity. All of these entries are reads and not particularly calls from the bench.Breakdown DrillsCoach Underwood breaks down daily practice drills to teach the skills and build the habits needed to run the offense effectively. Players learn to play each spot and while the entire team is involved, the drills are broken down into the 2-, 3- and 4-player actions of the offense. The drills focus on fast and aggressive cuts, which is the most important element to a successful offense. Coach Underwood also shares an in-depth look at next most important element, which is his two-man game. Lastly, he emphasizes the fill players, who are a vital part of the offense to keep the floors spaced and balance in order to stress the defense. Coach Underwood also shows you how an element of the popular dribble drive motion offense can be used with his spread offense to create favorable match-ups and post player looks. If you're looking to spread the floor with an offense that combines great cuts, post play and an effective two-man game, look no further. Coach Underwood shares a complete spread offense package that creates a continuity offense while incorporating the key elements of the new and upcoming styles of offense. 52 minutes. 2014.[...]

Using stagger screens, quick ball reversals into ball screens, and spacing puts the defense in difficult positions and aids in creating shots off the pass rather than the dribble.Tim Floyd Segment:UTEP Head Coach Tim Floyd shows his NBA influence with the 43 play. Court spacing and a high screen and roll leads to dribble penetration at mid-key with two shooters at the ready in the deep corners if the defense decides to collapse on the dribble drive.Tara VanDerveer Segment:Hall of Famer and current Stanford Head Coach Tara VanDerveer has her team execute Scram, a play designed to dupe the defense into overplaying a double screen, which leaves the screener open on a duck in at the rim.Pat Summitt Series:Hall of Famer and former Tennessee Head Coach Pat Summitt, puts her team through Spin, Horns, and Horns 2, a series of [...]



Shaka Smart's 2013 Basketball Coaches Clinic
with Shaka Smart, University of Texas Head Coach;
2016 USA Basketball U18 National Team Head Coach;
former Virginia Commonwealth University Head Coach;
2011 Clarence Gaines National Coach of the Year. 2011 Final Four appearance. Four 27-win seasons (2009-2013).

See how Shaka Smart, one of the brightest coaches in the game today, builds a winning program. This presentation gives you access to an early season practice. Over the span of 150 minutes, the Rams run a fast-paced workout with a focus on individual and team defense, breaking down offensive skills and learning to execute their game plan in competitive scenarios.

Coach Smart's teams are known for their intense pressure defense. In this session, they work on trapping and defending against pin down screens. They use 3-on-3 to develop their full-court defensive pressure skills. Players guard the ball, defend the ball side, help side, etc., focusing on foot fakes and jumping to the ball to understand that they are connected on the court and working together. The "Rapid Fire" drill works on closeout techniques, teaching correct form and building the habit of a correct closeout. Later in the session, players run a weak side closeout drill.

Coach Smart uses stations to emphasize various fundamentals of half-court defense. Stations maximize practice time by using assistant coaches to teach multiple skills in a short period of time. Assistant coaches run separate stations and teach defensive techniques that focus on defending pin down screens, help-side perimeter defense and guarding the weak side exchange. They run several different defensive shell drills for man and zone defense, and disadvantage drills to train players to think one pass ahead and to work on rotations. At the end of the session, they work on taking a perfect charge.

All skill development is done within the framework of the Rams' high/low offense. Watch as Coach Smart teaches post players to steal and see the various low post moves that they develop. Perimeter players work on cutting and dribble penetration. From that they work on the shots and layups they get from the penetration. Various competitive shooting drills are run at different times throughout the practice.

Later in the session, players walk through their transition, zone and player-to-player offenses. From 5-on-0 to playing live 5-on-5, these settings are used to teach both offensive and defensive principles.

In the second part of the presentation, Coach Smart takes the floor and discusses the principles and core values of his program. He also explains why he believes his teams play so hard for him.

Shaka Smart's 2013 Basketball Coaches Clinic
with Shaka Smart, University of Texas Head Coach;
2016 USA Basketball U18 National Team Head Coach;
former Virginia Commonwealth University Head Coach;
2011 Clarence Gaines National Coach of the Year. 2011 Final Four appearance. Four 27-win seasons (2009-2013).

See how Shaka Smart, one of the brightest coaches in the game today, builds a winning program. This presentation gives you access to an early season practice. Over the span of 150 minutes, the Rams run a fast-paced workout with a focus on individual and team defense, breaking down offensive skills and learning to execute their game plan in competitive scenarios.

Coach Smart's teams are known for their intense pressure defense. In this session, they work on trapping and defending against pin down screens. They use 3-on-3 to develop their full-court defensive pressure skills. Players guard the ball, defend the ball side, help side, etc., focusing on foot fakes and jumping to the ball to understand that they are connected on the court and working together. The "Rapid Fire" drill works on closeout techniques, teaching correct form and building the habit of a correct closeout. Later in the session, players run a weak side closeout drill.

Coach Smart uses stations to emphasize various fundamentals of half-court defense. Stations maximize practice time by using assistant coaches to teach multiple skills in a short period of time. Assistant coaches run separate stations and teach defensive techniques that focus on defending pin down screens, help-side perimeter defense and guarding the weak side exchange. They run several different defensive shell drills for man and zone defense, and disadvantage drills to train players to think one pass ahead and to work on rotations. At the end of the session, they work on taking a perfect charge.

All skill development is done within the framework of the Rams' high/low offense. Watch as Coach Smart teaches post players to steal and see the various low post moves that they develop. Perimeter players work on cutting and dribble penetration. From that they work on the shots and layups they get from the penetration. Various competitive shooting drills are run at different times throughout the practice.

Later in the session, players walk through their transition, zone and player-to-player offenses. From 5-on-0 to playing live 5-on-5, these settings are used to teach both offensive and defensive principles.

In the second part of the presentation, Coach Smart takes the floor and discusses the principles and core values of his program. He also explains why he believes his teams play so hard for him. He talks about the "havoc" style of play and how it starts on the first day of practice with full-court 1-on-1 and how he builds from there. All aspects of the VCU defense are discussed during a question-and-answer session .

Harry Perretta's 5-Out Motion Offense, Volume 2
with Harry Perretta, Villanova University Women's Basketball Coach,
over 630 career wins

Nearly 10 years ago, Harry Perretta produced one of Championship Productions' top-selling "5-Out Motion Offense" videos. Thousands of coaches learned how to control tempo and enhance their players' abilities using his 5-out motion. Now, Coach Perretta returns to show how he has taken his 5-out offense to a new level by adding:

  • dribble drive action
  • reverse curl action
  • more movement on the perimeter for the 4 and 5
  • flare and slip screens with non-stop action
  • dribble action to improve the passing angles to post players

Other valuable concepts are taught within the offense and when put together as a whole, this offense is incredibly hard to scout and can level the playing field when playing against more athletic teams.

In his new presentation, Coach Perretta shows the entire offense and discusses how he has updated it. It all begins with a series of seven different cuts called by numbers. Using on-court demonstrations, he explains each cut option in a 5-on-0 setting and shows you how to teach it to your players. Next, Coach Peretta demonstrates how easily you can call plays, fakes and combination plays from the sideline without using a timeout. From 5-on-0 to 3-on-3 to 5-on-5, Coach Perretta steadily builds your knowledge of the system so you will be able to easily implement it into your program

As players come off of screens or cuts, the offense seamlessly morphs into the dribble drive action. With the dribble drive element, shots quickly open up as the defense is forced to help on the ball handler. Coach Perretta also shows how motion offense concepts can be used as secondary break options. Using his unique numbering system, players run the break and jump into quick plays. Players no longer need to learn a fast break, secondary break and set plays, which frees up valuable practice time for other work.

Use this video to install a hard-to-guard offensive system or to simply add some valuable basketball actions. With the "Updated 5-Out Motion Offense," you will have complete control of your offense and you'll be able to pick your opponents defense apart from the sideline.

Fran McCaffery: The 1-2-2 Three-Quarter Court Press
with Fran McCaffery, University of Iowa Head Coach;
2012-13 NIT Runner-Up; 2014 NCAA Tournament;
former head coach at Siena; three straight Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference championships and NCAA Tournament appearances at Siena (2008-10)

Fran McCaffery, head coach at the University of Iowa, shares his stifling form of full-court, three-quarter-court, and half-court defense out of the 1-2-2. In this presentation, he demonstrates the various ways this defense can be used along with game situations it can be adapted to fit and how any coaching style can use some aspect of it. Coach McCaffery uses on-court demonstrations to give an in-depth look at four different versions of the 1-2-2 three-quarter press: Traditional, Grey, Late Game, and Contain.

Traditional
Coach McCaffery starts with the basics of the 1-2-2 three-quarter press. He shows how to maximize your team's potential by clearly explaining players' roles and responsibilities. You'll also learn how to read your opponent's attack against your press, which opens the door for later versions of your press game. See how to implement a basic trapping game at half-court and in the front court for a late trap. Learn how to fall back into a traditional 1-2-2 zone and morph your defense into a 2-3 zone as teams struggle to break your press.

Grey
If your opponent figures out how to beat your traditional 1-2-2 press, you can confuse them by creating a faster-paced press. Use the "Grey" option to make your opponent think you're playing a traditional press. Then, create havoc by switching to man-to-man principles after the first pass. Watch scoring opportunities open up as your force your opponents to put the ball into the hands of their worst ball handlers.

Late Game
Just when your opponent thinks they have a grasp on your game, you can use Coach McCaffery's third option to disguise your 1-2-2 three-quarter press and create overall confusion. Late in the game as your team looks to seal the lead, you can change calls to force your opponent to dribble more and waste time as they bring the ball up court. By forcing your opponent to dribble more, pick the ball up and make long cross-court passes, your can force a 10-second call. Learn how to force teams to play east-west instead of moving the ball up the court.

Contain
To finish off your opponent, Coach McCaffery shows you how to "contain" the basketball as you force your opponent into multiple traps. Learn how to get the ball out of the hands of the best ball handler and how to force your opponent to make bad decisions, turning the ball over and leading to more scoring opportunities for your team. Your opponent will feel pressured into making bad passes across court.

If your team is built for a zone pressure scheme, then Coach McCaffery's 1-2-2 zone press is just the right mix for you. Coach McCaffery shows how to create pressure and indecision for your opponent's offense. This philosophy will disguise your defense and create uncertainty with each possession. This is a must-have DVD filled with strategies that will help any coach and team become successful..

Shaka Smart: Using Ball Screens in Your Offense
with Shaka Smart, University of Texas Head Coach;
2016 USA Basketball U18 National Team Head Coach;
former Virginia Commonwealth University Head Coach;
2011 Clarence Gaines National Coach of the Year. 2011 Final Four appearance. Four 27-win seasons (2009-2013).

Shaka Smart, known for his Havoc Pressure Defense, switches to the offensive end of the floor to demonstrate how he imposes offensive havoc on his opponents by incorporating ball screens into transition and half court offense. This potent offensive strategy is used throughout basketball and has become one of the best tools to get players open looks at the basket. In this presentation, Coach Smart demonstrates seven types of ball screens and effective situations for using them in your half court offense. He includes defensive strategies that are used against the screens and how to counter each defensive strategy.

These ball screens will:

  • Force your opponents to guard disadvantage situations
  • Create roles for other players on your team
  • Exploit your opponent's weak defenders

Many teams choose to defend ball screens one way, and if your team has an effective counter for that defense, they can easily score. Whether it's the common hedge, the switch or the trap, Coach Smart shows how the defense will defend the ball screen and how to beat it.

Coach Smart breaks down some of the most important aspects of using ball screens: spacing, timing and screening angles. He demonstrates a variety of screening angles, and he highlights spots on the floor that are most effective for using ball screens. He then shows seven ball screen reads that players must know in order to make good choices within the offense.

A unique aspect of this video is the "Endings." These side ball screens create movement to help players get in the proper positions to create the best scoring opportunities using the ball screen. This allows you to counter defensive strategies and exploit weaknesses from the same basic ball screen. Coach Smart ends the presentation with a five minute Q&A session to address most common questions.

Add another dimension to your half court offense by incorporating part of Shaka Smart's ball screen offense into your system.
