Dr. Dish drills for Michigan’s 2-Guard Offense

The versatility of the Michigan 2-Guard offense was on full display during the Big 10 and NCAA tournaments as the Wolverines made a march to the Sweet 16. The offense features numerous scoring options, and creates mismatches on both sides of the floor. These drills are designed as a basis for getting the most reps possible from your Dr. Dish to drill the scoring options from the Michigan 2-Guard offense. As always, when using the Dr. Dish, use drills that are tailored to your offensive actions – confidence comes from competence!


2 Player Breakdown – Pindown Action

At the heart of Michigan’s 2-Guard Offense is great spacing, quick reversals, and strong pindown screens into wing 3 point shots.

Pinch Post Breakdown

One of the most difficult to guard actions out of Michigan’s offense is the use of the pinch post. Within the offense, 5 may set a backscreen for a guard and then receive a pass at the high post. Michigan then runs guards off the pinch post, looking for handoff and reversal to a shooter receiving a pindown screen.

This action is easily simulated in a drill using Dr. Dish.
