Zone Sets

Plays YOU Can Use: Zone Sets

This past season, our team faced a zone defense over 70% of the time. This is a number that has been steadily increasing over the past few years. If you are concerned about guarding a team who runs terrific half court offense, a zone defense allows you to prepare for less actions. With more coaches...

Plays YOU Can Use - SLOBs

Plays YOU Can Use: SLOB Sets

This week’s “Plays YOU Can Use: SLOB Sets” will feature five plays, which offer multiple options. Before you begin picking your SLOB sets, here are a few things to consider: Do the sets that you pick offer a variety of options (interior touches, multiple screening actions, and 3-point options)? Do the sets that you pick...

Baseline Out of Bounds

Plays YOU Can Use: BLOB Series

The importance of baseline out of bounds possessions can’t be overstated. It is my belief that we can gain a 6-8 point edge during a game, by simply winning the BLOB situations.

Lob Sets

Plays YOU Can Use: Lob Sets

This week’s “Plays YOU Can Use” features lob sets. Lob sets are a tremendous way to spark your team, shift momentum, and get a pressure release from ultra-aggressive defensive teams. My pet peeve with lob sets are when they lack secondary options. If the lob option is not available, the action should always generate an advantageous situation...

Iverson Sets

Plays YOU Can Use: Iverson Sets

One of my favorite actions in basketball is the Iverson Cut. In our last few series, there have been plays, which include this action. I appreciate that the action is something that requires a team to specifically prepare to guard it. Even better, it is an action that allows for countless counters, so the defense will...

Pistol Action

The Pistol Action has become a popular action for teams to run in transition. Depending on the team that you are watching, you might see different versions of the Pistol Action. This past season, we initiated our Pistol Action with a dribble hand off. Below are some key teaching points, as you introduce Pistol Action....

Ball Screen Sets

Plays YOU Can Use: Ball Screen Sets

The ball screen is one of the most popular and most effective actions in basketball. From Stockton to Malone to the Spread Ball Screen Offense, screening for the ball-handler has been a staple of every coach’s playbook. This week, our Plays YOU Can Use series features 10 ball screen sets and counters that every coach should...

ElbowSeries

Plays YOU Can Use: Elbow Series

When building your playbook for next season, some things to consider: Do your sets have anything that make them easy to scout? Do they all start from different formations? Is it difficult to flow from the base offense into the sets? Do they all use the same action? Do the sets lack versatility? These are...
