#MotionOffenseTips Discussion VIDEO

By Randy Sherman

As a continuation of the motion offense series hosted on this site, we teamed up with Jason Wallen (@Coach_Wallen) the Head Girls Basketball Coach at Mesquite (TX) High School for an in depth discussion on motion offense.

Coach Wallen has a career record of 229-155. While at Nolan Catholic High School in Fort Worth, Texas his teams were state semifinalists in 2009 and state finalists in 2010. Wallen has also coached in the Nike EYBL Cy Fair Shock program who qualified for the semifinals of the Nike Nationals.

Below is an information-rich dialogue with thoughts on building and implementing a motion offense. We took questions from coaches across the United States on Twitter. Thanks to those who participated.

Topics include:

  • Defining motion offense and why one should consider running it
  • Away from the ball action
  • Shallow cuts and flare screens
  • Preferred drills and drill progressions
  • Using restrictions in practice to build offensive creativity
  • Much more!
