20 Quick Hitters for Scoring Against Man or Zone

As the head coach of the women's basketball team at the University of Louisville, Jeff Walz has built one of the best programs in women's college basketball that rivals their men's basketball counterparts.  Twice, the Louisville Cardinals have been the runners-up in the NCAA tournament and most of it is as a result of his team's execution of quick hitting plays.

Coach Walz shows his quick hitters from three situations: zone, man-to-man, and end-of-clock situations.  Also included are full-court quick hitters designed to get that last-second desperation shot that can send the game into overtime or get that big-time win when all is seemingly lost.

This week's featured basketball coaching DVD is Brad Underwood of Stephen F. Austin University.  Coach Underwood is a rising star in the coaching ranks after having led Stephen F. Austin to the third round of the 2014 NCAA Tournament on the strength of an overtime win over VCU.  Coach Underwood played at Kansas State for the legendary Jack Hartman and coached as an assistant coach under Bob Huggins and Frank Martin at Kansas State and South Carolina before taking the job at Stephen F. Austin.

Spread Offense

Having coached under Bob Huggins and Frank Martin as well as having played for Jack Hartman, Coach Brad Underwood takes you inside Stephen F. Austin's offense based in large part on the spread offenses that are on the scene in college football.  A scheme that is presented as "position-less" is designed with cutting, spacing, and passing to get high percentage shots for your team.

Starting with player positioning, Coach Underwood then adds the entries available and how to move once each entry is made to initiate the offense.  A number of basket cuts are made within the framework of the offense which puts constant pressure on the defense.  There are also counters to the various adjustments made by the defense to make the offense seemingly unstoppable.

Demonstrated in the DVD are 2-, 3-, and 4-player drills designed to teach fundamentals and the offense itself.  Great detail is given to each coaching point as it helps build the offense from scratch.

Filmed over a series of clinics and practice from 2005 to 2008, Duke University head coach Mike Krzyzewski takes you inside basketball at Duke.  Coach K and his staff take you through a variety of drills designed for his team's practices, skill development of players, improving the shooting skills of his players, and an inside look at Duke's offense.

Open Practice: Offensive Skill Development

Shooting, passing, dribbling, and player movement are all critical parts of any offense.  Duke's men's basketball team has been one of the best in developing perimeter and post players to play at the college level.  Drills to develop individual offensive skills are presented by Coach K and former Duke assistant coaches Chris Collins (current Northwestern head coach) and Steve Wojciechowski (current Marquette head coach).

Open Practice: Defensive Skill Development

A major point of emphasis for Duke University under Mike Krzyzewski has been their man-to-man defense.  This DVD presentation shows the basic fundamentals required to successfully defend from footwork to developing the proper stance.  Several build-up drills for the defense are also demonstrated starting with 1-on-1 drills and progressing to 2-on-2 and 3-on-3 drills before going to full team drills for man-to-man defense.  Also presenting in this DVD are former Duke assistant coaches Chris Collins (current Northwestern head coach) and Steve Wojciechowski (current Marquette head coach).

BasketballCoach.com Presents: 50 Set Plays for Attacking Man-to-Man Defense

Championship Productions in association with BasketballCoach.com has put together what every coach looks for at every turn: plays.  Eleven of the very best coaches have had some of their best plays put together on one DVD.

Each of the descriptions were taken from the Championship Productions webpage that promotes the DVD/Download of the product being featured.

Mike Krzyzewski

Duke coaches Chris Collins and Mike Krzyzewski demonstrate the Elbow Series, complete with Elbow Weak, Elbow Up, and Elbow Get. Each space the floor for several 3-point shooters while freeing the rim from defensive protection.

Fred Hoiberg

Iowa State Head Coach Fred Hoiberg shares his 50 Pistol, 50 Dive Stick, and 50 Dive Special from a free-flowing, 5-out offensive formation. Utilizing dribble hand-offs and misdirection, these plays create multiple scoring options at the rim and from the 3-point range. Hoiberg also offers his Horns Handoff Burn, High Stacks Pacer, L, Owl, and High plays, giving you a variety of plays to create scoring opportunities from all areas of the court.

Tom Izzo

Michigan State Head Coach Tom Izzo offers his Chest, Chest Down, Thumb Down, Horns, and I plays. Each has sharp cuts, quick ball movement and misdirection to help your players score at the rim or complete a weak side shot attempt.

Larry Brown

Former NBA and current SMU Head Coach Larry Brown has his team run through Split, Horns, and Horns Shake to get his post players moving quickly from screen-and-roll perimeter action into low-block scoring position. See how your posts can take advantage of the defenders surrounding the action around the ball.

Gregg Marshall

Wichita State's Gregg Marshall pushes his team through 41 Iso, a play designed to use stagger screens to free up an open shooter if the initial baseline drive is cut off.

Greg McDermott

Creighton Head Coach Greg McDermott demonstrates a series of nine plays that start from the same formations; each has a counter that shows how a defense might play the various screening actions involved. Plays such as Blitz, Blitz 1 Down, and Blitz 1 Back take advantage of movement as a way to secure the post position for an easy score against an out-of-place defender.

Dave Paulsen

Bucknell Head Coach Dave Paulsen shares his V-Entry and Rip, which help create shots for players who may not be able to do so on their own. 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

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

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

Hall of Famer and former Tennessee Head Coach Pat Summitt, puts her team through Spin, Horns, and Horns 2, a series of plays designed to get the ball inside for a layup. Using block-to-block screens, duck-ins, or screen and rolls, she shows how to get the ball into the post off of a cut triggered by movement on the perimeter.

Bill Self

Kansas Head Coach Bill Self shares two key plays, Regular and Pitch Ahead, which are both designed to get the ball inside where he knows he'll have a size advantage. Stagger screens and ball reversals ultimately end with a high low setup with the low post having inside scoring position on an over-matched defender.

Coaching Middle School Basketball: The Wheel Offense

At the youth level, coaches have a hard time teaching their players to attack a zone defense.  Coach Nick Cammarano utilizes a version of the Wheel Offense to attack zone defenses that he has used as a youth coach over the last 15 years.  Using on-court demonstrations and diagrams, Coach Cammarano takes you through a zone offense that allows for his teams to take advantage of the weaknesses of any zone as well as the breakdown drills necessary to teach the offense.  He finishes with 5-on-5 play to show where the gaps are in the zones and how his Wheel Offense exploits them.

For his pressure defense (that keys his fast break), Coach Anderson takes you through possible trapping opportunities and a pressure half-court man-to-man defense that is broken down and taught to speed up tempo and create fast breaks.  He also uses conditioning drills to get the players into condition to play fast basketball for 40 minutes without wearing down while exhausting their opponents.

Finally, a four-on-four shell drill is demonstrated to show how the defense communicates and pressures the offense out of their comfort zone.  The half court defense that is taught is designed to never give the other team a break from the pressure.
