About This Play/Drill

Fred Hoiberg's name has come up in several off-season NBA Coaching openings, showing the amount of respect he has at the highest levels.


Hoiberg's experience in the NBA shows in the way Iowa State executes and runs their offensive sets. Everything is predicated on good spacing & player movement. Hoiberg gives his players the ability to create 1 v 1 situations and use their skills to breakdown the defense which in turn creates opportunities for everyone else on kick-out passes.


This very easy to run Diamond play can be run for any one of your players to create an isolation situation.
