Basketball Play - Zone Offense Concepts | Loop MIX

Zone Offense Concepts | Loop MIX

Randy Sherman 02/07/2022

Usuing the dribble against the zone Players can use the dribble against zone to manipulate pieces of the zone and apply misdirection. One of the #ZoneOffenseTips I like is the LOOP. In a loop, a player on the wing dribbles at the player on the point sending that player on the LOOP cut (Player 1). The zone would react to the dribble by moving in that direction. Then Player 2 throws back against the grain of that dribble. Misdirection = MIX See More

Basketball Play - Florida Gators | Five-Out Offense - Reverse Option

Florida Gators | Five-Out Offense - Reverse Option

Randy Sherman 12/07/2021

Here are some basic options used by the Florida Gators in their Five-Out Offense. First the REVERSE option where the Gators pass side-top-side then screen away. This unlocks curls, rejects and pop backs and links to some Princeton Offense concepts. A few years ago, I diagrammed this idea of taking some Motion Strong concepts and linking them with Point Series from the Princeton Offense. You can check out that playbook here. See More

Basketball Play - Swing - Meet Up - Reject

Swing - Meet Up - Reject

Randy Sherman 06/09/2021

An excerpt from our new Five-Out Package Playbook In this sequence, the opening is the SWING to Player 5. The passer then gets into a MEET UP with Player 2. Player 5 takes the ball to the action with the dribble. In this diagram, Player 2 REJECTS the MEET UP and the action flows into either a pass-and-follow DRAG ball screen or a FLIP (dribble handoff). From there the offense is into EURO. Frames 5 and 6 show how we can SWING and get into a MEET UP on the second side. See More

Basketball Play - Drill: 4v0 Pass, Cut, Fill

Drill: 4v0 Pass, Cut, Fill

Randy Sherman 12/04/2020

Excerpt from our latest playbook entitled "Four-Out Motion Offense: Teaching Through Drills" This drill introduces the basic movements of a basic version of four-out motion offense and the frame descriptions give lots of teaching points you can use to polish up many things you are probably already teaching. The concepts also govern 4v4 play and getting to 4v4 play ASAP is the goal. Further reading: #MotionOffenseTips: Fill Cutting 101 #MotionOffenseTips on Twitter!
