Dear Coaches, Players, Friends,

Today's Quote:

"A team should be an extension of a coach's personality. My teams are arrogant and obnoxious." - Al McGuire

"I don't discuss basketball. I dictate basketball. I'm not interested in philosophy classes." - Al McGuire

Today's Theme - New Offenses!

This email is intentionally short.  I just want to point your attention to two new offenses on the website, with links to those pages.

The Slice Motion Offense
This is a new man motion style, 4-out offense from Andrew Dodd.  It features some aspects of the dribble-drive offense, but also incorporates the pass and cut, screening, pick and roll, good high post actions, and a Princeton style backdoor cut.  Take a look!  An article on quick hitters will be coming soon as well.

Delta Zone Offense
Also from coach Andrew Dodd, this zone offense is very unique, probably unlike most zone offenses that you've seen, and is used more overseas and not so much in the USA.  It can be used against any zone defense.  Players are taught to understand how the zone works and how to read the defense... using "Box Theory" and attacking with the "Ballside Triangle".  Screening is important as most zones have problems defending screens.  Take a look!

From Spectator To Player

One other bonus article... this article from Anthony Lanzillo discusses how to take that bench player who is content to be a "spectator" and change him/her into a "player".
