Dear Coaches, Players, Friends,

Today's Quote:

"The shortest distance between two points is always under construction." - Noelie Alito

"Please all, and you will please none." (Aesop)

Today's Theme - "Ball-Screen (Pick and Roll) Offense"

The pick and roll (ball-screen) is one of the oldest plays in basketball, remains a very effective offensive weapon, and is being used more than ever. The pick-and-roll has become popular as a method for gaining dribble penetration and then drawing and kicking - either kicking in to a player near the basket or kicking out to a three-point shooter. At the professional level, the pick-and-roll has become a primary part of the offense for most teams. It has also become a part of college and high school play.  The following articles and DVDs will help you develop a pick and roll offense.
