Dear Coaches, Players, Friends,

Today's Quote:

"What you are as a person is far more important than what you are as a basketball player." - John Wooden

Today's Theme - "2-3 High Offenses"

Today we'll list several offenses that employ a high 2-3 set.

Michigan-Style 2-Guard Offense
After Michigan Head Coach John Beilein's 2-guard offense, this page details the three sets ("chin", "motion" and "shuffle"), and shows how they easily flow into one another. This offense is a read and react, perimeter-based, patterned offense that also allows for free-lance motion.

2-3 High Patterned Offense
Run this offense against teams that are bigger, taller inside as this offense takes the opponent's big defenders outside, away from the basket, and allows us to attack them with our speed and quickness. This is a man-to-man offense and looks a little like the Princeton with the 2-3 high set, but instead is a patterned offense with continuity.

2-3 Man Offense
Consider this offense if you have two or three strong inside post players, or if you do not have great outside shooters, or if you are not blessed with a great point guard. This offense is designed to be a deliberate, tempo-control offense that looks to get high-percentage inside shots.

Pete Carril's Princeton Offense
And let's not forget the Princeton offense. The Princeton offense is a two-guard offense that doesn't require having a superstar point-guard. But to effectively execute the Princeton offense, all five players must be skilled at dribbling, passing, shooting from outside, or be able to post up inside.
