Dear Coaches, Players, Friends,

Today's Quotes:

"The best things in life aren’t things." - Art Buchwald

"You only live once - but if you work it right, once is enough." - Joe E. Lewis

Today's Theme - Box Offense

The Box set has been around for a long time and has been used at every level - professional and collegiate levels, as well as at the high school, middle school and youth levels.  The Box-set is very adaptable to almost any offense.  It starts with the two wing (perimeter) players O2 and O3 starting on the low blocks, and the post players O4 and O5 starting at the elbows, with O1 on the top.  From this box-set you can run numerous set plays, or easily flow into the horns set, or the 1-4 high, 1-2-2, or 3-out 2-in sets.

Here are some helpful articles full of plays that use the box set.

Box-Set Offense - Plays for your Shooters

Get open shots for your best shooters.

Box-set Offense - Post Plays

Get the ball in the post.

Box-Set Offense - Pick and Roll Plays
Hard to defend pick and roll plays.

Box-Set Offense - Isolation/Backdoor Plays
The back-door plays are designed for attacking pressure, over-playing denial defenses with a back-door cut and lay-up. The ISO plays give your great 1-on-1 player opportunities for attacking his/her defender 1-on-1.
