Nowadays, basketball teams design their offense around the 3-point shot. If your team isn't playing with pace and space, you're probably falling behind!

In this video, Marquette University head coach Steve Wojciechowski shows you how he uses the 3-point shot in his "Warriors Game" offense to create the pace and space needed to put up lots of points. You'll get three drills - the Steph Curry, Magic 10, and Ray Allen drills - that emphasize the 3-point shot. Additionally, you'll see how to develop fundamentals, systems and breakdown drills in your offense.

Creating a Year-Long Shooting Program

Coach Wojciechowski shares how he gets his players to shoot 1,500 game shots a week in the off-season. He teaches how the Steph Curry Drill gives athletes game-like 3-point shots in three-minute intervals, the Magic 10 Drill gets players to make consecutive shots before moving on, and the Ray Allen Drill helps players work on their footwork while on the move.

You'll also learn how to create your own shooting drills that give players many quality reps without taking too much time.

Offensive Fundamentals and Systems

Wojciechowski explains how to create and develop offensive systems and fundamentals that best utilize your team's personnel. You'll see how to get your players the highest percentage shot possible and how to get your best players to take the most shots.

Additionally, Coach Wojciechowski shows how to utilize spacing in your offense and how to teach fundamentals such as catching and facing the basket.

Warriors Game

Marquette's pace and space 3-point oriented offense is called "Warriors Game." This style of offense uses all five players and aims to get a 3-point shot, a lay-up or a foul shot on every possession. You'll see how to:

  • Use the double drag in your offense
  • Use a ball reversal to a through cut
  • Use a ball reversal to an exchange action
  • Use a ball reversal to a chase ball screen

Coach Wojciechowski gives you the tools to play in today's evolving pace and space style game. This video is a must-have for coaches who want to use the 3-point shot to their advantage.

Cover: winning the 'games within the game': special situations & shooting drills
Winning the 'Games Within the Game': Special Situations & Shooting Drills

with Joe Wootten,
Bishop O'Connell (VA) HS Head Boys Coach;
over 400 career victories;
5x Virginia State Independent Champions;
4x Alhambra Catholic Invitational Tournament Champions - including Back-to-Back-to-Back titles (2002-04);
3x WCAC Regular Season Champions;
3x Virginia State Independent Coach of the Year;
Director of Coach Wootten's Basketball Camp

Joe Wootten helps you master the art of attention to detail in this smorgasbord of ways to win special situations. Wootten dives deep into the "games within the game" and little areas you can focus on to steal a few extra wins on your schedule.

From inbound sets on the baseline and sideline that give you multiple scoring options and an easy outlet, to simple ways to teach players how to remember time and score, Coach Wootten details many scenarios that can be the difference between a win and a loss.

Shooting Drills

Wootten gives you nine shooting drills that he uses daily in practice to help build the confidence of his players. Through repetition and competitive games, your players will learn to develop their footwork. You'll see how to develop proper technique for shooting floaters, how to get deep in the lane and fake out defenders and how to knock down runners when defenders are looking to take a charge.

Inbound Sets

From a 1-4 set, Wootten demonstrates the "Vandy" series, which allows you to use down screens, double stagger screens, and back screens to get your best shooters open and a post player open for an inside touch. Having the ability to score or get the ball into your offense from a deep corner sideline inbound set is a key element in an offensive arsenal. Using an offset setup, your players will be able to score easily off of a back screen or misdirection lob pass.

Half Court Defense

There always seems to be one opponent on your schedule that forces you to stay on your toes when you play them. Knowing how to beat a half court trap or junk defense is a must for any legitimate basketball coach.

Coach Wootten shows how to use his "4 to Score" half court offense and beat any junk defense a team has in their bag of tricks. Treating a box-and-one or half court trap like a zone is the first step to outsmarting your opponent. You'll learn how to get your players to create misdirection and extend a zone, leaving the weak side open for an easy fast break opportunity.

Time and Score

In the last element of this video, Wootten describes how he teaches his athletes the importance of knowing when to foul, when to force a drive, and how to beat a full court defense when you're looking to keep the ball out of your opponent's hands. Through the use of a color coding system, he is able to walk his players through every situation and make sure they are comfortable handling pressure or playing from behind.

Coach Wootten is an excellent teacher of the game. His players are consistently ready for any situation they come across. This video will help you prepare your players for the upcoming season and steal a few extra wins by winning 'the games within the game.'

Cover: building the mayhem full court trapping defense
Building the Mayhem Full Court Trapping Defense

with Jamion Christian,
Siena College Head Coach;
former Mt. St. Mary's Head Coach;
2017 Ben Jobe Coach of the Year;
2017 Northeast Conference Coach of the Year;
2017 NEC Champions - 2x NEC Champions (2014, 2017)

Jamion Christian's teams have had a lot of success creating a "Mayhem" style of play through full court, pressure man-to-man defense. His former Mount St. Mary's squads consistently ranked among the top five teams in the country for forcing turnovers by making their opponents play at an uncomfortable pace.

In this video, you'll get a complete breakdown of each player's role within Coach Christian's "Mayhem" style of play, along with a teaching progression for the defense and plenty of drills to teach players how to be aggressive

Concepts and Roles

From the start, players must understand the small details and techniques needed to create an advantage. Christian begins his on-court demonstration with a breakdown of roles within the "Mayhem" defense. By pressuring a team for 40 minutes, you can force your opponents to become fatigued and turn the tables into your favor by creating turnovers in the open court.

You'll see how players need to sprint from one spot in a trap to the next in diagonal bursts, causing constant ball pressure. One by one, Coach Christian adds defenders. Players will take their time walking through how to force opponents out of the middle of floor or recover to the middle of the floor out of the trap. Weak side or strong side, Christian demonstrates how you can keep the pressure on your opponent and avoid giving up layups in return.

Drills

With every layer installed in the "Mayhem" defense, you'll get the opportunity to fine-tune your players' misconceptions. Christian uses his Wolf Drills to teach players how to chase down a ball handler and not get into foul trouble by going after and knocking the ball out of their hands. Players must be comfortable sprinting from one end or one side of the floor to the other.

In the Recovery Drill, the second line of defense is added and chasers must force the ball handler to the interceptor, creating another possible trap and turnover situation.

Breakdown

Beginning with a trapping situation in 2v3 full court, players will learn the finer points of trapping - locking hands and being elastic with their feet and bodies. Only a perfect pass will be allowed out of the trap. Christian continuously adds players to build up the defense until you can play 5v5. By keeping your trapping and build-up segments short, players learn to become efficient at trapping and you can emphasize the details athletes will need to be successful.

This is an excellent video for coaches looking for an effective, uncomplicated defense that provides consistently positive results!

Full Court Plays and Sideline Out-of-Bounds Sets

In today's game, coaches have to be prepared to run full court offense. Whether playing against a pressing team or just needing to go the length of the floor for a bucket, you have to be prepared to put the ball in the right player's hands at the right time.

This video featuring Siena College head coach Jamion Christian shows excellent sets, drills, and teaching concepts that will help your team become unstoppable late in games.

Full Court Sets

Coach Christian begins by talking about why it's necessary to invest time in these type of plays. One of the important pieces he addresses is who should be the inbounder. This player must be your best decision maker late in games because they have to know their job and the job of those on the court. Christian's attention to detail is one of the keys behind his teams being successful late in games.

Next, three full court sets are demonstrated that have helped Christian put his team in position to win games. In Pistol, your best free throw shooter must have the ball in their hands and be able to push the ball quickly into the front court. In Clemson, your best free throw shooters are put into spots where they can easily get the ball going downhill to attack the basket quickly. In LIU, you can utilize your best free throw shooters as passers so they can get the ball quickly to your point guard, who can push the ball into the paint.

Set Press O

Having a set offense that looks to attack both man and zone presses gives your players a huge advantage. Christian shares why setting your best ball handler away from the basket and bringing them back to the ball helps create speed for your ball handler attacking the paint. You'll also see how using your post to set a flat screen will keep the defense on their heels and create a mismatch if teams switch the screen.

Sideline Out of Bounds

If the ball is on the sideline in the back court, you have to be prepared to deliver a play that gets a great look at the basket. Christian demonstrates three sets that you can run out of different angles and set up on the floor. If you're in the front court, using a flare screen to get your best shooter an open look is a great action, especially after ball fakes and post back screening action.

You'll come away from this video with new full and half court sets that you can teach to your team today!

Progression Drills for Ball Screens and Utilizing the Pick & Roll

with Jamion Christian,
Siena College Head Coach;
former Mt. St. Mary's Head Coach;

2017 NEC Champions - 2x NEC Champions (2014, 2017)

Ball screen offense has been evolving every year and recently it's been utilized more in offensive game plans that spread the floor. If you have an outstanding group of guards that can attack the glass, then the use of ball screens can be one of the focal points of your offense.

Up-and-coming coach Jamion Christian has a track record of developing smart guards with a good basketball IQ. In this video, you will get a look at how he develops his players' vision and basketball IQ coming off of ball screens.

Ball Screen Progression

Guards must be able to pass the ball effectively in tight spaces and see the open player coming off of a ball screen. Teaching them to have their eyes on the paint helps perimeter players see the screen develop better.

Starting with simple early passing entries, Christian shows how to help players learn to get tight to the screen and look to hit the post player. From a bounce pass in the post to an overhead pass, guards learn to read the help side defender along with the post defense to take advantage of a mismatch. Making the right read will allow your guard to find the post player for a shot, attack the basket themselves or find a shooter for an open 3-pointer.

Twirl

A perimeter player is only as good as their basketball IQ. Guards must be put into game-like situations in the half court in order to practice their skills and passing progression.

In Twirl, point guards and combo guards will learn how to come off of a high ball screen, flat ball screen, or step up ball screen and create scoring opportunities for a post seal or skip to an open shooter.

This is a fantastic video for any coach that is looking to build their ball screen knowledge and help their players use the ball screen more effectively!
