Attack and React Offense by Vic Schaefer

with Vic Schaefer,
Mississippi State University Head Women's Coach;
2017 NCAA Championship Runner-Up;
2017 ESPY Award - 'Best Upset';
2x SEC Coach of the Year (2018, 2015);

In 2017, Vic Schaefer guided his team to a stunning upset of top-ranked Connecticut and ended their consecutive winning streak at 111 games. They did so with a great defensive effort, but more importantly with offensive precision and execution.

Schaefer opens his offensive playbook and demonstrates the offensive efficiency. He provides every possible offensive situation you need to take your team to the next level. Whether it's set plays, zone plays, BLOBS and SLOBS, continuity offense, or installing a new offense with the dribble drive, there is something on this video for any coach!

Dribble Drive Offense

Everything in Coach Schaefer's offense starts with getting to the nail as an attacker and creating open spaces for teammates to drive. As he puts it, the first driver will create double, triple or super gaps for their teammates by getting to the nail and hitting the next cutter/driver. If your opponent likes to switch, there's a counter for that. If you want to get creative, Schaefer demonstrates screening actions using an elevator screen and a shuffle cut/screen to create more scoring opportunities and space for your players to attack.

Sets

You have to be prepared for anything your opponent does to stop your attacking offense. Having sets in place that will lead into your offense is a great way to counter any defense.

Schaefer details three sets he has used to get his team easy buckets and have multiple scoring options. In order to best disguise his sets and keep opponents on their toes, all sets are run out of a box. If you need to get a shooter a look, he uses elevator action leading into a pick & roll option in case the defense is able to get through screens. In the 2 Down series, he uses high-low looks to space the floor and create scoring opportunities for posts and shooters.

Circle Motion

Having a continuity offense in place allows you to utilize many of your players. Players are able to own their role and read the defense. Schaefer uses a box set to continue disguising his actions and uses pin downs and shuffle cuts to keep the offense from getting stagnant. Off of a shuffle cut, he finishes the continuity with a pick-the-picker action for a knock-down shooter.

BLOB and SLOB

Scoring off of special situations can lead to easy buckets and an advantage over any opponent. With SLOBs and BLOBs, Schaefer uses a variety of scoring options, including pick & roll with your best attacker, refusing the screen, using the screen for an open jumper, and slipping screens to create open shots for a post with some range. In 3 series, Schaefer demonstrates all of these actions and throws in an elevator screen against a zone defense for a must-have 3-pointer.

Shooting Drills

Coach Schaefer demonstrates a variety of shooting drills his team uses to rep game shots in game spots. Most drills are done in the half court with some utilized in full court settings. In 3-on-3-on-3 shooting, players work on rhythm shooting in transition as they sprint the floor hunting their shot. Your athletes will work on their finishes around the rim so they know how to react to any help side defense sliding over.

No matter what level of coaching you're at, this video is a valuable tool! It breaks down drills that apply to all age groups and teams. Coach Schaefer stresses the importance of fundamentals at every level and how they are truly the key to success. Put your team in a position to win every game!

40 Minutes Baseline-to-Baseline Defense by Vic Schaefer

Mississippi State University Head Women's Coach;

2x SEC Coach of the Year (2018, 2015);

Vic Schaefer has transformed the Mississippi State basketball program. His success is in great part due to the intense defensive pressure his players put on their opponents.

In this video, Schaefer goes in-depth on how he has been able to get his players to consistently execute their defensive principles, as well as play with the type of intensity necessary to compete at the highest levels.

Three different teaching methods are used throughout the video. Coach Schaefer uses whiteboard discussions to show basics surrounding his defense. He teaches with a team other than his own on the court, and also teaches from one of his own, live practices. Each session is as valuable as the next in learning how Schaefer instructs and instills the concepts of his defense.

Daily Defensive Drills

These "Daily Defensive Drills" are included in each of Coach Schaefer's practices throughout the season. Each drill is a foundational element of the defensive concepts he needs his players to apply. The drills include:

    Defensing the Floor - This 1-on-1 full court drill is a great way to get your team down in a stance and ready to defend the ball.Mirror Drill - This is a sprinting drill that forces the defender to get past the person with the ball and re-initiate on-ball defense.Shell Drill - While almost all coaches have a form of Shell Drill, Schaefer's has attention to detail and variety. This is not just your regular Shell Drill!

Key Defensive Concepts

Some key components to Coach Schaefer's defense are:

  • Hard denials one pass away.
  • Great ball pressure.
  • Keeping the ball on one side of the court.
  • Moving on the pass.

Coach Schaefer addresses these concepts throughout the video. Each defensive idea is taught completely and also repeated on the floor in a live action setting. Much of the drill work that is done is in a 2-on-2, 3-on-3 or 4-on-4 format. This competitive setting keeps the players engaged throughout.

Zone and Press Defense

Schaefer includes two other defenses that his team uses. First, he introduces his 15 defense, which is a 1-2-2 zone. With this, he breaks down each player's responsibility and shows how the defense almost morphs into a 2-3 zone. Next, Schaefer spends some time working on and teaching his full court run and jump press. This high-paced pressure defense can cause havoc on the court.

Other concepts covered include defending down screens, ball screen defense, jumping to the ball and avoiding getting your face crossed, and defensive rebounding.

There are also two rebounding drills/competitions included in this video. Each emphasizes the importance of blocking out and moving feet to hold the block out. These competitive drills work on the fundamentals of rebounding while also allowing players to get after it in a game-like situation.

This video is loaded with a full complement of defensive strategies and drills to help you and your team put together an entire defensive scheme. If you want to change the way your team plays defense, if you want to play with the type of intensity that is necessary to achieve greater goals, then the lessons in this video are exactly what you need.

In this on-court presentation, NBA head coach Dwane Casey teaches you over 10 set plays from various inbound positions that have multiple options/counters to get a quick 2- or 3-pointer out of a timeout when the game is on the line.

You will learn the spacing and timing to spring your shooters for quality looks, with multiple options when well-guarded. You'll get a strong understanding of Coach Casey's scoring strategies by watching players execute plays from out of bounds on the sideline and endline, on both sides of the floor, with and without defense

Sideline Out-of-Bounds Plays

To make sure the sideline plays work, Casey demonstrates tips and strategies to force the inbounder to pass with their weak hand and how to use decoy players to draw attention away from your primary action.

You'll see five plays, each with multiple options. Coach Casey runs through scoring options for quick 3-pointers off cuts, down screens and flare screens, as well as options going to the basket. He details a Raptors play where they use a scissoring action off a screener at the nail with the point guard starting in the backcourt, where it can be inbounded, and serving as an outlet if needed.

Casey also demonstrates three sideline out-of-bounds plays using back screens that can be used to catch a lob at the basket or to catch and shoot a 3-pointer when there is less than a second left on the clock.

Endline Out-of-Bounds Plays

After showing a set up to quickly break a press when there are no timeouts left, Casey demonstrates five plays from the baseline when there is a short clock. He shows the sequence of reads for most positions to get behind the line to shoot a 3-pointer, using clean up (pick the picker) actions and flare screens.

He also demonstrates two plays with the posts at the elbows, with some quick actions to get them the ball diving to the basket if there is less than a second left on the clock.

Additionally, Coach Casey provides great detail on timing, angles of screens, counters and footwork, which help execute the plays successfully.

This video is a 'must-have' for coaches who need simple but effective actions to score from a dead ball when the pressure is highest. With Coach Casey leading the players through the plays, with and without defense, you will clearly see all the options for getting your team the best possible scoring opportunity in these special situations.

You will learn Coach Casey's strategies for keeping the ball out of the paint, as well as how to communicate coverages.

Individual Defense Drills

No detail in your on-ball defensive fundamentals can be taken for granted when you are challenged with keeping the most elite scorers on the planet in front of you on a nightly basis. Coach Casey demonstrates three closeout drills with five variations that will help your players master their closeout technique through multiple progressions. These drills will teach players how to take a "no-middle" defensive stance on the wing using the run off & recover tactic to deny a great shooter their scoring opportunities, as well as rotating with the X call to cover shooters in dribble penetration scenarios.

The next few drills build on the closeout techniques to incorporate guarding the ball off the dribble, challenging the shot without fouling, and boxing out effectively to prevent offensive rebounds. The Mine Drill will develop a mentality with your team to never give up on a play by forcing defenders to scramble in a 4-on-3 disadvantage situation.

Team Defense Drills

Learn the tenets to the Toronto Raptors' defensive philosophy regarding on-ball screening actions. The 3-Line Closeout drill simulates the Blue technique versus side ball screens and Weak technique versus high ball screens in a single possession. Coach Casey breaks down the details to both coverages, such as the terminology the Raptors use to communicate, hand positioning to deter passes out of the pick & roll, and how far the post should extend to help on the screen. A variation to this drill shows how you can switch with your post players using the Pull It strategy.

Two additional drills teach players to fight through dribble hand-offs, how to use the Blue technique on pinch post action, and defeating wide pin-downs.Three more drills cover a variety of offensive and defensive concepts. See how the Toronto Raptors get loose at the start of all their practices throughout the season with the Five Man Weave drill. The 2-on-1 Finishing Drill serves a dual purpose in teaching offensive players how to score at the rim while also helping your defensive players learn how to protect the basket.

All coaches have an interest in teaching fundamental defensive skills to their team. In this video, Coach Casey draws on his expertise at the top level to present a number of simple, but powerful drills to develop defensive habits and schemes that you can use in your practices every day.
