If you are a ball screen team, this video is a must!!
UT-Arlington head coach, Scott Cross, brings you a detailed guide to ball screen offense and defense. Coach Cross outlines the techniques your team will need to be successful using a ball screen offense by getting post touches, working to create space, and taking advantage of shoulder-to-shoulder action off of pick and roll set.
Coach Cross maximizes his practice sessions by working on defending every possible ball screen action that can be used by your opponent. Cross takes you through a variety of build-up drills that demonstrate how to implement the actions within a ball screen offense.
In a 4-on-4 setting, Coach Cross demonstrates a competitive drill to teach proper screening techniques and spacing while learning how to defend a stagger action, cross screen action, down screen action, and a combination of a cross screen and down screen action.
Cross shows you the break down drills they use every day in practice to ensure success on the defensive end of the floor.
This is a great video for coaches at any level looking to incorporate more ball screen action within their offense and, at the same time, teach players how to defend ball screens.
