Hall of Fame coach Bill Self has been able to develop elite offenses through multiple styles of play over the course of his career. In this video, you will see how Self's Kansas Jayhawks have combined their 2-Game and 4-Game attacks to form one of the top offensive teams in the country. Coach Self provides you a glimpse into the full offensive package of the Jayhawks and also introduces you to his transition attack, numerous set plays, press break strategies, and two offenses to dismantle zone defenses.
Skills and Offensive Approach
Watch the Jayhawks start their practice with a brief segment of position-specific skill development. Coach Self describes the skill set he wants in his post players and demonstrates how guards can get open on the court with a 2-on-2 breakdown drill that has them working screening actions on the two-side of his motion offense.
Learn how to flow directly into your half-court offense with quick-hitting actions in transition. You'll see Self break down his full court attack so you can easily see how to get immediate ball reversals through the use of dribble pitches. He also explains why he eschews a secondary break for a more streamlined approach into his offense.
You will learn how to continue attacking with a full court press break when the defense extends their pressure. Coach Self takes an interesting approach with this phase of his offense by teaching his players to play out of principles rather than run through a scripted sequence. Through the "7-on-5" drill, your players will be challenged far beyond the demands of a regular game to advance the ball versus a full court pressure defense.
Kansas places a huge emphasis in their half-court offense to play through their dominant big men. Coach Self explains, with on-court demonstration in addition to whiteboard diagrams, how the Jayhawks counter post traps to capitalize on these defensive overplays for easy scoring opportunities. You will also get an opportunity to see Kansas rehearsing over five of their quick-hitters into their offense through 5-on-5 practice segments.
Attacking Zones and Inbound Strategies
Learn how to adjust your zone offense to reflect a perimeter-oriented lineup with Coach Self's motion offense versus zone defenses. You will see how to flash guards into the high post while simultaneously stretching the floor with movement along the perimeter. The Jayhawks also demonstrate their "stationary" offense for teams that prefer a more traditional attack that utilizes two post players. This practice segment will also break down how to attack 3-2 zone defenses with motion and high ball screens to collapse the defense.
Self believes in winning the "games within a game" that can lead to a valuable edge against your toughest opponents. Learn how to manage your timeouts with the goal of winning 70% of your after-timeout situations throughout the game. You'll get a package of sideline inbound plays that can launch you directly into your half court offense.
No matter whether you coach a team with size or a team with speed, this video will have something beneficial for you. Coach Self is a master teacher and there's no doubt his instruction will improve your program.
