Legendary head coach Bill Self provides an extensive look into the Kansas offensive system. Coach Self uses an early practice session to guide you step-by-step through a complex half-court offense. Whiteboard diagrams that provide a detailed look at each action within the offense enhance his explanations.

Kansas plays a free-flowing, organized offense that starts with a rebound at the defensive end and attacks in multiple waves. The primary transition leads into a secondary transition that leads into multiple scenarios with the same starting set-up. Coach Self explains the strategy of each segment on a whiteboard, step-by-step, before moving to the practice floor, where the Jayhawks work extensively on offensive strategies.

Coach Self demonstrates the basic rules each player needs to follow to keep the offense flowing. He covers his team's two-game entry, maximizing high- and low-post options within their offense. He transitions smoothly into their ball screen fist offense, utilizing driving lanes and paint touches creating a balanced offense.

Coach Self completes this basic Kansas offensive package by demonstrating his transition offense and all of the scoring options available in the half court. He uses whiteboard diagrams to progressively build each layer of the team's secondary break. He also offers two baseline out-of-bounds plays that can be used against a man or zone defense for an easy lay-up.

This is a must-have video for any coach who needs a fresh and effective offensive system. Because it features eight players new to the Kansas offense, you get a great look at how to teach and implement these strategies into your program. You'll learn the challenges of implementing the Kansas offense as well as techniques for overcoming them.

With Bill Self's Kansas offense, your team will be in constant attack mode, leaving your opponents scrambling the entire possession.

Strengthen your playbook with proven strategies from legendary University of Kansas Head Coach Bill Self. Coach Self shares two zone offenses that create scoring opportunities along with several counters that will make your offense unstoppable. With the primary goal of forcing four defenders to play just three offensive players, his zone offenses create confusion, scrambles and open shots that devastate opposing teams.

In his "stationary" strategy, Coach Self uses a quick moving zone offense to create scoring opportunities in the post, utilizing the short corner to stretch the defense. Players find gaps within the defense allowing them to score around the rim or take a quick striking three-point shot. Also in this segment, Coach Self introduces the "hot potato" concept to demonstrate how to move the ball quickly against a 2-3 zone.

The more intricate, equally effective "slash" strategy is Coach Self's answer to the 3-2 and the 1-3-1 zone defense. In the "slash," Coach Self uses three cutters to fill four open spots along the perimeter. Primary and secondary cutters are used through the lane to create an element of surprise. Coach Self uses 5v5 demonstrations to teach his young team how to expose the weaknesses of a 2-3 zone.

Coach Self completes this package by demonstrating the Kansas press offense, which any team can use against a zone press. Your team will dissect your opponent's pressure defense by t
