Long-time West Virginia head coach Bob Huggins has created an offense that is very hard to guard using one of the latest trends in today's game: a positionless, open post attack. His teams use a ton of cutting, filling, and ball reversals to pick apart defenses through constant ball movement.
In this video, you'll get the opportunity to see how Coach Huggins adds various actions to his motion offense to turn his team into a high-powered scoring machine.
Motion Offense Fundamentals
Before adding any actions, first you must come to understand the 5-out motion offense and be able to teach your players how to properly space, cut, and fill within it. Huggins demonstrates how to teach athletes proper spacing along with how to utilize the floor to creating ideal scoring opportunities.
Actions to Score
Next, Huggins installs some of his favorite motion offense strategies. You'll see how players can use a traditional pass and cut action into a screen away to put the offense into position to curl to the basket or slip the screen if overplayed. With a flex cut, Coach Huggins uses a ball reversal and screen away to create backside action as the ball is reversed. Before filling out, players look to step off the lane line and set the flex screen, creating an open layup concept.
If you're looking for a little continuity, then adding T-Game or Triangle to your 5-out offense is exactly what you need. Huggins demonstrates how you can use a flex cut to get into a triangle on the opposite side of the floor. Through this set up, you can use cross screens and down screens to create scoring opportunities.
If ball reversal action isn't open, then use a dribble hand-off to drive to the rim or get the ball reversed so your team can continue with its offense. Huggins even shows you how to install a flare screen to use off of the dribble hand-off option if the defense continues to deny the ball reversal.
Ball Reversals and Post Feeds
To make the offense complete, Coach Huggins demonstrates how to incorporate your post players within the 5-out motion offense as they cut and hold in the paint before filling to the perimeter. You can also use a guard to post up. By using these scoring actions, you will be able to look to reverse the ball and get a post feed at any point in time.
Using today's hottest offense, the 5-out motion, you can create an attack that is efficient and able to score off of multiple actions. Allow Coach Huggins to help you make your offense unguardable and unscoutable when going against any defense!
