Four-time WNBA Champion coach Cheryl Reeve has enjoyed an outstanding career and coached some of the best female basketball players in the world. Through her teaching style, she has created a dynamic offense that highlights the strengths of players such as Maya Moore and Seimone Augustus.
In this video, you'll get an inside look at how Coach Reeve uses her "Horns" and "Iverson" series to create multiple scoring opportunities for her players. Additionally, she shows how to read the defense so your athletes will be able to react and attack.
"It's not what you run, but rather how you run it" is a key element to Coach Reeve's offensive philosophy. Using the "Horns" setup, she breaks down several tweaks you can put into your offensive sets and shows how to teach players to read a defense.
In Horns Up, the point guard's ability to get into the paint determines the success of the play. As your point guard looks to attack off of a post ball screen, the opposite big looks to create a scoring advantage on the back side through pin downs and back screens. This play will only work by teaching your players proper screening angles and how to time the screening action just right.
For Horns Down, your players will learn to break down common screening defenses such as icing, switching and trapping to create multiple scoring options.
Reeve demonstrates how to use a pin down screen into a flare screen as you look to get your best shooter an open 3-pointer in Horns Shake and Cross. If the ball gets denied or a switch occurs, a post option is available off of a dribble hand-off and a cross screen as your best shooter creates false action.
Finally, in Reeve's favorite action, Horns Out, you can create different match-ups by placing a non-shooter in the corner and using an athletic wing to run the play and create a mismatch. This forces the defense to decide whether they should guard a post player that can hit a 12-footer, or cover up a knockdown 3-point shooter.
Rounding out Coach Reeve's favorite sets is the Iverson Series. In these sets, she demonstrates three different scoring chances with a lob pass, pin down and post option. By teaching your players to sprint, you can create false action on the back side of your set as the defense looks to defend a lob pass. With your best shooter coming off of a pin and your best post player looking to get a paint touch, you'll be sure to get any look you want!
Coach Reeve is a "Horns professor" and this video will give you plenty of fresh sets and counters to run on offense!
