Ball screens are becoming a huge part of basketball and can be a successful tool for your team if they are executed properly. This ball screen DVD will give you the tools you need to install this system into your program.

In this on-court clinic presentation, Chris Mack gives you a comprehensive look at the inner workings of a successful ball screen offense.

Coach Mack will show you how a ball screen offense can:

  • Limit turnovers and make plays by keeping the ball in your best players hands
  • Force your opponent's post players to defend away from the basket
  • Gain rebounding advantages, get open shots, get to the free throw line more often and create mismatches using rotations

Learn the most important concepts you must teach the dribbler and the screener: Creating separation, getting to the level of the screen, how to hold the screen and the three types of screens.

Using a 2-on-2 demonstration, Mack shows you the five defense attacks most commonly used to defend the ball screen. For each of these scenarios, Mack takes you through two ways to attack the defense and provides the ball handler and screener reads and passes.

To help you incorporate ball screens into your offense, Mack delivers ball screen plays in a 5-on-0 setting.

Using this effective ball screen offense, Coach Mack was the winningest first-year head coach in Division I in 2009-10 and the only rookie head coach to lead his team into the 2010 NCAA Tournament field.

68 minutes. 2010.

Produced at the Fall 2009 Ohio clinic.

With this all access pass, you get the opportunity to watch Chris Mack and the Xavier Musketeers build on their Sweet 16 performance from the 2009-10 season. This DVD contains the first four practices of the 2010-11 season. See what it means to do things "the Xavier way!"

Throughout the video, you will see the emphasis of competing every day, demonstrating box toughness, and working on the little details that will set your program apart. In addition, Mack demonstrates various transition drills on both offense and defense, half-court defensive drills focusing on closing out and "walling up," and the breakdown of the ball-screen offense.

Pre-Practice & Warm-Ups:
Assistant coaches take the court with the players to get them loose both mentally and physically. Practices begin with the "daily dozen," consisting of drills to attack the basket.

Defensive System:
Coach Mack emphasizes the packline pressure defense, keeping the ball out of the middle, relying on excellent help defense and communication. Learn how he builds his defense with individual and team defensive drills, highlighting drills designed on close-outs, building walls, closing all gaps, and jumping to the ball.

Rounding out team defense drills, Mack incorporates triangle block-outs and WAR rebounding to replicate game situations. Mack also gives his players a plan on how to defend middle and side ball screens,
