- Incorporate the Screen & Roll into any motion offense

- Draw your opponent's post player outside of the paint
with Saul Phillips, former Ohio University Head Coach; former North Dakota State University Head Coach; 2014 Summitt League Coach of the Year; 2x Summitt League champions
Coach Phillips explains how instrumental the screen & roll has been to the early success of his program while competing against the bigger NCAA Division I basketball teams.
Coach Phillips' system is tremendous for battling teams that pressure passing lanes and have bigger, more talented players. He begins with a 2-on-2 set-up, covering three types of ball-screens:
- Vertical: Basic flat screen above the three-point line with "Phoenix Action."
- Standard: With the screener facing a sideline, Phillips teaches you how to read the hedge man and the options available.
- Chip: Screen in transition where the screener sets and pops.
With these three ball-screen options, Phillips demonstrates how to "pink" and "plus" the screen to counter defensive pressure and weakside help. He also demonstrates options whereby the screen posts after rolling or creating a mismatch by screening away for a shooter.
Phillips goes into a 5-on-0 setting to demonstrate the three sets used in his screen and roll offense: Gold, Open, and Vertical. Phillips' stresses the importance of putting your players in the best possible positions to make smart decisions. He covers a variety of defensive pressure scenarios including hard hedges, traps, and switches and what you can do to neutralize the defense.
