An often-overlooked key in today's pace and space offenses is the ability to work inside out, which starts with getting the ball into the post. In this video, you'll learn the "whys" and "hows" of this critical skill from one of the country's most successful coaches, Mark Few.
Coach Few shows you how to utilize the post in transition as an offensive weapon regardless of the size of the post player. Building from the ground up, this video will help you and your players to see post opportunities as they develop in transition and how to put both post players and point guards in the most advantageous areas to score.
After initial two-player reads, Few illustrates different sets and techniques to get the ball into the post against a variety of defenses. This information will help you improve your offense for both post and perimeter players.
- How to utilize the offense off the post to get a high percentage shot for any player on the floor.
- How post play can alter an opponent's game strategy beyond just post defense.
- The most effective ways to punish a defense that pressures or double-teams the post.
No post play video would be complete without multiple sets and entry strategies to get the ball into the high percentage scoring area close to the basket. Few shows how different sets and varied entries can frustrate any defense.
Movement after a Post Entry
Playing inside-out is a staple of Coach Few's offensive philosophy, and he shows the kinds of offense that can be created after the ball is thrown inside. He details several options available depending on how the defense reacts to the ball being thrown into the post. One common reaction is to double-team the post once the ball goes inside. Coach Few shows plays to counter a double team from the opposite post player or the perimeter.
In a concluding Q & A session, Few demonstrates how to teach post skills to any player on your team, how to maximize post play against a zone, and shares some of the intangible qualities that the Gonzaga coaching staff looks for in a player.
