In the 2013-14 season, first year Stephen F. Austin coach Brad Underwood led his team to a 32-3 record.

The Jacks were one of only three schools in the nation to go undefeated in conference play in the 2013-14 season.

With offensive schemes changing every year, coaches are always looking for an edge. Stephen F. Austin State University Head Coach Brad Underwood shares his version of the basketball spread offense, a continuity-based scheme that creates a lot of movement to stress the defense.

This scheme is a "position-less offense," which gives the defense different looks based on the different entries that can be used. The spacing, passing, cutting and driving lanes available ensures that your team gets high percentage shots. Coach Underwood breaks down his spread offense in a whole-part-whole instructional set-up, including drills that provide great scoring opportunities .

Coach Underwood starts by showing where players are positioned on the court and how they will move once the first entry pass is made. No matter what entry is made, two offensive players make consecutive hard basket cuts. If they don't get a high percentage shot, they move into 2-man game. Coach Underwood breaks down all of the cuts made to execute these offensive concepts, which has continuity from either side of the court.

He then demonstrates three ways to flow into the offense if the initial wing entry is not open. Each action is based on the point guard's decision. The basic entry is the wing entry. Coach Underwood explains why it's important for players to fight to get their spot, and what they can do to get that spot. High post entry is used when facing teams that like to pressure the perimeter. Dribble entry provides another different look using a down screening action on the weak side to get a player a great post up opportunity. All of these entries are reads and not particularly calls from the bench.

Breakdown Drills
Coach Underwood breaks down daily practice drills to teach the skills and build the habits needed to run the offense effectively. Players learn to play each spot and while the entire team is involved, the drills are broken down into the 2-, 3- and 4-player actions of the offense. The drills focus on fast and aggressive cuts, which is the most important element to a successful offense. Coach Underwood also shares an in-depth look at next most important element, which is his two-man game. Lastly, he emphasizes the fill players, who are a vital part of the offense to keep the floors spaced and balance in order to stress the defense.

Coach Underwood also shows you how an element of the popular dribble drive motion offense can be used with his spread offense to create favorable match-ups and post player looks.

If you're looking to spread the floor with an offense that combines great cuts, post play and an effective two-man game, look no further. Coach Underwood shares a complete spread offense package that creates a continuity offense while incorporating the key elements of the new and upcoming styles of offense.
