This instructional DVD by Mike Jones, head basketball coach of nationally acclaimed DeMatha Catholic High School, shows you how to put your team in attack mode by beating your opponent down the court in every possession.

Using on-court demonstrations, Coach Jones covers various quick-strike, fast-break strategies from inbounding the ball to running lanes to player responsibilities. He also includes several passes every player must be able to make.

DeMatha's up-tempo "Bingo" offense creates a seamless transition from one phase of offense into another without stopping to reset players. Emphasis is placed on pushing the ball up court quickly with well-timed, well-executed passes. Jones also looks at quick decision-making against defensive pressure with a strategy called "Bingo recognition."

The "Bingo" offense requires tremendous conditioning. To ensure your players can meet the demands of this effective yet intense offense, Jones offers 13 different conditioning drills ranging from simple two-ball passing and three-man weave all the way to "Bingo" recognition.

He emphasizes the importance of communication and accurate ball handling in the development of the fast break. All drills focus on spreading the ball, making game passes and taking shots from the floor in situations that simulate real-game play. Each drill is designed to develop players' athleticism and reaction time.

Jones shows how he has maintained the momentum of coaching great Morgan Wootten. Learn from the best—improve your fast break offense with strategies responsible for DeMatha's string of championship successes.
