Space the floor and take advantage of interchangeable players who can pass, dribble and shoot with the spread motion attack offense. Kevin McGeehan gives you a detailed on-court demonstration of this offense that will give your players the structure they need to space the floor and play as a team to create opportunities for open jump shots and easy layups.

Developed over time, the spread motion attack is a combination of Pete Carrill's Princeton Offense, NBA-style ball screens and elements of the dribble drive motion offense. Coach McGeehan not only shows you the basic principles and movements, he also explains the options (reads) each player has at any given moment.

Coach McGeehan starts with a brief overview of the philosophy behind the spread motion attack, as well as how it evolved over time to adjust to new defensive trends as well as various rosters and conference opponents. The information he shares in this portion of the presentation will enable you to adapt and adjust the offensive system to your own program. A big component of this motion offense—and one that will make your team tough to prepare for—is a seamless movement from a 1-2-2 spread setup to a 4-out-1-in setup ("point") and back. Step-by-step, Coach McGeehan explains the basic setups, the importance of spacing, how to exploit backdoor cuts, and teaching timing for specific passes and scenarios.

He continues with a 1-2-2 spread setup to "point" (4-out-1-in) using various entries and diverse scenarios. Here is where Coach McGeehan (and his system) shines because what usually would take an entire afternoon to explain, he breaks down into easily understood "if/then" scenarios. This action gets the ball into the high post through transition and creates multiple scoring opportunities by screening away. This set can also change the angle of the screen away to different spots on the floor to initiate different offensive options. This basic action allows players to score through backdoor cuts, open jump shots, dribble handoffs, ball screens, drift screens and more. You'll also learn variations to these basic sets that use "color calls" to signal different offensive actions and counter defensive tactics.

The premise of the spread motion attack offense is putting your players in a position to accurately, effectively and intuitively read the defense to create scoring opportunities. Learn how to transition into the basic sets of the offense and play through a variety of options that are created in the structured offense. With time, your team will not only be the toughest team to prepare for but your players will develop a very high basketball IQ.
