Use simple screening techniques and concepts to get your players open for shots they can make! Get detailed instruction and insight on play-oriented offense from one of the game's great teachers and most successful coaches, Tom Izzo.
Izzo details three series of plays: Chest Series, Horns Series and Thumb Down Series. Each series contains a variety of sets, pick & roll action and numerous scoring options to add firepower to your offense.
Run from a 2-3 set, the Chest Series is very effective in countering intense defensive pressure. Izzo delivers five different sets out of the Chest Series with various screens and back cuts to take on more talented teams and negate their athletic advantage.
Unitizing a 1-4 high set, the Horns Series allows for great spacing, backdoor cuts and numerous scoring options. Another great series to beat tough pressure defense.
The Thumb Down Series makes it easy to interchange positions based on your teams' abilities and match-ups you see week to week.
In addition, Izzo highlights:
- Simple tricks for getting open off a screen that any player can do.
- Two effective drills to teach the fundamentals of pin down and on-ball screens.
- A play to take advantage of the big man who won't come out on the floor to defend.
Izzo also includes a baseline inbounds play, which provides multiple scoring opportunities, and two end-of-clock plays that are great to run if you find your team down and need a good shot late in the game.
It's all here. Drills to improve your screening, full offensive sets, and specialty plays; all presented by a coach with a .700+ winning percentage and a perennial power in college basketball. Install Tom Izzo's plays into your system today!
