Coach Tom Izzo provides on-the-floor examples of how he has mastered the art of designing set plays. Izzo demonstrates 11 quick hitting plays from the Quick Strike, Thumbs Down and Loop Set Series. Each play features isolation opportunities and multiple counter looks. In addition, Izzo features a great warm-up drill he refers to as the O'Neill Drill, which represents his entire defensive system in one drill. Player communication, decision-making, transition offense and conditioning are all wrapped into one competitive drill. Izzo believes this drill can provide training for every defensive situation your team will see in any game. The 2-on-1 to 5-on-5 progressions put pressure on the defense using a numbers disadvantage and demands communication and effective help side defense on each trip down the floor.
