Offensive Stratagies

Practice Idea to Build a Solid Offense

Here is a great tip from Ernie Woods of Hoop Tactics.  

Post Play-Shot Fake to Step Through

Great post players have great footwork. In the video clip the Russian post player, Andrey Vorontsevich, gives a great example of a shot fake to a step through move. There are several important points the player must execute if the move is to be effective against quality defenders.

First Big - Rim Run

Establishing position is the key to scoring in the post. One of the most important tactics used to acquire great position is the "rim run", the run from the defendsive end of the floor to basket at the other end. 


The New York Liberty of the WNBA ran this baseline out of bounds set vs man to man defence. 

1-3-1 Special

This is a popular zone quick hitter and is part of Michigan State's zone offence package.  The offence aligns in a 1-3-1 set. 


The University of Florida flowed into this early offence in their NCAA championship run in the 2007 season.
