Steve Forbes: 13 End of Game & In-Bounds Plays
The best coaches prepare their teams for every situation including the crucial end-of-game ones. In this video, East Tennessee State head coach Steve Forbes opens up his playbook to provide you with solutions for those pressure-packed late-game situations. Coach Forbes has worked with some of the best in the business – Billy Gillespie, Bruce Pearl, and Gregg Marshall – as an assistant. He has taken what he has learned and put together 13 plays for special situations as well as a number of other concepts and strategies that can help any coach survive late-game scenarios.
Full Court “Home Run” Plays
There are times when you are forced to score in a final moments of a game and you may have to travel the length of the floor to do so. Coach Forbes gives you the tools to do so whether on a dead ball or made basket situation.
- Otero: Counter aggressive full-court pressure to get an easy layup
- Valparaiso: Use this dead ball play when you need a winning basket with just seconds to play
Push and Play Early Offense
The Push and Play series can be used when a team needs a two-point basket. Memphis calls for players to sprint from a free throw right into the dribble-drive offense without calling a timeout. The dribbler can force the action and often pressure officials into calling a foul.
Shocker is another fast break play that uses a dribble hand-off, a ball screen, and a flare screen to free up a team’s best shooter for a late-game 3-point shot.
The 6-Second Play
Some of the most stressful times during games come in the final seconds. Coach Forbes gives you three 6-second plays to prepare for those exact situations. Box Timeout is a simple way to advance the ball to half-court without wasting any time on the clock and call a timeout to set up a sideline play.
Sideline Inbounds Plays
You must have a number of sideline inbounds plays in your playbook as this is the spot where many a game is decided. You will see Coach Forbes demonstrate eight different sideline inbounds plays that can be used in late-game situations. Forbes names each play after a game in which he used the play and won.
This is an excellent resource for late-game situations. Coach Forbes gives you everything you need to set up the right play when a game is on the line.
