He shows you his base set, the 1-3-1, and why he uses it to attack all zone defenses.

    Man-to-Man Offense

    Izzo uses packages of set plays to beat man-to-man defense. He breaks down five plays in his Horns and 452 Series of quick hitters using the whiteboard before showing them in live scrimmage action. Each set in Horns comes with a counter depending on how the defense is playing. All plays are designed to get the ball into the lane in some fashion.

    Structured Transition Offense

    Coach Izzo takes you through to practice drills to teach transition offense. It is imperative that a team learn to stay organized while playing fast. Coach Izzo’s drills show you all of the scoring options available in the two drills – the 5-on-0 Break and the Dummy War into Break. The 5-on-0 Break gives players an opportunity to walk through the drill and see each scoring opportunity.

    End of Clock Execution
