Keith Dambrot – Winning Plays for Special Situations
Basketball is a game of special situations and being prepared for them is the path for success. Former Akron and current Duquesne University head coach Keith Dambrot shares with you a wealth of wisdom and experience in dealing with those special situations. While at Akron, Dambrot led the Zips to 21 or more wins in 12 of his 13 seasons. He was the MAC Coach of the Year in 2016 and ’17.
In this video, you will see 5-on-5 on-court demonstrations of everything from inbound plays to how to beat a 1-3-1 defense and much more. Coach Dambrot also addresses late-game situations.
BLOB & Knife
Two baseline out of bounds plays are demonstrated to get the ball to your best player. If the entry pass is taken away, Dambrot demonstrates a knife technique that attempts to get a wing into a gap in the zone. This is a technique that can be used against any zone defense.
Match Up 1-3-1 Offense
Facing a 1-3-1 defense is a special situation since many teams do not utilize it. Playing against a 1-3-1 can be a challenge especially with undersized guards. Given Dambrot’s expertise with the 1-3-1, he has developed ways for securing multiple entries and seals to beat it. You will watch as Coach Dambrot walks through the options to create space and get open shots against the 1-3-1.
Pressing off of Missed Baskets
Because of its difficulties, many teams do not press after missed shots. Dambrot explains how he designs rebounding to flow right into press defense. In addition to the press, Dambrot offers five additional plays for handling late-game situations. These are situations where you must advance the ball the length of the floor in less than seven seconds and get a 3-point shot. Dambrot also adds over 15 adjustments to these plays.
Being prepared for special situations can lead a team to a few extra wins each season. Coach Dambrot addresses so many special situations that you will come back to this video time and again.
