Jay Wright – Attacking Footwork Drills for Guards
Footwork drills for guards with Jay Wright. There is reason why the Villanova basketball program has had so much success over the past decade. With two national titles in the last three seasons, the Wildcats have emerged as one of the nation’s elite basketball schools. Head coach Jay Wright is the guy that made it happen.
In this footwork drills for guards video, Wright shares with you his approach to teaching proper basketball fundamentals and footwork. You will see firsthand how Wright has transformed players from different high school systems all over the country into cohesive units that annually contend for Big East and national championships.
Wright knows what he is talking about. His Wildcat teams have won five Big East regular season titles, two conference tournament championships, and, of course, the 2018 national title. As a result of last year’s championship, Wright was honored with his second Naismith College Coach of the Year Award.
Coach Wright teaches all of his players, regardless of position, proper fundamentals and footwork that have allowed Villanova to gain an edge over its Big East opponents. In the video, you will see how Wright identifies the four major scoring areas on the basketball floor:
- Prime time (block)
- Mid-post (off block)
- Slot (high post)
All of Wright’s players have the ability to score from any of these four areas. One of the big reasons why is the use of proper footwork. Wright preaches that players must have the ability to score off of either foot. Villanova workouts consist of players learning to pivot on either foot and on both sides of the floor. He constantly tells his players the why behind the proper footwork too.
