    How to Run a Basketball Practice with Dave Paulsen

    Want to learn how to run a basketball practice from a college coach? For improving efficiency and preparation, Coach Paulsen's practices are a great example. Whether it is to improve the passing or shooting, every drill is very useful as it is a breakdown for their “Buckeye” or Ball Screen Motion Offense. There are different 5-on-5 mini scrimmages and each one has its own twist to focus while taking care of the ball and heighten the defensive intensity. In each defensive drill, the element of Paulsen's “Buckeye” motion offense is there from closeouts to rebounding to shell drill.

    In all the practices, there is a part which is related to the comptetitive 5-on-5 scrimmages. In the defense area the variations are applied, which makes the scenarios appear different when it comes to the offense. Well, the focus of Coach Paulsen is to Create a Swarming Defense which will give the offense the impression that the defense is everywhere. So, this will help the players to understand the motion offense and its numerous options.

    There is a 5-on-4-plus-1 disadvantage drill which is known as RUSH. The best defensive team will win in the “3 consecutive stops”. So, this will really put a pressure on the offense to perform. On the other hand, when it comes to the “Score Stop”, teams will only be able to secure a point if they can get a defensive stop after a made basket.
