(Rental)-4 Out 1 In Motion Offense: Dribble Drive & Princeton
In this informative video, Coach Jamie Dixon guides viewers through his half-court offense, which utilizes concepts from both the Princeton Offense and the Dribble Drive Motion Offense. He demonstrates how to play without a traditional "back to the basketball" post player and covers basic actions, drives, ball screens and dribble handoffs to create a dynamic, almost unstoppable offense.
Coach Dixon begins by showcasing a 'chin' setup, where the post player starts on the low block and moves to the high post to create a simple 4-out motion offense. He explains how positioning guards in the deep corners and on the lane line helps create more space for driving angles and paint touches, placing opponents into recovery mode by playing at a disadvantage.
He then demonstrates how to add different scoring actions to increase player confidence and build on concepts from the Dribble Drive Motion Offense. Coach Dixon covers 3 different drives: the baseline drive, elbow drive, and nail drive. Each drive places more pressure on the defense and requires players to maintain their spacing to prevent another defender from helping.
Coach Dixon also covers ball-screen actions and dribble handoffs to make the 4-Out 1-In Motion Offense more effective. He shows how to use ball reversals for post feed entry opportunities, 'Jet Cut' actions for perimeter players and 'Fan Out' actions for post players, and the popular "Grenade" action, a hard-to-guard dribble handoff coming out of the post.
In summary, Coach Dixon explains how spreading the floor, creating attacking actions, incorporating ball screens and using the Princeton Offense setup and Dribble Drive concepts can create a new style of play. He believes that by adapting to defense and having post player move around is becoming more popular in today's game and that's the ingredients needed to make an unstoppable offense.
