Basketball Offense - Conceptual Approach to Man-to-Man & Zone
Furman is not known as a basketball power, but head coach Bob Richey has led the school to back-to-back 20-plus win seasons including a school record 25 wins in the 2018-19 season. That season included wins over 2018 Final Four participants Villanova and Loyola-Chicago. How Coach Richey has done it at Furman is by teaching his players to read defenses and take what is given. In this video, he shows you how to teach your athletes how to break down defenders and develop an unstoppable offense.
Basketball Offense Philosophy
Coach Richey’s philosophy entails allowing players to go from Option 1 to Option 3 in a matter of seconds. He emphasizes close 2s, assisted 3-pointers, and getting players to the free throw line. Doing so can help any player excel at any position on the floor.
Man Basketball Offense
In the man defense segment, Coach Richey breaks down his terminology and shows the actions that he teaches starting with the transition offense. Players learn to use the open floor for easy cuts, drives, and dishes to open shooters.
Once the offense transitions into the half-court, Coach Richey demonstrates a series of actions including a Houston series that uses a dribble handoff and a ball screen to create pick and rolls or pick and pops for your post players.
Zone Basketball Offense
Against zone defenses, Coach Richey likes to put a playmaker in the middle of the zone. Using a 4-around-1 set, players can still use man-to-man cutting actions to score. As players get more comfortable with the cutting actions, you can add in ball screens to create pick and roll situations that often leave wide open back cuts and wide open shooters.
Coach Richey’s offensive system is an easy one to learn and one that players will love. By teaching athletes to read the defense and play without running a continuous offense, they become unstoppable in creating scoring opportunities. Rent this basketball offense DVD today.
