Videos Hide Videos Show Videos
In this video, Coach Nick Pasqua shows how he created a motion offense that incorporates the principles of modern, positionless basketball. He calls this offense the "European Hybrid Princeton Offense" and it's a combination of popular offenses like European Ball-Screen Offense, Motion Offense, the Princeton Offense and even Dribble-Drive Offense concepts.
The coach starts by explaining the offense in a detailed manner using diagrams and easy-to-follow explanations. He covers the initial alignment, designated spots, player responsibilities, player reads, and the terminology used in the offense. He also shows how the offense incorporates various actions, movements and responsibilities of each player positioned in each half of the court.
He also goes over the benefits of the offense and how it makes the team virtually un-scoutable to upcoming opponents. He also covers counter actions and how the offense can be used against a zone defense.
The second half of the video is a practice-like setting, where Coach Pasqua demonstrates the offense with his players in a 5-on-0 setting, quick-hitting actions, and 3-on-0 shooting drills that fit the offense. He also covers different baseline or sideline out-of-bounds plays that flow into the offense, and a 4-on-0 drill that improves dribble drive reads within this offense.
Finally, Coach Pasqua offers game clips of the offense in action against in-season opponents, with each clip narrated by him, describing each play, including what they were looking for and how they wanted to attack the defense.
This video is a comprehensive guide to learning and implementing the European Hybrid Princeton Offense. It's a unique blend of different offenses that makes it simple enough to break down for high-school level players. Coach Pasqua does a great job of explaining everything in detail and providing a lot of valuable information for coaches to improve their team's offense.
