Ben Jacobson: Individual and Team Offensive Drills
Northern Iowa head basketball coach Ben Jacobson is known for challenging the best teams in the country with a controlled, disciplined offensive attack. The style of play has served Jacobson well as he has led the Panthers to two Missouri Valley regular season championships and three conference tournament titles. His teams have won 20 or more games in six different seasons.
In this 72-minute video, Jacobson uses on-court demonstration to show you some of his favorite practice drills, transition sets, and baseline out of bounds plays. The drills you will see are great conditioners which frees up practice time to work on other aspects of the game. You will see four options in transition that challenge your opponent no matter what they try to stop.
If you want to be a successful basketball player, you need to be able to do three things well: shoot, pass, and dribble. Coach Jacobson shows you six practice drills that build these individual fundamentals. Two-Minute Passing helps players perfect the art of passing as well as condition themselves as they move up and down the floor. The Corners Drill allows players the ability to see the floor, handle ball pressure and use individual offensive moves.
Coach Jacobson diagrams three transition sets that his teams have used over the past few seasons. You will see each set demonstrated on the court. Each set offers a number of different scoring options on both the perimeter and at the rim. You will see the transition sets in action in both half-court and full-court scenarios in 5-on-5 so you get the feel for beating any defensive alignment.
Baseline Out of Bounds
It never hurts to have an extra baseline out of bounds play. Coach Jacobson shows you two here. Each play gives you a shooting option from the corner and one at the rim versus the common 2-3 zone that is played in these situations. Coach Jacobson also shows you his favorite play for a late-game 3-point shot.
This is an excellent video for coaches looking to get the most out of their players through the use of individual and team development drills. The concepts and drills presented in this video are a great place to start in improving any team’s skills.
