The International Continuity Pick and Roll Offense
International basketball is catching up to the NBA. The international style of continuity offense continues to make the game competitive, even with the NBA. The leading expert on international basketball is Fran Fraschilla, the former head coach at Manhattan, St. John’s, and New Mexico who now serves as an international basketball analyst for ESPN.
In this video, Fraschilla compares the American style of pick and roll offense with that of international teams. Around the globe, more and more teams are playing the game with four perimeter plays which has led to greater skill development throughout the world. It is evident with the number of foreign players that are now on NBA rosters. Coach Fraschilla examines both the side pick and roll and the spread pick and roll offenses in this video.
Using on-court demonstrations, Coach Fraschilla offers insight into proper spacing in the pick and roll offense. He will show you three different side pick and roll plays detailing the actions of each player. Players can score off of dribble penetration or a kick-out option to the perimeter. The three sets include:
- Butler Pick and Roll action that has made the Bulldogs offense so good.

- Spread Pick and Roll Offense that has been a large part of the success of many international teams at the World Championships. Coach Fraschilla shows you several looks that will get you into the spread pick and roll.
Each of these sets is beneficial in that either can create confusion in your opponents. They also provide a number of different scoring opportunities as Coach Fraschilla puts on display for you. This 79-minute DVD is a must-have for a college or high school coach looking for something more in the pick and roll offense.
