Nathan Davis’ Basketball Offensive System
Bucknell University head coach Nathan Davis has had plenty of success running a high-octane offense that also allows his teams to run the clock if easy shots are not possible. Davis won four straight Patriot League regular season titles from 2016 to 2019, won two league tournaments (2017 & ’18), and has taken home two Patriot League Coach of the Year awards (’16, ’17). See exactly how he runs the floor and flows right into a motion offense with multiple actions, ball screens, and lots of scoring opportunities.
Transition to Motion
Coach Davis philosophy is to get the ball out quickly on a make or a miss and score within the first six seconds of the shot clock. If that is not possible, the Nathan Davis’ Basketball Offensive System is designed to score in the final six seconds of the shot clock.
You will see how Davis likes to run the floor and create scoring opportunities with dribble penetration, kick-outs, pitch-backs, or screens. Coach Davis also likes the low post player to stay opposite the ball to create space and, ultimately, get catches with two feet in the paint.
In the 5-Man motion offense, Coach Davis has the post players work together. One plays on the perimeter and one in the post. The first action you see is a post player exchange with one screening for the other. The action also creates an opportunity for a drive from the ball-side corner.
A second action is the post player setting a screen for a guard when the ball is passed. The guard reads the defense looking to curl for a layup, use a back cut for a layup, or pop out for an open 3-pointer. The weak-side flare screen is also a way to get the ball into the hands of a good shooter.
In addition to running in transition and using the 5-man motion offense, Coach Davis is a big fan of ball screens. He teaches his screeners to sprint to the screen to achieve the element of surprise. Using actions like Triple and Jazz, Coach Davis create opportunities for two- and three-player actions. Warrior is a ball screen action that incorporates a back cut by one guard and a pass-and-follow ball screen.
Coach Davis teaches you his up-tempo offense and how to use it to create opportunities for quick scores and how to use the offense to use the clock to get open looks and dictate the pace of games. This is an outstanding look at a complete offense. Rent Nathan Davis’ Basketball Offensive System DVD today.
