Videos Hide Videos Show Videos
University of North Florida head coach Matt Driscoll brings you inside one of his preseason practices for a look at breaking the press, early offense, and conversion drills. Driscoll is highly respected in the coaching community and it shows in his resume. His UNF teams have won three Atlantic Sun Conference championships (2015, 2016, 2020) and he has captured three conference Coach of the Year honors. In this video, you will see how Driscoll runs an intense practice that is fast paced and high on energy.
Coach Driscoll’s practice begins with two drills that help the team prepare for breaking presses. Options like “Scrape to Rim Runner” and “Pitch to the Rim” are just a few of the many covered. Over 10 different scoring options are presented in this segment of the practice.
The next part of the practice is focused on getting the ball into the post. A variety of options are reviewed once the ball gets inside. Coach Driscoll offers some great insight for coaches here. He shows you where you can find open space and where players can cut to in order to get great scoring opportunities.
Coach Driscoll then shifts to a defensive emphasis with a full court 3-on-3 drill. Players must full court defense using half-court principles in an effort to find success. It’s a challenge to cover the entire court with just three players. This forces players to communicate and execute what they have been taught by Driscoll.
The practice session ends with the Circle the Wagons Drill, one that covers essentially every aspect of the game in a 5-on-5 situation. The drill can be used to teach everything from rebounding to transition offense and defense. Watch as Coach Driscoll uses the drill to teach his concepts but also instill his culture in his team.
This is an outstanding video featuring one of the nation’s great coaches as he lets you see how his offense, defense, and transition game is run at North Florida.
