About This Play/Drill

VCU Head Coach Shaka Smart was one of the hottest coaching names in the off-season, but showed his true loyalty to the program that he has built into a yearly power.


This year Smart returns a line-up with experience and their offense is enjoyable and entertaining to watch.


This Weave action really does a good job using the flare screen, good cutting actions, and a ball screen at the end to set-up a wide open 3 pt shot in the corner.


VCU's quickness at the guard positions gives defenses nightmares with their ability to breakdown 1 v 1 off the dribble.
