Basketball Play - Continuous Blast-Cuts

Continuous Blast-Cuts

Joel Hueser 09/13/2016

A good motion offense is hard to guard; all the while maintains good floor balance and spacing. This is done by cutting and replacing. Continuous blast cuts is a two line shooting drill that teaches just that. Our primary motion cut after passing off the top is toward the basket (aka basket cut). When that happens it is important to fill the open spot from the weakside with a blast cut. In doing so we like to emphasize the following: 2 Step Rule - Take your defender two steps toward the basker before blasting to the top. Recruit the Glute - Blast off of your baseline foot. Change of Speed - We like to say go in slow and come out fast. Outside Hand - Provide and pass to the outside hand away from the defense. Inside Pivot - We teach the inside pivot. On the catch, square up to the basket and look RPA (rim, post, action). This drill progresses through four phases: Catch & Shoot Shot Fake Blow-by Foot Fake Crossover Back-cut This is a great team shooting drill to incorporate at all levels: elementary ages to professional!

Basketball Play - 4 Corner Shooting (WPD)

4 Corner Shooting (WPD)

Joel Hueser 09/06/2016

Motion offense is one of our program pillars. 4 Corner Shooting (WPD) is one of our favorite motion team shooting drills. This drill is not only a good shooting drill, but it also incorporates game-like passing and cutting fundamentals. 4 Corner Shooting (WPD) works best with 8 players and 4 basketballs. We concentrate on four different cuts, but additional cuts could easily be added. Our motion principles emphasize wide pin down screens. From this action, 4 cuts may happen based on how the defense guards the action. 1. Straight Cut – More times than not this is the cut made coming off of a wide pin down screen. There is usually just enough time to catch and shoot. We teach and emphasize the inside-pivot, but still have a few athletes who are more comfortable hopping into their shot. 2. Curl – When the defender chases the 1st cutter over the screen, it is important to curl (or as we say, tight curl) into the paint and attack the basket. 3. Flare – When the defender goes under the screen, the screener is taught to reposition his screening angle and the 1st cutter flares to the open spot. 4. Reject – Also, very aggressive teams will try to blow up your screen and beat the 1st cutter to the spot. At this point, we are teaching a back cut. Another important teaching point is that of the second cutter. We like to say, “Finish your cuts!” One example of this is for the 2nd cutter (screener) to read the 1st cutter and go opposite in direction. The drill sequence is as follows: 1) pass first 2) screen second 3) shoot third 4) rebound last 5) change lines. Our team goal is always 15 or more mfg’s for every minute. We will either go for 8 minutes or 4 minutes; depending on our time allotted. To date our best ever is 135 mfg’s in 8 minutes. Again, 120 mfg’s is a very realistic goal for high school players.

ACE is one of the ball screen concepts in the Villanova Four-Out Motion Offense. ACE is a side ball screen set by the interior play on the wing. It can sometimes be set by a perimeter player as well. Instead of the automatic roll in ROLL, the screener pops for a shot and throwback option. Weakside players exchange. Slot player shades to the weakside of the midline to leave double gap for the drive. Villanova Playbook... See More
