Basketball Play - Illini Fastbreak Game

Illini Fastbreak Game

Joel Hueser 10/04/2016

Illini Break is a competitive, team transition drill. The offense has the advantage and gets to play fast. Forcing the defense to get back with a high sense of urgency. We want to always fastbreak on defense. But first, we must emphasize our offensive board coverage (OBC). Then, if we do not secure the offensive rebound, all five players must get into the habit of always sprinting back. We consider your first three steps “out of the gate” as the most important. Guarding the basket is our number one priority and then stopping the ball. Once back, all five defenders need to establish ball side and help side position. This drill demands that, and more. Get ahead of the ball! No back pedaling, buddy running (remaining side by side with your match-up) and/or pouting after a missed shot or turnover. See More

Basketball Play - 2 on 2 Closeouts

2 on 2 Closeouts

John Leonzo 09/25/2016

2 on defense, 2 on offense. The defenders are in the corner and wing on one half f the court, and the offense on the other. The first defender passes to the second defender and begins to closeout diagonally. The second defender skips the ball and then closesout to the gap. Live play begins on the offense catch. See More

Basketball Play - Anticipation Drills

Anticipation Drills

Rory Hamilton 08/03/2016

The first set of drills we use to breakdown the defense are our "Anticipation Drills." These drills reinforce proper slides, coverages and playing with bounce and energy. Early in the season, we like to make every player go through each of these anticipation drills. See More

Basketball Play - Piston Drill

Piston Drill

Rory Hamilton 08/03/2016

This is by far the most important drill in teaching our 1-3-1. This drill incorporates the pushers and keeper working together in a piston like fashion. They must communicate who is big on ball and who is wide off the ball. In this drill, a coach will start with a ball and a pusher is big on the ball. The keeper than can back off and play the passing lane back to the other coach. The weak side pusher splits the difference from the block player and other coach. See More

Basketball Play - Warrior Drill

Warrior Drill

Rory Hamilton 08/03/2016

This drill is to simulate the warrior getting screened along the baseline which is a common attack we see vs. our 1-3-1. Coaches pass back and forth and the warrior must fight through continuous baseline screens. We teach fighting low through these screens forcing the offense away from scoring area and if we are late to the corner, it funnels the offense back into our umbrella trap. Drill continues for 20-25 seconds or when a certain number of deflections are met. Teaching point is that X1 should always be in line with the basketball. See More

Basketball Play - Rebounding Drills and Coverages

Rebounding Drills and Coverages

Rory Hamilton 08/03/2016

If a shot comes from the corner we are vulnerable on the weak side boards, so we must run our keeper to the weak side boards to help the pusher. Statistically, 7/10 will bounce weak side so we must attack the weak side boards. The clogger must spin and get to the block and box out that area. If a shot is taken from the wing, we form a triangle with our X1 Warrior going to either pinch in the post or go to weak side. We try as much as possible to form a rebounding triangle. See More

Basketball Play - 5 Guard 7 Shell

5 Guard 7 Shell

Rory Hamilton 08/03/2016

This is the last drill we do as a team to work on our team slides and communication. Defense is obviously at a disadvantage so they must have tremendous bounce, effort, and communication. Drill is live and offense tries to score but penetration can only come from the 4 corners of the floor. Block players are stationary and the elbow offensive player goes elbow to elbow. This is a competitive drill and we keep score of both points and offensive rebounds. By putting the defense at a disadvantage by guarding 7 players, we feel guarding 5 will be much easier. See More

Basketball Play - 1-3-1 Defense - BLOB Situations

1-3-1 Defense - BLOB Situations

Rory Hamilton 07/26/2016

BLOB Situations--Scouting and defending baseline situations man-to-man can be extremely difficult at times. More and more NCAA teams are utilizing a "diamond" or "1-3-1" alignment to defend BLOB situations. Syracuse and North Carolina both use this alignment when defending BLOB situations and teams usually just throw the ball all the way back into the back court to inbound the ball safely. See More

Basketball Play - 1-3-1 Defense SLOB Situations Part 2

1-3-1 Defense SLOB Situations Part 2

Rory Hamilton 07/26/2016

SLOB Situations-- We love to use the 1-3-1 on all sideline situations, especially when the ball is below the coaches box. By putting our tallest pusher (X4) on the ball, we can funnel the ball to the corner or make the offense throw it all the way back into the back court. You can also spring a surprise trap once the ball is inbounded and possibly catch the offense off guard. Both coverages are show below. See More
