Basketball Play - Texas Tech Red Raiders - Motion Sample: Step Up

Texas Tech Red Raiders - Motion Sample: Step Up

Dave Nedbalek 04/08/2019

This is another preview of an action that is beautiful that occurred organically in the Texas Tech motion offense. Of all the actions we prepare our team to guard, we don't guard post up defense to pin down into a double step-up ball screen very well. This action puts great pressure on the rim because of both the athletic ability of Tariq Owens and the vision and beautiful pass by Matt Mooney.

Texas Tech Red Raiders - Motion Sample: Kitchen Sink

Dave Nedbalek 04/08/2019

This is a sample of the Texas Tech true motion offense. This is not a set play but a picture of the sequences of actions you will have to guard when facing them. In one possession you have to guard: a drag screen, flare screen, slipped step-up screen, a pick & pop, and one last flare screen by the 5 to empty the paint. The spacing struggles at times but they force you into uncommon situations and actions that it presents the opportunity for miscommunication and scoring opportunities.

Texas Tech Red Raiders - Motion Floppy Flare

Dave Nedbalek 04/08/2019

This is a sample of the organic nature of the Texas Tech offense. It is hard to know whether or not this is a designed action after the floppy with Culver due to the constant player freedom to screen off ball at any time but this does give you a preview of the certain type of actions you will be responsible to communicate through and guard when playing vs. Texas Tech.

Basketball Play - Texas Tech Red Raiders - Runner

Texas Tech Red Raiders - Runner

Matt Wheeler 04/08/2019

Texas Tech runs this play to get the ball to their star player Jarrett Culver (3). The Red Raiders will run him off of baseline screens to get him open for a shot on either side of the floor. If he can't get open on the baseline 3 will cut up top for the pass. They will then go back to their motion principles with 4 & 5 will setting flare screens for the guards. 3 can read the play and make the pass to either cutter or screener. If the ball goes to 4 or 5 they will then go into a side pick and roll. Blog Post: Texas Tech Defense Puts Opponents on Red Alert See More

Basketball Play - Virginia Cavaliers - PNP Runner

Virginia Cavaliers - PNP Runner

Matt Wheeler 04/08/2019

This has been one of Virginia's favorite after-timeout plays of the NCAA tournament so far. The baseline screen for 3 is a similiar action to what they do in their Blocker-Mover motion offense but this time they run it as a set play to make sure Kyle Guy (3) gets the ball for a look at a three-point shot. 1 dribbles left off the screen to shift the defense to that side of the floor. On the airtime of the pass to 5, 1 cuts across the lane and 3 cuts off the screen from 4. 5 passes to 3 for the shot. Blog Post: Virginia's Elite Efficiency on Both Sides of the Ball See More

Texas Tech Red Raiders - Box Rip Lob

Matt Wheeler 04/08/2019

Texas Tech opened their Final Four game against Michigan State with this variation of their box set to get a lob dunk. 2 fakes the cross screen for 3 then cuts over 4 to the wing. This is a common action that they run in their "Box PNR" play. 3 then sets a back screen for 4. 1 passes to 4 at the rim for the lob dunk.

Texas Tech Red Raiders - Iverson Point Ricky

This is another simple set that has high volume results. Depending on how the defense plays back-screens you can save this wrinkle for a key moment to get a great shooter a shot. If the defender is jumping to the ball and getting through the backscreen first the cutter can simply cut back out on the weak side for a wide open fade. The big can read the catch and go right into a step up screen if there is no advantage on the catch as well. A great wrinkle would be to slip your 5 man on the down-screen if there is switching or miscommunication. Blog Post: Texas Tech Defense Puts Opponents on Red Alert See More

Basketball Play - Texas Tech Red Raiders - Hot Action

Texas Tech Red Raiders - Hot Action

Dave Nedbalek 04/08/2019

This is an extremely difficult action to make x5 guard but is incredibly simple to run. We call this "Hot Action" which is a back screen off-ball, followed immediately by an on-ball screen. If the big tags the cutter on the back-screen as he should, unless they are switching, this puts him late to his ball screen coverage. Simple, yet effective.

Texas Tech Red Raiders - 25 Rub

Dave Nedbalek 04/08/2019

This is a very simple way to put 5's defender in a tough situation and a step behind a quick strike action. Notice the motion principles staying true off-ball with Culver adding the flare screen after 2's brush screen on 5. If x5 jumps to coverage early your big can slip to the rim wide open. As with most of Tech's offense were never 100% sure what is a natural occurrence in their true motion offense but nonetheless, this is a simple effective way to help your big arrive alone.
