Coaching Emphasis

  • Coming to the basketball when stepping to a pass on the perimeter. (Go through the ball - not to it.)
  • Teaching the Slip Screen - recognizing when to slip if a defender is switching/overplaying.
  • Offensive players need to bring their man down to set them up to use a Down Screen.
  • Screeners getting set and taking proper angles.
