2006 NCAA Final Four George Mason University Head Coach Jim Larranaga outlines the staple of his winning program, the eight C's; character, competitiveness, competence, consistency, cohesiveness, commitment, communication and confidence. Larranaga uses a four step process; demonstration, imitation, correction and repetition. Additional teaching categories include guarding an open player, defensive transition and defensive philosophy. The second part of Larranaga's instruction focuses on defense, man-to-man, with the scramble as a secondary defense. A combination of the two is a series of zones that he calls the Camouflage, a strategically planned surprise defense that forces the offense to react to the defense. Included are three core drills for this defense. In a bonus section, the Camouflage and its teaching points are shown with players in a full court setting. Each pass, trap, deflection, and player responsibility is analyzed. Two sets of strategies are used one in the backcourt and one in the frontcourt. This two dvd set is loaded with the information you need to succeed! 2 DVDs - 128 minutes. 2008.
