Three time National Coach of the Year, 2000 NCAA National Champion, and Michigan State Head Basketball Coach Tom Izzo shares his coaching philosophy on special situations , or what he calls "special teams situations." Special teams involve: jump balls, missed offensive free throws, baseline out-of-bounds, sideline out-of-bounds, and plays after time outs. Izzo stresses three main goals when it comes to special teams play: score points, have a specific purpose, and have and inside and outside option. Use these plays and strategies to go after an opposing player who is in foul trouble, to generate fouls against your opponent's best player, and to get the shots you need late in the game. 62 minutes. 2010.
