Bob Knight: Essential Drills for Building a Championship Program

Philosophy - Coach Knight shares his philosophy on practice and how you can go about making each one as efficient as the next.
Conversion - Developing a great conversion game is based on two simple rules: Getting back on defense quicker than your opponent and getting the ball up the floor as fast as possible on offense. Knight demonstrates drills to work on these areas and increases the pressure of the drills by adding "thinking components" to them.
Mental Toughness - In every drill Knight demonstrates, focus and "observation" are paramount to its success. Not only are the drills physically demanding, but also mentally exhausting. With 20 innovative drills designed to prepare your players for the pressure of the game, it is easy to see why Coach Knight is the all-time winningest head coach in Division I Men's Basketball.
Fundamental Offensive Drills - Knight teaches the importance of quick, fast-thinking passing drills to stress communication, action and thinking. He shows competitive shooting drills that turn up the pressure on the shooter and are executed at game speed. He teaches the value of the free throw and the importance of spacing, screening and cutting within any offense.
Fundamental Defensive Drills - Coach Knights demonstrates his 2-on-2 and 3-on-3 help & recover drills and how to defend, score and rebound at the post position.
Over 50 game clips are shown covering effective offensive rebounding as well as good block outs. As a bonus, you will receive Coach Knight's Clinic I (retail value $60). Filmed in Indiana in 1983, this clinic features more thoughts on winning theory. This clinic is no longer available for purchase anywhere.

Bob Knight: Advanced Tactics & Techniques for Man-to-Man Offense
No one in the game teaches the motion offense better than coaching legend Bob Knight. Discover how his screening and cutting motions can benefit your offense.
Coach Knight teaches every element of his man-to-man offense with on-court demonstrations including screens, cutter options, post screens, screening angle, balance and spacing. This 2-DVD set includes never before seen footage of practices at Indiana University!
In each of these areas, Coach Knight shares his coaching philosophy, teaching methods, and crucial teaching points as he builds his man-to-man offense.
Philosophy - Bob Knight's emphasizes that cutting and screening gives you the best opportunity to shoot good shots every time down the court. Forcing all five defenders to guard at all times with no specific offensive pattern will allow for uncontested shots time after time.
With Knight's spacing principles, you have the opportunity to set screens and cut to the basket while keeping the floor properly balanced at all times.
Cutting & Screening - No matter what man-to-man offense you run, Knight demonstrates how you can use proper screening techniques, well-balanced spacing, and set up screens to make your offense highly efficient. Knight teaches the effective use of the down screen, the back screen, the cross screen, the flare screen, the slip screen, the double screen, and the T screen in a number of on-court demonstrations. Included in the bonus game films, you will discover hundreds of clips showing the screens in action.
Offensive Drills - All of Knight's drills begin with a 2-on-2 set-up and expand to 5-on-5. The drills utilize all of the screening and cutting actions covered in the screening segment. As the drills progress, constant motion with proper spacing is emphasized. To improve the flow of the offense, Knight implements limitations on the drills requiring players to "see and observe" the defense.
Motion Entries - In the bonus footage you will discover six motion entries Knight has used to initiate his passing, cutting, and screening offense.
Included are "Baseline Reverse" and "Triangle" which he has been using since his time at Indiana University in the early 1970s! In addition, you will also receive Coach Knight's Clinic V (retail value $60), which was filmed in 1997 and features more instruction on the offense.

Bob Knight: Advanced Tactics & Techniques for Man-to-Man Defense
Bob Knight brings you the most complete defensive video ever produced. From the moment your defense is in transition to the block-out on the rebound and everything in between, Knight teaches and demonstrates the most critical aspects of man defense.
Take an in-depth look at how Coach Knight developed and implemented his dominating man-to-man defense which led him to become the all-time winningest head coach in Division I Men's Basketball.
Philosophy - Tough man-to-man principles with great ball-side and weak-side help are hallmarks of Knight's successful brand of defense. Knight stresses the importance of finding the right defensive fit for your team's personnel.
Conversion & Rebounding - The two biggest areas that need to be worked on in every practice are transition defense and rebounding the basketball. Knight demonstrates techniques and drills that will get your team to run down the floor and deny any type of transition attack and finishing off possessions with securing rebounds.
Ball-Side & Help-Side Defense - A solid defensive team begins with tough on-the-ball pressure. With the philosophy of forcing the ball to the corners, Knight demonstrates how ball-side help must shut down the drive and that the recovery to your man is both "low and short."
