Former NCAA All-American, NBA guard and Olympic Gold Medalist, two time Mountain West Coach of the Year, and University of New Mexico Men's Basketball Steve Alford gives you the basis of success that he learned while playing for legendary coaches Sam Alford and Bob Knight. The DVD is broken up into 4 series that include: warm-up drills, transition offense and defense rebounding, defense, and offense. In the first series, warm- up drills, Alford begins practice with passing and ball handling drills that stress fundamentals, movements and teaching proper technique. The beginning of practice is also time he uses film to emphasize what he feels his team needs to improve on. The next series, transition offense and defense rebounding, Alford emphasizes correct passing to players who can make plays and teaches balance within his team’s transition defense to guard against easy baskets. The third series, defense, Coach Alford teaches his half-court defense using shell drills and shows how to defend dribble drive penetration, ball screens, down screens, cross screens, back screens and flare screens. He also emphasizes and teaches "mental quickness" to get players to compete and think quickly in different situations. The final section, offense, teaches Alford's disciplined motion and zone offenses and how you can save time teaching defensive techniques using his 4-on-4 shell drills. These skills will improve your athletes' performance and make them more complete players. 397 minutes (4 DVDs). 2011. DVD.
