Score quick and score easy with these deadly two man offensive strategies! Cutting and screening are important aspects of the game of basketball. Fran Fraschilla brings decades of basketball experience and knowledge to the court to teach you how to break down your offense into a two man system that will allow your players to read a screen and take what the defense gives them.
Fraschilla does an outstanding job of teaching every possible option you can use off of a down screen action, pick and roll action, and a rip action. This is an excellent DVD that will help your players improve their offensive basketball IQ.
Down Screen Series - Using a simple post down screen to get a guard open, Fraschilla demonstrates the variety of options you can use to score against any type of man-to-man defense. By setting the down screen, your team is already learning to become unselfish as Fraschilla demonstrates how to curl for a jump shot or layup, how to slip to get a look for your post players, and how to fade for a baseline jumper or post pass for an easy bucket.
Side Pick and Roll Series - If you have trouble scoring against a good defense, Fraschilla provides an alternative scoring action that can be consistently effective at scrambling the entire defense, not just the two defenders involved in the action. Fraschilla walks you through the side pick and roll series and then shows how to execute a pick and roll, pick and pop, pick and slip, or a simple pick and reject.
Rip Series - Learn a variety of scoring options using a rip series that will allow your players to catch on the wing and attack the basket when a defender is late to closeout. Attack the basket using a rip and go, rip and slip, rip and drive baseline, and see a rip and elbow jumper for your post player. Fraschilla also throws in a great re-screening action that will get your best shooters open when they are guarded by great defenders.
Learning to be unselfish in the two man game is as important as looking to score for yourself. This DVD is great for any coach who is looking to teach their players how to play off of screens, improve their half court offense, and create better scoring opportunities for their post players or top scorers. 39 minutes. 2012.
