Every team will face pressure defense or a defensive scheme to disrupt them on offense. Ryan Looney shows you how teams that run the Swing offense can relieve that pressure or adjust to various schemes to get high percentage shots. Coach Looney has guided the Seattle Pacific Falcons to tremendous success over the past four years. His Swing offense is a major reason why they have had so much success. It is however, these sets and entries that allow his team to effectively get the offense started.
Through the years, Coach Looney has effectively found ways to counter any action the defense may throw at his teams as they begin to run the Swing offense. In this presentation he gives you these counters.
With a set, motion offense like the Swing, a pattern is run that is extremely difficult to defend. Most teams will resort to added pressure on the ball, as well as denials on the wing to stop the offense from getting going. Coach Looney teaches you three pressure release sets they use when a team decides to get into the passing lanes and pressure them in both the half court and full court. With each pressure release, you will learn about the backdoor opportunities include Fire, V-Out, and the Backdoor Reversal entry that will keep your opponent honest when they are guarding them. After a few times through it, the defense will have to change how it defends you.
Once in the half court, Coach Looney diagrams and uses on court demonstrators to show you 7 different entries they use to get into the swing offense. With each entry, Coach Looney describes when to use the entry and what kind of advantage it creates. He demonstrates their dribble entry, post dive, point guard dive, ball screen from wing, ball screens with the post players, and a wings up entry that guarantees ball reversal and movement in the half court. By using the ball screen options, defenses will think you have left the Swing, but each quickly and easily molds back into the Swing. This seamless transition continues to make the Swing offense and its entries incredibly difficult to guard.
With any good offense, you must have set plays that can lead right into the swing offense. Coach Looney gives you three complete sets that incorporate post screening action and lead into high low scoring options with your post players. You will have a complete swing offense after you have installed these sets and entries into your half court offense.
As with Coach Looney's Swing Offense DVD, on-court instruction is his main tool to teach the entries, but he also uses diagrams of the action as well as showing game footage of each concept that he teachers. This presentation and these sets are easy to understand and simple to teach. Combing this DVD with the Swing offense DVD and you are ready to put this dangerous offense into action. 63 minutes. 2013.
