NCAA Championship coach Brenda Frese shows you how to create an up-tempo style of play and provides drills for improving passing skills and shooting percentage.
Good shooting is developed using position-specific breakdown drills based on offensive sets and competitive team drills. In this segment, Coach Frese will show you how to get your entire team working together to hit shots from varying angles and distances all within time restraints.
Individual Skill Work and Offense Breakdown
Maryland's primary offensive set, Thumbs, is broken down into shooting drills for both guards and posts. Posts work on Sikma moves at the block and scoring moves from the high post. Meanwhile, guards work on post feeds and scoring actions that happen after the pass, such as direct cuts and corner action. The 4 Series will help your team develop shots after using and refusing side ball screens, while posts work on scoring against different looks on rolls or pops.
Passing, Rebounding and Defense
Three additional drills work on passing, rebounding, and defense. The 5-4-3 Flawless drill is good passing drill that focuses on advancing the ball up the floor for easy baskets. The Triangle Rebounding Drill will help you teach players concepts related to gaining position for an offensive rebound, in addition to making contact to block out on defensive rebounds. The Pistons Drill requires that players focus on defensive concepts, including close outs, denying cutters and maintaining defensive position as the ball moves.
Press Break 1v1 & 1v2
Coach Frese refines her press offense using three breakdown drills to sharpen passing and dribbling skills, in addition to instructing on how and where to get open on the court. She shows angles and areas on the court you should and should not attack. Your players will learn how to get open in 1v1 situations and handle the ball to half court. Finally, athletes will learn how to get open in 1v2 situations and handle a trap without turning the ball over.
This open look into a Maryland basketball practice will give you a plethora of new drills and ideas to improve to your program.
