with Fred Hoiberg, Chicago Bulls (NBA) Head Coach;
former Iowa State University Head Coach; Back-to-Back Big 12 Tournament Champions (2014-15);
2012 Big 12 Co-Head Coach of the Year;
10-year NBA veteran and former executive with the Minnesota Timberwolves;
In 2012, Coach Hoiberg engineered the biggest turnaround in Big 12 history (23 wins, including an opening round win over the defending national champion in the 2012 NCAA Tournament); In 2013 Iowa State lead the nation in 3-Pointers Per Game
Take the opportunity to watch Fred Hoiberg put his players through an off-season shooting workout utilizing drills from some the NBA's all-time best shooters - Larry Bird, Chris Mullin, Reggie Miller and others. These strategies helped Coach Hoiberg become the leading 3-point percentage shooter in the NBA in 2005. Now he uses them with his own team.
Coach Hoiberg begins with warm-up drills for shooters that emphasize footwork, balance and finishing every shot. The workout continues with 10 more shooting drills that have conditioning elements, game-like shooting for situations like coming off screens, transition shooting, finishing at the rim and shooting off the catch.
After each drill has been completed, Coach Hoiberg's shooters complete a round of threes: Players make two three-pointers from five different spots on the floor (corner, wing, top, wing, corner) and then come back around making one three-pointer at each spot. After the round of threes, players must make five free throws to continue to the next drill.
Coach Hoiberg's is a firm believer that players are made better in the off-season. With enough time and effort, these drills will create the muscle memory and mental toughness to turn your athletes in top shooters.
