A...Aim.

PRESENTING OUR EBOOK ON BASKETBALL'S MOST DIFFICULT OFFENSE TO GUARD:
ST. MARY'S DRIVE PLAY FOR POST. 01 dribbles left as 05 sets screen on 04s defender. 01 passes to 04 who has drive opportunity. The footwork on this drive must be taught and practiced or traveling may result. However, it is worth the practice because scoring drives can result.
From "Inside George Raveling's Head"
Coaches, players need to SEE what you’re talking about, more than HEAR what you’re talking about.
There is nothing more critical to your success than the individuals you choose to surround yourself with!
It’s a wise person who attempts to make themselves into an “expert’ in some phase of life!
No one gets anything worthwhile done alone!
The 2 greatest social forces that drive our present life style are technology and globalization

ALWAYS BLOCK OUT? The majority of players will do a better job rebounding when they use blockout techniques. However, many of the quicker and better jumpers will not rebound as well when they concentrate on block out. hey tend to fail to jump for the ball. For these select players, it is better to move in front of their offensive opponent, then "go get the ball." This was John Wooden's philosophy on his way to 10 national championships.
WHEN YOU HAVE TO HAVE A THREE
Ball begins in #2s hands. # 4 sets ball screen for #2 who fakes left, then drives right. On the drive, #4 turns
and sets screen for #1 to shoot 3. Keep this in mind....very few teams have a play after a baseline drive. Here, #2 drives the baseline, but it is a deliberate play.

FIVE KEYS ON OFFENSE AND FIVE KEYS ON DEFENSE FOR BOTH THE COACH AND THE PLAYER
* Push the Pace
* Take care of the basketball
* Attack inside/out
* Move ball unselfishly
* Help your teammates
* Get back on defense
* Protect the paint
* Closeout hard and contest shot
* Play aggressively without fouling
* Blockout and rebound
*One thing is very clear in the latter stages of a game when you are ahead: DON'T FOUL! This does not mean in the obvious situation--when you are ahead by three with seven seconds left for example when you might want to send your opponent to the line to prevent a 3 point attempt. Generally, late in the game, DON'T FOUL!

INSIDE FEED FROM THE FLEX OFFENSE
1 advances ball to flex entry position. 4 cuts as if to receive the pass from 1 to initiate pass. Instead, he cuts away as shown and 1 skip passes to 3 who passes to 5 in the low post area. Of course, this option could be run from either side of the floor. If 4 was defended by a player in foul trouble for exampe, 1 would dribble to left entry position and after 5 cut up and back down, 1 would skip pass to 2 to feed to 4.
