There are five "non-negotiables" that form the bedrock of Dick Bennett's philosophy in his storied coaching career. Players learn and execute by what specifics the coach teaches and what is emphasized. Coach Bennett's list of what he emphasizes includes intangibles, convert to defense, rebound on defense and sureness with the ball. Intangible areas begin with humility - the knowledge of self vs. what others think he is. Passion is a focus toward the task ahead with a total commitment. Unity, which comes from scripture, is the true way to greatness. Servant hood is a trademark of the way Bennett likes the game played and screening, being in the right place and passing are all skills that exemplify servant hood. Thankfulness is another intangible in Bennett's system. Progress comes from acceptance of losing and how it is handled. A loss of poise, consistency, focus are indicators that players must avoid and can be accomplished with being true to the five intangibles. Teaching areas that make up Coach Bennett's coaching philosophy are fundamentals, roles on offense, stopping penetration and recovering and trapping the post. Drills are demonstrated to illustrate intangibles and to aid in teaching them - which is the core and focal point of this excellent DVD.

Dick Bennet is an extremely insightful teacher/coach of basketball. He shares 40 years of knowledge, but knows what to focus on and keeps things simple. His philosophy on recruiting is a great starting point, but I particularly enjoyed his breakdown of post defense.
