Head Coach Andy Toole welcomes you to three days of intense, hardworking, no non-sense practices. Coach Toole gives you the inside look at how he develops his team on the offensive and defensive end.
With each practice Toole poses a new challenge to his players and he pushes them to meet that challenge and give a little more each day. Coach Toole demonstrates his use of statistical analysis and competitive spirit with each drill they incorporate in practice. You will love his intense nature and practice build-up that includes game-like intensity and structure.
On the offensive end, he uses station drills and his daily dozen drills to help improve dribble penetration moves within their offensive system. With each drive, Coach Toole teaches his players how to execute each cut and where the open man will be for a kick out. On both ends of the floor, he instills a good, quick decision making process and emphasizes that you must be able to think quickly to be successful at the collegiate level.
During practice, each drill has a certain point value and he charts which team wins every day in order to make his players practice with a competitive edge just as they would in a game situation. You will get a chance to see how they teach new set plays and how they flow into their main re-screen offensive motion.
Coach will demonstrate their line series in a 5-on-0 setting, then have his players turn right around and get three possessions running each set. He wants them to understand how to beat a pressure defense by moving the basketball, cutting hard through the middle of the lane, and getting the ball into the post off of their re-screen action. You will see a great progressive build up on the offensive end during their second day of practice.
Almost every defensive drill of the 2-hour practice incorporates the element of disadvantage. On every rebound, closeout, box out, or defensive transition, the defense is under pressure to react quickly and correctly. On offense, the prevailing theme is "penetrate and kick-out". Every possession coach wants his players to attack the defense, find open teammates, and make strong passes.
Today's stations focus on the defensive end, as the players work on the details of guarding hand-offs, weak side back screens, and stagger screens. Coach Toole revisits 4-on-4 shell drill, reaction shell drill, re-screening offense, and also teaches two more options of his 1-4 "Line" set.
Coach Toole does an excellent job teaching his players how to create a mentality of attacking their opponents on the offensive and defensive end. He works hard to get his players to play with great energy and always compete in practice so that they compete at a high level during their games.
