Two-time NCAA Championship Coach Billy Donovan invites you to sit in on the Gators' first three-days of practice of the 2011-12 season, a season which saw the Gators advance to the NCAA Tournament's Elite 8.
As his team prepares for the season, Coach Donovan focuses on building up their offensive and defensive styles of play. Watch as he breaks down the Spread Pick and Roll Offense along with his Motion High Offense, builds his offense and defense using a shell drill, improves his post players, and much more.
As Coach Donovan prepares his players for their first exhibition game, he does a lot of teaching and building up their style of play. He demonstrates the various offensive actions that lead into their motion high offense along with their spread pick and roll action.
He starts off with five man offensive drills (actions). This 5-on-0 situation has the team running through various action for each player starting with the big men in the post all the way through a pick and roll followed with a double screen. After going through their set plays and motion offense, Donovan starts to build his defensive style of play with a driving line drill that has his defense continuously working on closeouts and squaring up on the ball to contain dribble penetration. Donovan moves to transition drills that combines getting back in transition and disrupting the fast break.
The second half of practice focuses on the offensive end. He uses Circle the Wagon Drill to train his players to get the ball into the post to score. He wants to take advantage of his post players scoring opportunities and to establish an inside presence that will lead to open shots on the perimeter.
The practice ends with a full court press attack. Donovan emphasizes the importance of getting into the press right after a bucket is scored and to sprint back when the press is broken.
Coach Donovan spends a lot of time during the second practice going 4-on-4 or 5-on-5. He runs a 4-on-4 shell defense to create competition, run offensive plays and sets, and teach his players hot to defend the screening actions they will see.
He builds his players help-side defense using a Scramble Drill that teaches his defenders to protect the basket when a defender gambles for a steal or is beat off of the dribble from the wing. Players will learn how to stunt and get back to their man while also learning how to read the offense and take a charge.
In 5-on-5 situations, Donovan uses end of game transition posting to teach his players how to get the ball into the post off of a transition set or a secondary break opportunity. In this setting, the focus is on the post, but he still wants his players to understand they need to create without forcing off of the spread pick and roll offense.
Coach Donovan finishes his second practice by working on the defensive end of the floor. He practices falling back into several different defensive alignments including a 2-3 zone defense and an aggressive pressuring man-to-man defense.
Donovan continues to emphasize defensive principles. He teaches his players how to defend various offensive actions, such as the UCLA Offense and Flex Offense, and teaches them how to defend different screening actions from every angle of the floor.
Coach Donovan finishes with a great set of post player/guard break down drills that fit right into his offensive tactics. You will have your guards and post players working together and on the same page with these great break down options. He ends the practice with "Circle The Wagons Live," which takes the transitions lessons and puts them in game context in a controlled scrimmage.

All Access videos are designed to allow viewers from all over the world to see how successful coaches run their practices in a "live" practice setting. All Access videos allow viewers to see the practices un-edited and in real-time. You will see how top coaches run their drills, interact with their team and staff, how they motivate their team, the cue words they use, the atmosphere of the practice and how practices are structured from day to day. Many coaches visit successful colleges and high schools to watch practice. But if you live out of state or out of the country, visiting another coach's gym can be costly. That's why we created the All Access Practice Series of videos -- to bring the practices to you!
This is one of my favorite all access dvd's that I have, there are some great transition/fast break drills as well as some good close out drills. Everything was competitive with a consequence for losing. They also went through some situation and time/score drills plus pressing and working on some 2-3 zone, which they played a lot of that year.
