Really enjoyed watching the way Coach Williams conducts practice and how he handles his players. For anyone who wants to play uptempo with some sense of order, this would be a must add. I don't think it takes me and my review to tell you UNC can get out and run the floor but this opened my eyes to how they do it so well. They show some nice shell drills and off ball defending drills but the primary points I took from this was transition offense. A great add to my growing Championship Productions dvd collection.
What can I say? My favorite college coach with my favorite college team.
I was lucky enough to attend one of Coach Williams practices at the Dean Smith Center and, just like that one, this is a collection of amazing and very productive UNC practices, recommended for every coach on any level.
Coach Williams and his staff do an excellent job of teaching in this All Access video series. The players are constantly questioned what they saw of someone else, making them take ownership for the team. Each Coach has his role in practice and Coach Williams watches over the entire practice making sure each player knows what he's thinking and when. A great All Access series with a complete breakdown of their famous transition offense, freelance, and set play.
