In this All Access look at the Syracuse University basketball program you will get an inside look at how Jim Boeheim builds the foundation for his famous 2-3 zone defense and his penetrating half court offense. Coach Boeheim initiates this series of practice sessions with simple explanations of how he organizes each practice.
The practices include warm up drills that address agility and offensive and defensive principles, schemes and drills that put Syracuse at the top of polls year in and year out.
Take advantage of this unique opportunity to explore Jim Boeheim's philosophy on practices and program building!
In an extended 5-on-5 scrimmage, Coach Boeheim works on a variety of offensive and defensive schemes to explore all options and game scenarios. The practice closes with the Orange executing a series of set plays.
On the court, the coaches run the players through developmental drills for their positions. The guards work on offensive tactics, while the post players continue to develop the offensive and defensive skills necessary for success. The session includes a focus on defending in the 2-3 zone versus the high screen. This essential concept is tirelessly taught to ensure the success of the Syracuse zone. Coach Boeheim puts it all together in the 5 on 5 portion of the practice where he emphasizes 2-3 zone, half-court man-to-man, and full court man-to-man run-and-jump defenses.
Moving to the court, the emphasis is on how to play the back of the 2-3 zone. This is achieved with a series of breakdown drills showing the slides and responsibilities that are key to its success.
Offensive drills are conducted showing the players how to finish when close to the basket. At the end of practice the team runs through a scouting report on how their next opponent will attack the Syracuse zone defense and what they will do to defend it.
The individual skill drills are based on Syracuse's offensive sets and focus on short corner power lay-ups ("cheat step"), as well as the high-low game for Syracuse's "double fist" set. To deepen the understanding and to work on defensive skills in the 2-3 zone, the staff revisits the 5-on-3 shell drill for forwards. The team first runs through some of their offensive sets in a 5-on-0 segment before going full-court 5-on-5.
