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.
The staff starts building the famous 2-3 Zone with two defenders learning to play the top of the zone against a variety of situations. You'll see 2-on-2, 3-on-3 and 4-on-4 drills that teach the man-to-man principles that help make the Syracuse zone defense so dominating. This leads into a controlled 5-on-5 full court scrimmage in which both squads are exposed to a variety of half-court and full-court defenses.
This practice provides unique insight into understanding defensive rotations on the weak side against ball side penetration and fighting through down screens. You will see a defensive drill progression focusing on the back row of the zone with proper close-out technique and the correct rotation in 2-on-2, 3-on-3, and 4-on-4 match-ups.
This disc begins with the coaching staff answering questions about the 2-3 zone, player development, how practice evolves throughout the season and motivational tactics within the practice. On the court, the guards work on offensive tactics, while the post players continue to develop their offensive and defensive skills. The session includes a focus on defending in the 2-3 zone versus the high screen, which is essential to ensure the success of the Syracuse zone. Coach Boeheim puts it all together in the 5-on-5 setting where he emphasizes 2-3 zone, half-court man-to-man, and full court man-to-man run-and-jump defenses.
This disc begins with a valuable discussion with Assistant Coach Gerry McNamara who was also part of Syracuse's National championship team. His insight as a coach and former player adds tremendous support to understanding what the Orangemen are all about. 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.
With a big game only days away, Syracuse puts all the pieces together in this practice. This practice session is a split of individual skill work, as well as extensive, controlled 5-on-5 full court scrimmages, where you witness Coach Boeheim's genius at work. 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 work on defensive skills in the 2-3 zone, the staff revisits the 5-on-3 shell drill for forwards. The team runs through some offensive sets in a 5-on-0 segment before going full-court 5-on-5.

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!
Good 2-3 zone breakdown. Didn''t see boeheim coach much. Doesn''t give you the schedule breakdown of the practice. I just would have liked to have seen more. Not bad not great. If your looking for his zone stuff you can save your money and buy the zone DVD.
You'll see a lot of breakdown drills for their offense and (of course) also defense. The last mentioned is so great. If you want to play zone, this is a must have. In my team I play regular man-man but still got some of these drills in order to learn movement and rotations. After all man-man and zone got some commons! In my opinion this is one of the best All-access DVD:s and the defensive parts are tremendous!
A very good dvd. I got a lot out of it. hearing things from a coaches perspective concerning practice, how to handle newcomers to your system, and how to develop winning attitudes was a high point for me. Also, seeing actual breakdown drills of the 2-3 made it worth the purchase. I was very satisfied with my purchase
