All Access Xavier Basketball Practice With Chris Mack
on June 13, 2015
if you are a pack line coach or WANTING to be a pack line coach, this all access is as good as it gets. mack is an excellent defensive teacher, really knows the offense, makes great points and communicates his teaching very well. 70-75% of this DVD is pack line drills/defensive drills and focus. You can tell this is a defensive season for this Xavier team. you''ll get 1-1, 2-2, 3-3 all the way up to 5-5. one thing they do is they have a drill on HOW to defend certain actions like cuts, screens and their philosophy on PnR. Again, Mack and his assistants do a really nice job of explaining and teaching. I think anyone can get something out of this DVD. One thing I want to harp on is that you can really JUST watch this DVD and you will be knowledgeable of the defense. It does a great job of building up the pack line and showing the final product. the build up and drills are key.
If you want info on his ball screen offense, look elsewhere, they have about a total of about maybe 50 some mins on his offense and they dont really go into much depth explaining it, its a continuity ball screen offense, mainly 3 out 2 in set up.
The warm up series/drills they do is really good, its active and gets all 15 players involved with different things, I really liked the way he and his staff ran practices, efficient and at times very intense.
I gave it 5 stars because rarely do we see an all access DVD go from the ground up, this is as close as it gets with everything in between, defending actions, with different drills for Gs and Fs. A great DVD and a great addition to any Pack Line coaches library
