It doesn't matter what offensive system you run whether it be motion, set plays, or ball screen action the keys are the same -- your spacing, your pace of play, and your teams ability to screen.

In this on court clinic demonstration, Ben Jacobson takes you through two drills he uses to emphasize the main aspects of spacing, pace and screening. The goal of these drills is to force help - get the second defender to come out of position, which frees up a teammate for a shot. The sooner you can get the floor spaced, the sooner you force the defense to help - and they have farther to go, which creates spacing you need for a good look at the basket.

These drills start 3-on-3 half court where the players are working on execution in these areas by performing down screens, UCLA screens and the back screens on one side of the floor. Keeping the players in a confined space promotes communication by your players and forces them to wait for their screen. You then add the ability to score while keeping score. Coach Jacobson then progresses into 4-on-4 half court where players are paired on each side of the floor and must work together.

Jacobson then moves into some of his team's transition offense quick hitters. He demonstrates four quick hitters and then has the players demonstrate the plays 5-on-0 and then 5-on-5. Proper spacing opens up a low post shot, a quick two-man game and other actions off your set plays. Each time he builds on the plays by having the players transition up and down the floor; coaching them through the action while stressing spacing, pace and screening action. He also shares two quick hitters he uses out of a box set.

He finishes by answering questions on screening, handling switching defenses, play calling, getting the ball inside and offensive philosophy.

This DVD will give you insight and ideas that can be used in any offensive system to open up the floor to give your players some freedom to play.

The other dvds Jacobson has out are great. If you run a lot of 4 out 1 in offense this has some good sets in it. Has a few plays to get your post player deep in the lane without posting up for a long time. Some good misdirection in his plays.

I was disappointed with this dvd. His other 2 releases were excellent, however.
