Self uses the white board diagrams to progressively build each layer of their secondary break. He also provides you with two baseline out of bounds plays you can run against a man or zone defense designed to get you an easy lay-up.

This is a must have for any coach looking for a new offensive system. With eight new players learning the offense, you get a great look at how to teach and install the Kansas offense into your program.

Open Practice: Zone Offense

with Bill Self, Kansas Head Coach;
2008 NCAA National Champions, 2012 NCAA Runner Up, 9x Big 12 Regular Season Champions (2005-2013), 2012 Naismith College Coach of the Year, John R Wooden Legends of Coaching Award (2013); 500 Career Wins

Bill Self, University of Kansas head coach, offers up two zone offenses to add to your offensive playbook. While most offenses struggle to score or find gaps within a zone offense, Coach Self gives you two unstoppable zone offenses that provide main scoring options along with several counters you can use to make your offense unstoppable. With the primary goal to get four defenders to play just three of your offensive players, his zone offenses create confusion, scrambles, and open shots that will devastate your opposing coach.

In Stationary, Coach Self uses a quick moving zone offense to create scoring opportunities in the post and utilizing the short corner to stretch the defense. Your players will find gaps within the defense allowing you to score around the rim or look for a quick striking three point shot. Self teaches the "hot potato" concept to demonstrate how to move the ball quickly against a 2-3 zone.

Slash is Coach Self's answer to the 3-2 and the 1-3-1 zone defense. Slash is more intricate than Stationary, but just as easy to pick up for players and just as effective. In Slash, Coach Self uses three cutters to fill four open spots along the perimeter. Self utilizes primary and secondary cutters through the lane to create an element of surprise in the lane. He uses 5v5 demonstrations to teach his young team how to expose the weaknesses of a 2-3 zone.

Coach Self completes his zone offensive package by demonstrating the Kansas press offense you can use against a zone press. Your team will dissect your opponent's pressure defense by taking advantage of the middle of the court allowing you to score lay-up after layup in the open court.

This is a great DVD to add to your collection if you are looking for a zone offense that attacks your opponent's weaknesses and creates scoring opportunities around the rim.
