Dana Altman: Using the High Post Offense to Attack Zone Defense

Very impressive DVD. I gave this DVD a 5 star rating. This is an update to coach Altman's other DVD "Complete Guide to the High Post vs any defense". In this DVD Coach starts the video off with a basic look at his spread man-to-man offense. He presents the cuts (1, 2,& 3)and movement of players when guarded man-to-man and shows how the post can get open for the drive or 15-foot jump shot. This is done without defense.

This is where the 5-star rating comes into play. When the presentation moves into the "Spread Zone" phase, coach presents this offense with 5v5. In this phase, coach gives you the How and the Why. If the defense takes away your 1st or 2nd option, coach shows you the 3rd and 4th option. The quick hitters for the zone offense are excellent. Coach gives you some plays that you an run after a timeout or just something to keep the defense guessing. This offense is a plus for high school because most of us lack a tall post player. For me, this offense was a big help for my H.S girls basketball team. We lacked size and the spacing allowed for us to score a lot of points on back door cuts, points from hand-offs from the post, and points from the pinch post area; plus we were able to have one offensive system. This is a great system to have if you lack a dominate post player. And if you have a dominate post player, this offense is a big plus for you because you have options to run a High-Low look or Post entry and have the opposite post player dive for a score. Nice system to have. I love this offense and I am looking to run it again over the summer and next season.
