Geno Auriemma's name is recognized by the basketball community worldwide. In this on-court demonstration clinic, Coach Auriemma presents 14 half and full court drills for offense and defense that are a part of his daily practice. Auriemma believes that an emphasis on the ability to pass, catch, dribble, shoot and react is the key to building a good offense. His no-frills practice session begins with fundamental ball handling drills with and without defenders. These drills focus on getting to the basket quickly, post and perimeter skills, on-ball screens, hand-offs and more. Auriemma uses three-on-three offensive breakdowns to demonstrate the post feed, cutting and spacing the floor. This approach to building offense is simple to follow, saves practice time and promotes team play.

A word of caution, like the other reviewer said, there is quite a bit of overlap if you have seen Coach Auriemmas other offensive videos. There are some variations of things but all in all it is a lot of the same stuff from High Post. Having said that it is all good solid information and there are some nice little nuggets from the mind of an excellent coach. Certainly check it out if you haven't seen Coaches other videos, but if you have then its not a great investment.
If you have his previous DVDs 70 Minute Player Development & his Complete Guide to the High Post you will not see a lot of new stuff. For those that have these DVDs the only thing new is the last 15 minutes which covers transition.
I attended this session in Las Vegas (May '08). Coach is informative, structured, and intense. He provides a lot of valuable information. Even though I attended this clinic, I still bought the DVD to review the drills, strategies, and techniques. Whether you coach boys or girls [I coach both at the HS level], this DVD works.
