Shaka Smart's 2013 Basketball Coaches Clinic

with Shaka Smart, Virginia Commonwealth University Head Coach;
2011 Clarence Gaines National Coach of the Year; 2011 Final Four appearance; four 27-win seasons (2009-2013)

See how Shaka Smart, one of the brightest coaches in the game today, builds a winning program. This presentation gives you access to an early season practice. Over the span of 150 minutes, the Rams run a fast-paced workout with a focus on individual and team defense, breaking down offensive skills and learning to execute their game plan in competitive scenarios.

Coach Smart's teams are known for their intense pressure defense. In this session, they work on trapping and defending against pin down screens. They use 3-on-3 to develop their full-court defensive pressure skills. Players guard the ball, defend the ball side, help side, etc., focusing on foot fakes and jumping to the ball to understand that they are connected on the court and working together. The "Rapid Fire" drill works on closeout techniques, teaching correct form and building the habit of a correct closeout. Later in the session, players run a weak side closeout drill.

Coach Smart uses stations to emphasize various fundamentals of half-court defense. Stations maximize practice time by using assistant coaches to teach multiple skills in a short period of time. Assistant coaches run separate stations and teach defensive techniques that focus on defending pin down screens, help-side perimeter defense and guarding the weak side exchange. They run several different defensive shell drills for man and zone defense, and disadvantage drills to train players to think one pass ahead and to work on rotations. At the end of the session, they work on taking a perfect charge.

All skill development is done within the framework of the Rams' high/low offense. Watch as Coach Smart teaches post players to steal and see the various low post moves that they develop. Perimeter players work on cutting and dribble penetration. From that they work on the shots and layups they get from the penetration. Various competitive shooting drills are run at different times throughout the practice.

Later in the session, players walk through their transition, zone and player-to-player offenses. From 5-on-0 to playing live 5-on-5, these settings are used to teach both offensive and defensive principles.

In the second part of the presentation, Coach Smart takes the floor and discusses the principles and core values of his program. He also explains why he believes his teams play so hard for him. He talks about the "havoc" style of play and how it starts on the first day of practice with full-court 1-on-1 and how he builds from there. All aspects of the VCU defense are discussed during a question-and-answer session . Coach Smart discusses a variety of topics, including the statistics tracked throughout every practice, the fundamentals of a defensive trap, building "winners" and building the defense from 1-on-1 up to 5-on-5, before demonstrating the rotations of the program's three core trapping systems.

Shaka Smart's 2013 Basketball Coaches Clinic: Bruce Pearl: Pressure Defense and Sideline Out of Bounds Plays

with Bruce Pearl, Auburn University Head Coach;
former University of Tennessee Head Coach; 2x SEC Coach of the Year; 2010 Elite Eight, 2008 SEC Regular Season champions, 1995 NCAA Div. II champions (Southern Indiana)

Auburn Head Coach Bruce Pearl covers a variety of topics ranging from creating a team identity, the benefits of implementing a trapping, pressing defensive system, and the ability to score on inbounds plays when the opportunity presents itself.

Coach Pearl begins by teaching his famed 1-2-1-1 full-court defensive pressure system. Coach Pearl's teams have always been known as great pressing teams and in this session you'll see why other teams dread facing his 1-2-1-1 press. He takes players onto the court and goes through each position, the type of player to put in it, roles and responsibilities in the press, and how to determine which post player would be better at the back of the press.

You'll get details like

  • the two types of passes that can beat the press
  • the best time to steal the ball
  • where steals will most likely happen

You'll also learn how to defend against various offensive formations, including opponents that attempt to attack the pressure via 1-guard, 2-guards, 3-guards, and the 4-across formation.

Pressing defense exhausts and disrupts opponents, makes your team aggressive and can change the pace of the game to help your team come from behind.

Coach Pearl also provides three sideline out-of-bounds sets that lead directly into the flex offense that he ran at Tennessee. You'll learn how to effectively use these sets against a man or zone defense.

Coach Pearl closes the session with a discussion on how to pressure and disrupt offensive inbound plays via defensive pressure. With each player focused on maintaining inside position, jamming gaps, defensive switching and "guarding two-with-one" spacing, Pearl demonstrates the art of altering an offense's play design by effecting the timing and spacing of the offensive movement.

Learn 10 key techniques you can use with any offensive system to successfully play against a zone defense. Discover an offensive system that can be used to teach players how to attack gaps and how to screen to force the zone to shift and create weaknesses within it.

Coach Gillen demonstrates how to successfully attack any zone formation like the 2-3, 1-2-2, 2-1-2, and 1-3-1 zone. Several zone "specials" are presented, including one that you can use at the end of a game when you're not sure which defense the opponent will run.
