Get the tools you need to develop an effective center for your team.
Greg Marshall takes you inside the Wichita State program and shows you how they work on the skill development of their centers in order to have a player who is complete in all aspects of the position. This one-hour workout consists of game like drills that will enhance your post player's game skills. A focus on the position of the their feet for both the offensive player and defensive player is discussed at key times in each drill.
The Warm-Up During the warm-up, the centers go through a series of drills that also work on game-like aspects. All key movements are exaggerated to help create muscle memory and get players loose. Included is a Mikan series with big and heavy balls to get them stronger.
Post SeriesThe Drop Set Series focuses on the footwork and court positioning necessary to properly execute the drop step and get the defender out of position. Jump hooks follow the drop set series. Another set teaches centers how to recognize the double team and how to react.
PassingDevelop your centers to become great passers. Good passing centers not only make their teammates better, but also become a greater threat offensively. The use of the heavy ball is emphasized here as the players go through making a series of fundamental passes to become a better passer out of the post. This is followed up with an outlet drill where Coach Marshall demands his centers make the right pass and a great pass once they get a defensive rebound.
1-On-1The Finish Drill is a great competitive drill that starts on the elbow and works both offense and defense where neither player has an advantage at the start. The next drill has the centers playing live 1-on-1 in the post continuously.
Coach Marshall and his staff are very technical throughout this video. They are very clear in their expectations and show how to positively correct flaws in players. This is a must have video for teams that not only run four out one in motion offense, but can also be used by any team because of the technicality that is talked about and demonstrated throughout the video.
This video will enhance your team's competitive nature while developing your center position.

This item also belongs to the following series!
I love how this one is structured and so different from the other videos (perhaps obviously). The warmup phase is impressive to me, a simple idea that is expanded and can be tweaked even more with your own imagination. The post series is very good with some teaching points that I had never thought of which is always a great thing! I also thought it was great how they practiced outlets and passing with their bigs, again a simple idea where they use a drill I haven''t seen before! I''d recommend this one to coaches looking for ways to develop their big guys and a few good drills your whole team can use.
This is a five star DVD. What warrants such a high rating? Coach Marshall and his staff are excellent teachers and constantly teaching and instructing the players. During the post series phase of the DVD, the basic drop step is taught. Coach and his staff are getting players to work the angles on the drop step and keeping the ball away from the defender. Again, these are areas that are not new but it is the quality of the teaching/coaching that is important.
The rebounding phase. Coach and his staff are again working with basic drills of rebounding but it is the quality of the instruction. Coach is talking to a player about proper outlet angles and catching the ball at its highest point. This just shows that the coach wants his players to get better because he is there to answer questions.
There are solid drills in this DVD, the 1 one 1 portion, is excellent. The post series is excellent, and the passing phase, all excellent. This is a solid DVD well worth the money and a 5-star rating. I can't wait to get the other two DVDs.
This video is very good. Great drills to work with your big men..
