with Mitch Buonaguro, Sienna University Head Coach; Long-time assistant to Rollie Massimino at Villanova, where they won NCAA Championship in 1985

Mitch Buonaguro has learned to adapt to the changing times in basketball and has infused modern day coaching techniques with his 30 plus years of time in the gym. In this Five Star Basketball presentation, Coach Buonaguro conveys his most essential Xs and Os from over 25 years of coaching experience.

With vivid examples, Buonaguro explains the importance of relating to your players, being well prepared for any situation, and how to be great in late game situations. The situations Buonaguro goes over are often overlooked aspects of the game that if you plan for and practice will give you an advantage over the majority of teams on your schedule.

Coach Buonaguro believes that it is important to get your players active and alert immediately as practice begins. He demonstrates the up-tempo "Celtic Drill" which he uses as a jump start for his team.

Another area stressed by this veteran coach is defensive transition. Multiple drills are taught and demonstrated to assist with this essential concept. His "3 Touch" Drill is a wonderful variation on the old weave drill where each player is forced to get out wide and finish strong at the basket.

Finishing a game strong and being prepared for any situation is the key to having a successful team. Coach breaks down his thoughts on each of these areas and then gives a treasure chest full of set plays to attack them. Whether it is a foul line play to get possession of the ball, a sideline play to get a quick 3 or a last second full court set to win the game, coach seems to cover every situation possible to win the close ones late in the game. In a close ball game, the better prepared your team is, the better chance they have at coming out on the winning end.

Coach Buonaguro has also worked for years and developed relationships with many successful coaches. In this DVD he takes many of the lessons that he has learned from them and deals out a tremendous amount of knowledge on how to work with today's players. This area is repeated throughout the video as he stresses that the old school style of coaching just doesn't work anymore.

No matter what the situation, your team will be prepared to win the game with this terrific set of game ending plays. His simple, yet extremely effective plays are easy to teach and can be used at any level of basketball. With Coach Buonaguro's late game preparation, your team will be able to handle any situation when the game is on the line.
