Mike Maker shares his overall offensive coaching philosophy as well as his time-honored strategies for attacking the man-to-man defense.
Using a hybrid Princeton style offense, he gives a detailed explanation of the use of pivots, reverse pivots and passing the basketball. His on-court demonstration continues with a "20 on 2" shooting drill designed to help players hit the net in a timed situation.
He also demonstrates how to work players in 3-on-0 and 4-on-0 situations before tying the fundamentals together in a 5-on-0 setting. His Princeton style of play emphasizes quick slips, ball screens, pick and pops, post ups and back cuts.
Coach Maker also shows how to integrate two good post players into this system and use their talents effectively. Though he touches on the development of his defense, the emphasis here is on practice strategies for enhancing the offense.
If your players could benefit from tips for screening and cutting or if you need a new plan for running an effective man-to-man offense, the attack strategies in this detailed DVD are just what you need.

Maker is as innovative of a coach as there is in the game and the DVD offers a good glimpse into his system. However, the system is so complex that the glimpse is really inadequate if you're looking to install the O. Very good DVD but if you're serious about putting in the attack, check out the all access tapes
This is a solid DVD all around, Coach Maker is a fine teacher and is fun to listen to in a clinic setting. The basic principles of his offense as well as drills that he uses are covered early on while the offense is touched upon later in the presentation. The overall message of "don't be married to your system" is clear throughout, Coach Maker lets his players play and do what they do best and its resulted in a rare 2 post Princeton look on offense in his last season. I was very tempted to give this a 5 but felt that there wasn't enough depth in any of the subjects covered to warrant the perfect score. Its still a great DVD, if your interested in Princeton stuff as well as some fresh takes on how to look at offense then this is a great one to look at.
