with Kevin Pigott, Fordham Preparatory School (NY) Head Boys Basketball Coach
Coach Pigott has taken a very committed approach to the Princeton Offense and teaches it as well as any coach in the country. He presents a detailed look at the pieces that make up this dangerous offensive attack. Coach Pigott begins with the back door cut, the anchor of the Princeton Offense. Drill work incorporates chairs for defenders and works on back cuts from five different spots. Pigott emphasizes specific footwork for setting up the back cut including the planted outside foot, swing arms through, swim move and lead step. Footwork variation is a daily drill to strengthen the back door set up. The Princeton Lay-Up Drill addresses conditioning, ball handling and making the lay-up. The whole offense is taken apart, two positions at a time in drill format. This is an excellent way to teach and help players understand this intricate attack. Skill development drills include the BC drill, four corners passing, post entry, dribble reverse, shallow cut, skip pass and scissors drill. Pigott includes the wing flash play, which is a combination of the pieces shown throughout the presentation.
