In today's 'pace and space' offenses, rebounding can be a critical factor in getting your team more scoring opportunities and limiting your opponent's chances to score.
Tubby Smith, one of only two basketball coaches in NCAA history to lead five different teams to the NCAA Tournament, lays out the rebounding and press offense drills and principles he has used to become one of the most successful college coaches in the country.
As an added bonus to the detail-oriented approach to rebounding fundamentals, this video also includes Coach Smith's press break principles and variations for getting the ball inbound against either a man-to-man or zone press.
By breaking down both offensive and defensive rebounding techniques, Coach Smith shows you how your team can win the possession battle on both ends of the court. Your players will learn how to use their hip to gain an advantage and tip the ball away from the defending player when they've been boxed out in the key. Smith also provides three effective and unique techniques for rebounding in a free throw situation.
You'll also see how to use both feet as pivots when boxing out, which will enable players to simultaneously focus on their man and put them in a position to see the ball and secure it. Finally, Smith covers outlet passing that will help your team transition into its offense after a rebound.
Do you need to raise the level of competitiveness of your team? Coach Smith makes a special point of demonstrating drills where players keep score and where there are clear winners and losers.
Press Break Offense
Coach Smith shows how to run multiple options out of the same initial press break set and covers both positioning and spacing principles that will enable your team to consistently beat a full court press.
With a focus on the two key areas of rebounding and not turning the ball over versus pressure, Coach Smith shows you how both skills can increase valuable possessions and scoring opportunities while building a tough, hard-nosed team at any level.
