"We start in a 2-3 low set, pass to the wing, flash the

"Hello everybody!. Against an agressive 1-3-1 press is kind of hard to play, so we need to train this offense very hard, correcting each time our players make a mistake. We really surprise them with our first sentence when we start practicing the BOX…"

"Simple Offense-GAP. 2 bigs on the blocks, high post player, and two guards splitting the top. Guards look for diagnol pass to big on block. Any time pass is entered to high post they immediately face and look for one of the bigs. Important guards…"
"I have used 2 guard up top, 5 in the middle, 3 & 4 in the corners. I have had team where we stressed looking to hit the diagonal pass after a reversal. This works real well for teams that don't rotate very good. I have a team now however…"
"If my team is having trouble beating a 1-3-1 zone, I try to get some baseline screening trying to get the ball into the post - either via baseline drive or pass off a screen on the defender in the middle.

"How to attack a 1-3-1 ? Very Easy. Your P-G and 4 are at the top. Your 5 is at the free throw line. Your "best shooters...usually your 2 & 3 will be on opposite baselines (usually about 1 ft inside 3 point line). Your shots and mode of…"

I am a 23 year old student finishing up my Parks and Recreation Degree at Northern Arizona University. I played two years of college basketball at Texas Lutheran University before reoccurring knee problems forced me to finally take a different approach to the game. I was a one year starter, named team captain as a Sophomore, and a two time American Southwest Conference Scholar-Athlete award winner. My knee troubles have actually become more of a blessing than a curse. I have always known that I wanted to become a college basketball coach, but my recent experiences have shown me that coaching truly is my passion. I spent two years coaching the freshman, and assisting the varsity, at Flagstaff High School. I also coached a 15u AAU team and have had the opportunity to work at and run various basketball camps and tournaments throughout the state. Currently I am working as the student assistant under Coach Mike Adras at Northern Arizona University. This summer I will be working as an intern at the IMPACT Basketball training center in Vegas. Then I will be heading back to Arizona to be the Head Assistant at Yavapai Junior College. I see basketball as a tool to open up numerous different aspects of one's life and am constantly looking to grow and learn from this amazing sport.

Glad to hear you're working with NAU. When Montana comes around on the schedule, please tell Tinks and Hill I said hello. Adras probably doesn't remember me from my time at Eastern, but tell him hello for me anyway.
Hey Kadin! Things are going... We dropped two this past weekend at Ozarks (let that one get away from us) and at UT Dallas. This week we've got LeTourneau and ETBU at home. Hopefully we learned some lessons and we will play better.
