Basketball Nuts and Bolts Strategy

The blogosphere has produced some very descriptive, educational material lately on various basketball strategies. If your looking to know more about motion offenses, moving without the ball, the 1-3-1 defense or inbounds passing, we've got links for you.

Triple Threat Basketball is a blog written by a high school hoops coach on the west coast. Most of the links below come from his site.

Triple Threat broke down his notes on Paul Hewitt's motion offense after attending one of Hewitt's camps. Prior to our beat down in Atlanta this year, I frankly never thought of Hewitt as having much motion in his offense. But he used his long wings effectively on back cuts and baseline work to thrash the Dawgs.

Here, he talks about the intangible of communication (Scroll past the Gator stuff). He also diagrams a nice play to get an open look for a 3 point shooting big man (see above). The diagramed play could've worked for Georgia prior to Newman's departure.

More interestingly, he talks about 4 cuts to make without the basketball and a great inbound play that Davidson used in the Tourney. He later continues on the topic of motion offenses with 5 Motion Offense Principals.

On the defensive side of the ball, Brian Cook of MGoBlog talks about Beilein's 1-3-1 Zone. Beilein (new UM coach/former WVU coach) is to 1-3-1 what Boehiem is to 2-3 zone. Brian's information is much more conversational than the Triple Threat content above.

Felton used quite a bit of 1-3-1. MGoBlog talks about the pluses and minuses of the system. (Image: MgoBlog)

Anyway...if you're interested in hoops scheme. Those make great interesting.
