Cheryl Reeve (Rental)-Loop & Elbow Offenses And Counter Sets $17.99
Cheryl Reeve: Loop and Elbow Offenses and Counter Sets With fewer teams playing with traditional big men, teams have to be able to get the ball inside. Minnesota Lynx head coach Cheryl Reeve takes you through two sets – Loop and Elbow – that she has developed through the years. It’s a motion-oriented half-court offense that uses multiple cutting and screening actions that confuse defenses. In the video, Coach Reeve starts with 5-on-0 demonstrations and builds up to 5-on-5 detailing the spacing and timing needed for success. Loop Series The Loop series starts with the traditional zipper action and then uses such moves as the flash cut that comes on the pass back to the post player who set the down screen of the zipper. Using the flash cut inverts the offense and creates an easy scoring opportunity for a wing who is being defended by someone not used to playing in the post. Other moves used include the flare screen, side ball screen, stagger screen, and double UCLA cut. Coach Reeve shares options out of the Loop that give you ways to take advantage of your personnel. Elbow Series Coach Reeve introduces the Elbow series from a Horns set. The series is a set of plays designed to create favorable matchups and it can be used in late-game situations where execution is critical. One play has the point guard use a UCLA cut after an entry pass to the post player. When this fails, a pin-down screen by the opposite post can generate an easy post-up opportunity. Reeve shows you double-down screens, handoffs, flex actions and more out of the Elbow series. She also touches on how to disguise Elbow plays using the same initial actions used in the Loop series. Using Counters At some point, defenses will catch on to what you are doing and come up with something that takes away some of the best actions of the Elbow and Loop. Coach Reeve goes through a number of counters in both series to take advantage of the defense. In the Loop series for example, Reeve has the player move to the corner looking for the ball if a defense anticipates a down screen. That simple adjustment gives the wing player a look for an open shot. Reeve also shows you how to run Loop to get into Elbow series plays. These multiple options keep opposing defenses guessing while getting your best players the scoring opportunities you want. Reeve is one of the WNBA’s most successful coaches and her exceptional detail in this video will not only help you gain a better understanding of flow and spacing on offense, but also help you to maximize player execution.
Cheryl Reeve (Rental)-Corner Offense, Set Plays, & Practice Drills $17.99
Cheryl Reeve: Corner Offense, Set Plays and Practice Drills Cheryl Reeve helped build the Minnesota Lynx franchise into one that has dominated the WNBA. Reeve has guided the Lynx to four WNBA championships and has twice won the league’s Coach of the Year award. A big part of her success comes from the drills you will see in this video. Not only do the drills help in player development, they also help to establish a certain culture, one that has helped the Lynx win. Practice Drills You will see Coach Reeve’s version of the classic layup drill and other full-court drills that help prepare players for her up-tempo style of play. These drills emphasize conditioning, competition, and efficiency. Players work on changing direction and attacking the basket off the dribble. Other drills include: Three-Man Weave: Works on spreading the floor and firing the ball ahead in transition while eliminating bad passes and missed layups. Secondary Drill: Learn to use ball screens in the secondary break and how to teach them to your players. Speed Drill: Work on quick outlet passes and advance passes to players running the floor in a continuous fast break drill. Corner Offense An alternative to the Triangle offense, the Corner offense is great for teams with good shooters, big guards that can post up, or teams that don’t have a dominant post player. Proper spacing spreads the floor for cuts to the basket and post up opportunities by guards. Coach Reeve breaks down the multiple options in her Corner offense, showing you how ball movement helps to open up scoring opportunities. Split screens, flare screens, and dribble handoffs are all used to create 3-point attempts or easy layups. You will also see how Coach Reeve counters certain defenses by using back door cuts, corner passes, and ball reversals to get two-man actions on the weak side. No matter what a defense throws at you, the Corner offense has an answer. Set Plays Coach Reeve demonstrates some set plays that she has used with great success. There are three plays out of the Corner alignment, two variations using spread ball screens, and an end-of-game play for a 3-point shot. The plays include: Cheek: This is a great play that uses a back screen to post up on a smaller guard or get an open 3-pointer. Thumbs Up: Using misdirection with a screen the screener action on the perimeter, this play can result in either a layup or 3-point shot. Punch: This is a great play to involve the weak side of the Corner offense and get an open look for your best shooter coming off a screen. This is a wonderful look at an offensive philosophy that has been used with great success at the game’s highest levels. It is simple enough that coaches at levels can benefit from the drills and plays taught in this presentation.
