Secondary Break and Early Offense

Mike Divilbiss is a well-respected women’s basketball coach who breaks down the secondary break in this video. Coaches will find teaching segments that introduce Coach Divilbiss’ philosophy on the secondary break as well as the details of all five positions and their responsibilities. Coach Divilbiss breaks his whole presentation down into five segments.

Secondary Break Basics

Coach Divilbiss introduces the secondary break, the basic setup, and rules:

  • Details of all five positions and responsibilities are covered
  • Why getting the ball into the post is important
  • Quick ball movement is a must as it leads to open 3-point attempts
  • Proper spacing and how to look for scoring chances is taught


Players must know four different reads:

  • Back screen for trail post
  • Down screen for when the back screen is overplayed
  • Back cut by trail post when ball reversal is denied
  • High ball screen for the point guard to create different scoring opportunities


Then, Coach Divilbiss teaches how to use the four reads in the secondary break:

  • It is important to score quickly with “2.5 cycles in 34 seconds”
  • The secondary break must use both sides of the floor
  • How to use the “pitch ahead” pass effectively


In this segment, Coach Divilbiss runs the secondary break against a defense and points out the following:

  • Primary fast break vs. secondary break
  • Keeping the ball in the middle of the floor to improve passing angles and to enhance ball movement
  • Why it’s important to pass the ball inside while allowing perimeter players freedom to shoot 3-pointers
  • Making perimeter players interchangeable

This is an excellent DVD for coaches that want to play at a higher tempo. Coach Divilbiss is thorough but keeps things simple in explaining how the secondary break can ignite your offense.
