Whitcomb is a former pro basketball general manager and scout who is currently the head coach at the West Michigan Aviation Academy. His Elevation Offense opens up the floor and, in this video; he shows you how to flow right into it from transition and inbounds plays. Structure and Essentials of the Elevation Offense Coach Whitcomb begins on the whiteboard and diagrams the Elevation Offense. It all begins from the Horns alignment, which creates a consistent structure. Whitcomb explains the multiple options for entry and then uses on-court demonstration to reinforce the concepts. Players are taught several “automatics” that help them pick up the idea of the continuity. Coach Whitcomb goes deep into the many opportunities available for scoring. Spacing the floor helps to open up baseline drives. You will learn other calls and reads that allow for scoring off the primary screening actions in the Elevation Offense. There are also opportunities to create isolation situations and exploit weaknesses in opposing defenses. Sets and Breakdown Drills of the Elevation Offense Basketball Whitcomb demonstrates seven different inbound plays, five from the baseline and two from the sideline. The baseline plays use a box alignment and Coach Whitcomb shows you how each play flows directly into the Elevation Offense. The sideline plays do the same. Four breakdown drills are shown to help teach and build the offense. Guards learn to shoot off the screen and attack on drives. Posts work to get better at finishing at the rim while slipping the screen. The 5-on-0 Drill allows players to go through all the scoring options available in the Elevation Offense. Coach Whitcomb’s system is a great way to run a continuity offense using passing, replacing, and special screens. The offense takes away help defenders in almost every situation and is a must-see for coaches looking for new ideas or a completely new offensive system.

Coach Tyler Whitcomb uses his 4-1 defense to take multiple shots at opposing offenses. Whitcomb uses the 4-1 defense to create opportunities for his teams to trap the corners and trap the wings as additional looks. This demonstration will give you a full guide on how to run the 4-1 defense to confuse your opponents. Positioning Whitcomb starts by discussing the importance of Whitcomb's defensive plan with his most important player. The defense's "middle-linebacker," or center, is responsible for communicating with the four other players about where they should position themselves when the ball moves. The "cornerbacks" are the players closest to the wings. They are responsible for covering the corners and taking any initial passes to the wings. The remaining two players must cover the elbows of the point guard and add length to the top zone with a second defender. The ball's position allows for lob passes, and the defense of the short corner on the ball side against an offense with a 2-1-2 line. The middle linebacker tries to steal the ball, while the opposing side cornerback robs the basket of any attempt at a lob. Corner The whole purpose of the 4-1 zone defense system is to encourage passes into the corner. The trap is set when the ball touches the ground. You'll then see Coach Whitcomb explain the roles of the remaining three players. The elbow defenders will be responsible for preventing any return pass from the trap or pass to the highpost. Two defenders will be assigned to the remaining cornerback. The cornerback should also be aware of any backdoors or flash cuts that may be attempted by the offense. Whitcomb explains that the defense simulates rotations against an offense in live action. Rotations against a 3-1-3-1 formation are also shown, where communication is essential by the middle linebacker. Multiple Looks The 4-1 defense can cause more problems for the offense by changing the way traps are set. One example is a "Blast" call. This is where the point guard is held hostage by two middle defenders as they bring the ball to the front court. Fire is the opposite of Blast. This call allows the ball to be passed to the wing, where it will be caught on the catch. The 4-1 defense has the advantage of being able to adjust to the offense's alignment. The defense uses color coding to create different ways it can adapt to the offense's alignment. These colors are: Orange - Change the alignment to create a 2-3 zone look (like Syracuse's runs). Blue - Adjust alignment to create a 1-3-1 look. Green - Change the alignment to 1-2-2 zones. Purple - Change the alignment to a zone of 3-2. You can create an extra look by starting in a 4-1, then jumping into a man to-man defense. This is usually done by calling out the name and number of a player. Your program will benefit from this comprehensive and in-depth look at the 4-1 defense. Coach Whitcomb takes the time to demonstrate a complex defense. 44 minutes. 2021.
