In rebuilding the TCU program, Coach Dixon uses a spread 4-Out, 1-In attack that suits his current roster. You will see how Coach Dixon uses this set in his offensive attack as well as the movements and key coaching points of his transition and motion offense. Transition Offense Coach Dixon emphasizes getting the ball up the floor as quickly as possible. Four of his players are what he calls “bust-out” guys, meaning any of the four can handle the ball and push it up the floor. The others fill their positions while always looking ahead for an open man. The point guard and the trailer’s role in transition is critical. If the trailer is ahead of the point guard, he is taught to set a ball screen. If not, the trailer looks for a pass from the point guard. This mentality of getting up the floor quickly often creates early scoring opportunities. When the offense doesn’t score in transition, the opportunity to flow right into the secondary offense or motion is still available. Half Court Sets Coach Dixon also presents a number of half-court sets that can jump start your offense. He uses screens, dribble hand-offs, and constant motion out of a 2-Out, 3-Down set to start. The offense starts with an open wing with screens to that side. These sets can be disguised by starting them from different areas of the floor making the offense less predictable. You will see a variety of elbow options with screens as well as how you can switch right into a Horns look. Full Court Quick Hitter It is imperative that any basketball program have the tools to get a full court basket as quickly as possible.

Pre-Game Shooting is another drill that simulates scoring in transition. Players catch on the move and use various moves to gain an advantage and score at the rim or create space for a pull-up jumper. Guard Drills One of the key’s to TCU’s turnaround has been guard play. Dixon builds complete guards with a series of four competitive shooting drills that force players to make shots in game-like situations.

Posts develop a go-to move, a counter move, another counter move, and perfect their footwork in the paint. Being versatile means being able to score away from the basket, so posts work on their shooting range. The Circle Shooting drill is the perfect way to develop touch around the rim while also extending one’s shooting range. The final post drills are those that develop decision making skills when coming off a pick and roll. Players work through a progression of moves out of ball screens like short rolls, slips, pops, and more. The idea is to develop a well-round, complete post player.
