Matt Lewis (Rental)-Motion Offense Concepts for Any Offensive System $18.99
Motion Offense Concepts That Can Be Applied to Any Offensive System Matt Lewis won the 2019 NCAA Division III national championship as the head coach at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh. His team won the 2019 WIAC regular season and, as a result, Lewis was awarded the NABC Division III Coach of the Year, 2019 D3hoops.com Coach of the Year, and the 2019 DIII News Coach of the Year awards. Coach Lewis’s career winning percentage of .906 heading into the 2019-20 season was the best among all active NCAA coaches. One of the things that make Lewis’s teams so good is their ability to run the motion offense. In this video, Coach Lewis covers footwork, passing, movement, and finishing in a coaching clinic setting. The drills and motion concepts he presents can help your team score more efficiently. Stride Stop The presentation starts with a drill that practices the stride stop, which puts players in position to either finish or quickly kick the ball out to the perimeter. Using a traditional jump stop requires an extra step which means more time. The stride stop puts a player in position to score or pass immediately which doesn’t give the defense much time to react and rotate. Attacking Players need to learn how to attack the basket and read the defense in a motion offense. Coach Lewis introduces a number of drills that incorporate attacking the basket, cutting to the basket, moving without the ball, and getting deep dribble penetration. When players attack, it forces defenses into help position which opens up a number of scoring opportunities. Roles/Menus Another important part of the motion offense is how to handle transition. Coach Lewis designates players as a “crash” or a “get back” player. Crash players, of course, have a responsibility to hunt for offensive rebounds. Get back players prevent a run-out in transition. Coach Lewis offers a ton of information for coaches looking to install a motion offense from scratch. Footwork, understanding cuts, and moving without the basketball – all basic skills – are covered in this outstanding presentation.
