The luxury of motion Puts the ball in best players’ hands Moves and removes help defense Offers numerous counters and options to exploit a defense Mover Blocker Offense Setup Coach Jicha details the basic structure of the offense. Players fit into one of two roles: blocker or mover. Coach Jicha explains the positioning and responsibilities of each player. Blockers, for example, must learn how to carry out a variety of screens for the guards to get open looks. Jicha emphasizes the two screens that are used the most – the pin down and flare. The role of the movers is also addressed. Coach Jicha explains how they are positioned, how they move, and how they initiate the offense. For the most part, movers play 3-on-3 basketball with their defenders and then use the blockers to attack the defense and get open shots. With the positional responsibilities taken care of, Coach Jicha moves on to the basic motion of the offense which is called Circle. Everything is built off of Circle. There are five main areas where players can get scoring opportunities. They include: 3-point attempt off a pin down screen Dump inside to the post Back screen layup Re-screen on the opposite side Two-man game Starting & Scoring in the Mover Blocker Offense Coach Jicha shows you five ways to initiate the offense against different defenses. Players will use straight pop outs, crosses, bumps, L-cuts, and dribble hand-offs to start the offense. Then, Coach Jicha covers the nine areas of attack to create scoring opportunities. These include back screens, flares and 7-cuts. From there, Jicha demonstrates how to score in the offense. He shows you seven types of the two-man game, four re-screen options, and two alternatives for the offense in a secondary set. This is the perfect offense for any junior high or middle school or higher level that has only two or three true scorers. It is also great for teams that face opponents that play great help defense.

Tom Jicha (Rental)-How To Run The Michigan Two Guard Front Offense (jicha) $19.99
How to Run the Michigan Two Guard Front Offense Learn how to run the two guard front offense made famous by former West Virginia and Michigan head coach John Beilein in this video by John A. Ferguson HS (FL) head coach Tom Jicha. Coach Jicha, formerly as Sunset HS (FL), shares his interpretation of the perimeter-based offense. It is designed to help smaller teams that lack a post player more scoring opportunities. Coach Jicha reveals his three main sets: Motion, Shuffle, and Chin and blends them together to show you why his offense is one of the most difficult to defend in today’s game. Chin Set The Chin Set is broken down on the dry erase board first. Coach Jicha guides you through the offense including the four ways to get into it: the middle pass, the side pass, reversal, and the hand off. He then takes you to the court where he demonstrates the spacing and ball movement the offense provides. You’ll see the bump cut and pull-through techniques that are used to counter defensive pressure. Jicha also shows you the importance of high dribble-outs and the handoff to create back doors. Motion Set Motion is the set that is used on almost every trip down the floor. The offense starts with a wing pass and cut by the point. Coach Jicha then demonstrates seven motion options once that entry pass occurs. The secret to Motion is how smoothly it flows into Chin, which is extremely frustrating for defenses. Shuffle Set Shuffle is a unique set that provides wing-to-block shuffle cutting action. It can also flow right into Chin. In addition to the breakdowns of each set, Coach Jicha also teaches 20 quick hitters that can be used with the offense – five each for Chin and Motion and 10 for Shuffle. Coach Jicha closes his presentation with 10 drills he uses to teach offensive actions and to demonstrate how to get game shots. This video breaks down a complex offensive system so well it can be used at any level of play.
