Bob Knight: Spacing to Win
For legendary college basketball coach Bob Knight, there is nothing more important to effective play on either end of the floor than spacing. Knight, winner of over 900 career games, three national championships, and four national Coach of the Year awards, presents his ideas on spacing in this DVD. He explains why spacing is so important on offense and defense and shows you how to implement his concepts into your program.
To execute your offense effectively, you need space. Coach Knight shows you how to create space so your players can cut, screen, rebound, drive to the basket, or get open for a shot attempt. He also shares some insights on how to get more out of your offense. Coach Knight shows you how spacing can improve your screening and improve the play of your posts, especially when it comes to getting to the free throw line.
Coach Knight goes on to use the whiteboard to diagram how his offense attacks various defenses. He uses live demonstration and game film to further teach these concepts. Knight shows you how spacing can get your best scorer open against a Box-and-1. He then goes through how to attack different zone defenses including the 2-3, 3-2, and 1-3-1. You will also see how Coach Knight breaks a number of different presses like the full court 2-2-1, the 1-2-1-1 and the 1-2-1-1 half-court trap.
Spacing is also important on the defensive end and Knight reveals his strategies for using good spacing, positioning, and conversion on defense. This effectively limits the space an offense needs. Coach Knight talks about playing on the ball side, the help side, jumping to the ball, help and recover, and post defense.
Once again, Coach Knight goes on the floor with live demonstrations and shows you game film to explain what his concepts look like in game situations. From the youth level all the way to the NBA, spacing is extremely important to playing championship basketball. Watch as one of the game’s great coaches teaches you how to use it to your advantage.
