4 Out Motion Offense & Drills
Looking to force the hand of an opposing defense? UMBC head coach Ryan Odom can help you do so. If you don’t recognize Odom’s name, it was his UMBC team that became the first-ever No. 16 seed to beat a No. 1 seed (Virginia) in the 2018 NCAA tournament. Odom led his program to a 25-11 overall record – a school record for wins – and the America East Conference Tournament championship.
Odom favors an up-tempo style of play that forces defenses into situations they do not prefer. Just ask Virginia, which is perennially one of the best defensive teams in the country. In this drive and kick basketball drills video, Odom gives you an inside look at his motion offense and the drills he uses to teach it.
Drive and Kick Basketball Drills to Score
Coach Odom begins his practices with a passing drill to get his players moving and warmed up for the day. You’ll see something Odom calls “freelance ball handling” in which he gives his players the freedom to create as they learn to handle the basketball.
With players loose and ready to go, they transition into half-court offense. Two-Man Ball Screens is a drill where your players learn to work together. They learn to read defenses and react accordingly to create scoring chances.
Coach Odom will teach the side ball, angle ball, and middle ball screens as well as how to clip or fake the ball screen. All of these drills are great for helping players transition into motion offense shooting. Coach Odom reviews his UMBC Shooting Series where players get up game shots after learning how to get open using V-cuts, the drive and kick, and the flip back pass.
Coach Odom begins the teaching of the Motion offense with the fast break that has been so successful for his UMBC teams. Players are taught to hunt for their shot within the first 7-10 seconds of the possession. This applies immense pressure to a defense.
The keys to getting a good shot in transition are making sure there is a quick outlet pass, being creative in getting to the paint, and searching for open layups and 3-point shots. You will see Odom’s 12-second drill which emphasizes the fast break. You will learn how to use drag screens, double drag screens, and more in an effort to create scoring opportunities.
