Tubby Smith: Game-Winning Rebounding Techniques & Unstoppable Press Break Offense
Two facets of today’s game – rebounding and press break offense – are critical in determining a team’s success. High Point University head coach Tubby Smith offers up drills for both in this video. Smith, one of just two NCAA head coaches to ever lead five different teams to the NCAA tournament, shares a wealth of information that can help your program develop an identity as a strong rebounding team. Smith also shares his press break principles versus both man and zone defenses.
Coach Smith does an outstanding job of showing you how you can win the possession battle on both ends of the floor. You will see breakdowns of both offensive and defensive rebounding techniques. Coach Smith shows you how to use the hip to gain an advantage over an opponent, especially when you’ve been boxed out in the key. Rebounding in a free throw situation is also discussed and Smith provides three different techniques for success.
You will see how players can use both feet as pivots when they box out. This allows players to focus on their man and puts them in a position where they can see the ball and get it. After the rebound, players are also taught how to outlet the ball to get their team in transition.
Coach Smith also can help you turn up the competition in practice. He will show you how to make players compete. A number of drills are taught where players must keep score to determine clear winners and losers. This amps up the practice speed.
Press Break Offense
Breaking the press can be done from the same initial press break set. Coach Smith shows you how and includes multiple options out of that same set. He reviews proper spacing and positioning for all players. This will help your team easily beat any type of press.
Emphasizing rebounding and the press break have helped Smith’s teams through the years maximize the number of possessions in a game. The better you are at these two skills, the more scoring opportunities your team will have and, ultimately, more success.
