(Rental)-Princeton Offense 2.0: Reads, Counters, & Set Plays
Princeton Offense 2.0: Reads, Counters, Set Plays
Coach Lee DeForest has coached the Princeton offense at every level, from high school to Division I, with great success. In this video, Coach DeForest breaks the Princeton offense down into reads and counters. Reads are player-controlled and counters are coach-controlled. With this idea in mind, Coach DeForest provides whiteboard diagrams and then teaches these concepts on the court in a 5-on-0 setting. You will also see how modern day sets like Horns, Sixers, and Spread can be used in the offense just like the old schools sets like Chin, Circle, and Point.
Initial Princeton Set
The Princeton offense is perfect for today’s game as it features four interchangeable guard spots. Coach DeForest goes through the initial set up of the offense and then guides you through simple reads and counters that every team that runs the offense should know.
The Point Series consists of six plays that you can run to counter a defensive strategy or exploit a certain weakness found in scouting an opponent. Snap Back is a play that creates a high-low opportunity for one of your perimeter players. Other plays free up shooters off of double screens, flare screens, and dribble handoffs.
As it sounds, the Low Series features two plays that work off of post feeds by using screening actions to find openings for your perimeter players. Wheel is a counter used when the post feed is denied by using backdoor cuts and flare screens.
Vary your attack on the defense with five plays in the Circle Series. To get the ball to your best player in crunch time, use Circle Floppy. Fist Entry allows you to change up how you initiate the play against an aggressive denial defense. Use quick hitters that sent shooters off of flare or double screens. The Circle Series has something that you can install with your team right away.
When playing aggressive defenses that deny your initial passing options, the Chin Series gives you two options to counter. Coach DeForest shows you three different ways to counter defenses that sag versus back screens in the Chin Series. He also offers two more ways to exploit a defense that tries to switch on screens.
Coach DeForest gives you all you need to install an updated and improved Princeton offense. Rent this Princeton Offense DVD today.
