with Doug Bruno, DePaul University Head Women's Coach.
Year in and year out the Blue Demon transition game defeats opponents on a regular basis. The brilliance behind this transition game is the topic of this DVD by Coach Bruno. He shares 10 principles for playing transition basketball. Bruno believes that playing in the open court creates quick and easy baskets and puts pressure on your opponent. Establishing roles is important to this type of game. Bruno sets down eight principles for play, which are balls skills, footwork, advanced offensive skills, teaching the eyes and the ears, understanding the game and being in condition. Skills development is important when playing transition and is a big part of DePaul's strategy. Defending to run is a concept that stresses defense before running the floor. There is more scoring and sharing with a running team, which adds to the morale of the team. Bruno lists six prerequisites for the transition game. Bruno steps to the floor to demonstrate drills used in his powerful running game. The sweep drill teaches players to cover space with few dribbles and finishing at the basket. Full court lay-ups are mixed with team free throws. Ten drills are executed on this transition DVD by one of America's finest coaches.
