While at George Washington University, Coach Karl Hobbs has developed a dangerous transition game that produces baskets quickly. The 2005-06 team averaged 78 ppg, lead the league in assists, while boasting five players with double figure averages. His philosophy is to score quickly in transition. He believes that a good coach must find a way to score easy baskets within its system. "Sharing the game" is the foundation of GW's selfless offensive play and requires players to pass to teammates with better shots. Because no player can hold the ball for more than 3 seconds, this brand of basketball is exciting, fast moving and puts great stress on the defense. Attacking the rim is an important principle in Hobb's transition game. This DVD will share the drills and philosophy that supports this explosive offensive game. The 2-on-0 drill stresses the long outlet pass, running the floor and finishing. The 3-on-0 drill adds the point guard who takes the outlet and passes ahead for the lay-up. An additional player is added to this drill, 4-on-0, allowing all four players to run the floor and have opportunities to score. Good passing skills are enhanced in all drills, which is imperative for successful transition basketball. The next progression is the 3-on-2, 2-on-1 drill. The most important focus is on scoring at the basket. Communication is crucial on both ends of the floor. "Share the game" is demonstrated on the 2-on-1 break with quick passes and hard drives to the basket. This same concept is applied to half court offense. Hobbs sets up his offense, adding great teaching points such as ball reversal, driving options, spacing and replacing. Combining transition to the half court offense allows coaches to witness the entire offensive package. Hobbs' collegiate point guard experience is evident in this coaching style. This DVD takes a look at an explosive offensive system that any coach could implement. The "Share the game" concept will help your team exploit the defense by wearing them down. Your team can score easy baskets like never before by applying the concepts illustrated in this excellent presentation.
