with Jamie Dixon, University of Pittsburgh Head Coach; 2009 Naismith Men's College Basketball Coach of the Year; 2004 Big East Coach of the Year.
Coach Jamie Dixon breaks down the perimeter portion of the 4-Out 1-In Offense. Four spots on the floor are designated as perimeter areas - the two wings and the two guard slots, those areas above the lane line extended. The sweep series begins the workout and is a required drill for all perimeter players. Dixon teaches players to get open, catch, sweep and drive to the basket or pull up and shoot. An important teaching point is a 6-inch shot fake, making the move to the basket quicker. The next progression is the jump shot from the same cuts executed in the sweep series. Drive and drag is a baseline drive followed by a dish to a teammate. Keys to this drill are finding the angle, getting to the right spot and making yourself available for the catch. The 3 W's teach players to use screens efficiently and represent being wide, waiting for the screen and watching the defense. The cutting series begins with the basket cut, followed by curl high, back cut, pop and the fade cut. Penetration work is a big part of this defense and is worked on in a 2-on-2 setting. The multi-purpose transition drill works on conditioning, penetration positioning, reading the court, hands and ball movement. Defending the ball screen and the back screen is perfected in a half court 2-on-2 drill. Perimeter development comes also from 3-on-0 and 4-on-0 drills.
