With Seth Greenberg, Virginia Tech University Head Coach; 2005 ACC 'Coach of the Year'.
Coach Greenberg says that offense is not about what is fashionable, but functional. He believes it's not about what you do but how you do it. Part of an offensive attack is to determine slides and positions for each player when the ball is penetrated. The most important part of developing an offense is the ability to get open. Every offense needs pressure releases to beat pressure man-to-man. The 'slice offense' is based on forming a triangle on one side of the floor followed by a post cross screen and a high-low look. When the ball is reversed the next action is a shuffle cut to the open block. As the ball is reversed the action includes a back screen and a double screen for a shooter. Greenberg stresses that post players must "lift" up the floor and seek the ball after screening. Every cut, dribble and screen has a purpose that leads to scoring. Dribble hand-offs can be added at various times within this offense. The key to the 'slice offense' is to attack the defense in the full court and half court. Greenberg walks players through their secondary offense as well, which has several options to score.
