With Lon Kruger, UNLV Head Coach; one of three coaches in NCAA history to win at least one game in the NCAA tournament with four different schools.
Coach Kruger begins with his keys to setting up a strong offense. These include determining who goes to the offensive boards and who gets back, getting easy baskets, getting open on the wing, running and catching without turnovers and changing sides to attack the defense. In the half court, Kruger demonstrates several strategies that help his high scoring team. Each component of half court offense must be broken down and drilled. Posts are taught to create contact in the paint to dictate his position. He discusses the shuffle cut, post feeds, ball reversal, cutting on post passes, double screen away, on ball screen and roll, popping the 4-Man, drive and kick, dribble weave and misdirection plays. Combinations of this list are incorporated into plays that are numbered to identify them on the floor. Early offense uses the on ball screen near mid-court and can be used against man-to-man or zone presses. This flexible offense will produce good spacing, opportunities for penetration and mismatches.
