JOHN BEILEIN: 11 THINGS THAT ARE CHANGING THE GAME

One more set of notes from John Beilein thanks to Allen Osborne:

1. CLOSEOUTS
High and Hard
Talk 3 x’s (mine, mine, mine)
Practice every day!

2. QUICKMAN
4 on 3 stuff, 2 on 1, 5 on 4 (all w defense at a disadvantage)

3. BALL SCREENS / DEFENSE
Have more than 1 option

4. SWITCHING

5. PRESSURE DEFENSE
Sometimes it can create offense
You need the personnel

6. BE ABLE TO GUARD THE BALL SCREEN IN TRANSITION

7. DRIBBLE VS PASSING GAME
Do shell defense drill with the dribble.

8. POINT & BIGS HAVE TO BE IN THE BEST SHAPE
Shooters just stand in the corner and space
Point and Bigs are always running3 guys can’t have a bad practice
Coach, Point, and best player
Bring the energy and correct frame of mind

9. BE ABLE TO SCORE OVER STRONG ARMS/WALLED UP LAYUP
Big Ten defense with arms up and chest into the shooter on the way up and hands pointing back

10. SCORE AGAINST GREAT GAP DEFENSE

11. USE OF LOB PASSES ON BREAKS
Had to start practicing lobs because we couldn’t do it in games. It was always “my bad” in the summer
