PETE NEWELL: KEY ELEMENTS OF SUCCESSFUL OFFENSE

1. Conditioning
You should never be beaten because your team was not in better condition than your opponent.

2. Drills
They should be fundamental, repetitive, and progressive

3. Balance
This refers to shooting balance, team balance (all five players included in system), floor balance, defensive balance and rebound balance.

4. Elements of offense
Simplicity (execution over surprise)
Flexibility (must have ability to adjust during the game)
Continuity (important when play does not lead to a shot)
Tempo (the team that controls the tempo of a game will most likely emerge as the victor)
Correlation to Defense (certain defenses lead into certain offenses better)
