BD-03368: with Rick Majerus,
former St. Louis University Head Coach;
former University of Utah Head Coach,
1998 National Coach of the Year,
career winning percentage of .741 - (ranks fourth among active Division 1 coaches)
Frustrate your opponent's top two scorers! Prevent your opponent from getting into rhythm offensively!
Former National Coach of the Year Rick Majerus unveils for the first time his philosophy on the triangle and two defense. Majerus shows you how this "disruptor defense," when used on a selective basis, can immobilize your opponent.
Majerus teaches and demonstrates the critical components of aggressive close outs and how to defend various cutters, screens and hand-offs. Majerus presents an in-depth discussion on player responsibilities as they relate to the three defensive zones utilized in this baffling defense.
He shows the "fake and fade" technique to prevent shooters from being able to "rhythm up" and get open looks at the basket. By taking away their shot, players are forced to become drivers and dribble into the triangle. To counter dribble penetration and assist with box-out responsibilities, Majerus teaches the "sliding the triangle." He also provides game clips that reinforce the various concepts of this dominating defense.
Cut off your opponent's life blood and force them to prepare for one more defense; the Triangle and Two!

former Division I college basketball coach (Manhattan College, St. John's University and University of New Mexico),
former NABC District II Coach of the Year and MAAC Coach of the Year
Fran Fraschilla compiles the latest and greatest ideas on basketball offense from his decades of experience as a coach and as an ESPN analyst to deliver the ultimate guide to the Horns offense. You will see how to use the options in this offensive system to create a structured motion that can be tailored to suit the talents of your personnel.
In addition to these motion offense concepts, Coach Fraschilla also shows you over 25 set plays being used at the highest levels of basketball, such as the NBA and international play.
The Horns Offense
Learn the central principles to the Horns offense, including the spacing and roles of players in the offense. Coach Fraschilla shows you how to string together a series of 2- and 3-player actions in a structured motion based on four main types of cuts.
With every cut, you will learn the options that your players can utilize by reading the defense, as well as the technique required to score from those actions. Offensive actions include playing off of wide pin downs, dribble hand-offs, ball screens, flex cuts, dribble penetration and more.
See how to improve the effectiveness of ball screens in your offense with the set plays and concepts that Coach Fraschilla has learned from studying the best teams in the world. Some of the keys to these plays are to incorporate false motion to scramble the defense, optimize spacing and separate your post from their defender as they sprint into a ball screen.
Learn how to use new tactics to execute ball screens, including flip screens for defenders that go under, the short roll versus aggressive defenses, back action for sagging defenders and the invisible screen to open up gaps for dribble penetration.
Coach Fraschilla expands on other scoring options with more than 15 set plays. A series of plays taken from the best teams in international basketball will show you how to score off staggered screens, pin downs, flex screens and post ups. The Horns set that Argentina has used to great success in recent international play is broken down in detail. You will see how multiple options can be created from this set to score off lobs, ball screens and down screens.
Multiple plays are also shown to help you create isolations for your best players and teach them how to score in late game situations. Coach Fraschilla explains how the 2015 NBA Champion Golden State Warriors flowed into the Horns offense with a secondary break that utilizes wide pin downs and stagger screens to free up shooters.
Fran Fraschilla has assembled the must-have resource for any coach who uses the Horns alignment in their offense. You'll be able to take bits and pieces from the video and implement them into your Horns offense or improve your preferred style of play.

2015 National Championship Coach,
winning back-to-back-to-back national championships (2013-15)
Great defense can take you far on the road to a championship, but games aren't won 0-0. The ability to score points in the ever-changing world of basketball is vital for team success. Legendary coach Geno Auriemma explains the concepts, drills and plays he's used to excel in both man-to-man and zone offenses.Offense Breakdown Drills

Coach Auriemma stresses the importance of individual skill development within the offensive progressions, and shows you the drills he uses to improve the passing, dribbling, shooting, cutting and screening of his players. He includes two drills that train players to attack the basket with as few dribbles as possible. These drills work on dribble moves and finishing at the rim with different types of lay-ups and pull-up jump shots.
Coach Auriemma demonstrates how he prepares players for UConn's offensive system by simulating his offense with drill work. You'll see seven breakdown drills that use two and three players to refine parts of his 1-4 high offense. Players work on basket cuts and UCLA cuts for lay-ups, scoring off of down screens and back screens, and getting posts involved as a scorer or facilitator with back cuts and handoffs.

Starting with a wing pass and cut, you will learn how to run multiple actions from the 1-4 high set that are triggered based on various entries into the offense. See how to flow into side ball screens, free shooters off of down screens and make plays from off-ball screens at the wing.
