with Jay Wright,
Villanova University Head Men's Basketball Coach,
NCAA "Sweet 16" (2005),
Philadelphia Big Five Eastern College Coach of the Year
Jay Wright's unique ability to teach proper fundamentals and footwork is key to the national success of his Villanova program. All of his players, regardless of their position, use the skills they learn in practice to gain an edge over powerful opponents in the Big East. Wright defines four major scoring areas on the floor: wing, prime time (block), mid-post (off block), and slot (high post) positions. Because his players come from different backgrounds and systems, his ability to instill solid footwork into all his players is impressive. His motto is that "Players must be comfortable on either foot" so his workouts focus on pivoting on both the inside and the outside foot from both sides of the floor and why both are important. Wright demonstrates his Jab Series which creates potent scoring options from anywhere on the floor. Taught with or without the use of a screen, this series forms the bedrock for perimeter effectiveness at Villanova. A compliment to the Jab Series is the Swing Series that incorporates the reverse pivot, bully move and two-footed hop jumpers. Jay Wright's instruction will greatly enhance your team's ability to attack on offense and score more points.
