with Bruce Weber,
University of Illinois Head Coach;
2005 NCAA Runner-Up
In this DVD, Coach Weber assembles the pieces that make up a successful press attack; it must be simple, provide continuity and be consistent. Features of this presentation include Press Attack by Fast Break, which requires a quick inbounds pass to the point guard up the floor. Nine drills are shown, including the 18 second drill and 35 second drill that challenge players in the full court. A big part of Weber's press breaker is running the baseline to counter what the defense presents. Weber shows over 10 drills that he uses every day in practice. These include the Keep Away drill, which teaches passing and playing against double teams. It doubles as a conditioning drill as players can work with 10 lb. weighted balls in passing drills. The Circle Drill, 2-on-1 backup dribble drill, 3-on-3 drill, 3 vs. 4 drill and the Chaos drill are just some of the excellent drills featured in this presentation. In addition, Weber covers two attacks - Zone Control and Texas - to use against half court traps. Weber's DVD on press offense reflects years of observation and coaching at the highest levels. The principles and drills presented are rooted in time-tested fundamentals. Assure error free basketball when facing pressure by installing this sound system of attacking pressure!
