Wichita State Shockers Quick 4 Aggie

This is another play from Gregg Marshall’s Quick series that he discussed at the 2014 NABC Clinic in Dallas. The Aggie part of the play is from Utah State. Marshall “stole” this play from them after they played Utah State and could not stop the action.

To see EVERY play Wichita State ran in the 2013 Final Four you can do so in my eBook Championship Execution!


VCU Rams 35 Quick

Anthony Grant ran this hand-off pick & roll play while he was the head coach at VCU. As 3 comes off the pick he has multiple options of attack:

  1. Get to the rim or pull-up jumper
  2. Hit 5 rolling to the rim
  3. If X1 sags in the lane to take away 5, throwback to 1
  4. Drive and kick to 4 (or 2).


Florida Gators “Rhody”

Halfway through the 2nd half of their loss to UCONN, Florida head coach Billy Donovan called out this play to PG Scottie Wilbekin to get his Gators to run some offense for multiple looks. If you follow the Gators or Coach Donovan, you know he is one of the best at teaching and executing continuity offense.

While they frequently run baseline runner/rhody actions, I love this new addition to his playbook. There are multiple scoring opportunities to attack any defensive adjustments in this action.



Chicago Bulls 13 Quick Again

Friday night in between watching ESPNU Midnight Madness and the UCF-Louisville football game, I flipped over to the Chicago Bulls game. Tom Thibodeau runs some great offensive sets and Friday night he allowed me to add one more play to my library. The Bulls ran this play with pure perfection and timing. 1 also has the option to throwback to 3 coming off the screen from 5.


Boston Celtics Elbow 14 from @Coaching_U

Now LA Clippers Assistant Coach Kevin Eastman drew up this play at the inaugural Coaching U Live event several years back. This is an excellent backscreen play to get your PG into a dribble hand-off where the defense is forces to help in multiple situations.
