3. #3 Dribble for a reason
If you dribble the basketball, only dribble for a good reason. Good reasons to dribble are: to dribble the ball up the floor, to drive to the basket, to get in better position to make a pass, or to relieve some defensive pressure.

4. Come to the ball
Make sure your receivers come to the ball! They should attack each reception with the same intensity that the defense does. This cannot be overemphasized. Have them jump to the ball and pivot in the air, so that they are facing the front court when they land. This gives them much more latitude to attack the defense.

5. Attack the basket
On the fast break, try to take the ball hard to the basket and get a high percentage shot. The more easy shots you can get, the better off your team will be.

6. Look for your shot
Try to get a shot quickly, before the defense gets a chance to set up. If you don´t have a shot, pass the ball quickly while your team has more players on that side of the floor than the defense.

7. Ball/Man Line
When you are guarding a player without the ball in man to man defense, it is important to be aware of the "ball/man line". The ball/man line is an imaginary line between your man, and the man with the ball. You should be on the basket side of the ball man line and away from your man enough to help your teammates. This position helps form what is called the "defensive triangle"

8. Use your eyes to catch
The eyes are just as important as the hands when it comes to catching the ball. When receiving a pass, it is important to watch the ball all the way into the hands. Many times a player with "bad hands" simply isn´t watching the ball.

9. #2 Face the basket
When you catch the basketball, turn & face the basket and get into "triple threat position". This is the position that you will be able to shoot, pass, or dribble from. Then the defense has more things to worry about and you will be hard to guard.

10. Early Offense
If the fast break does not get your team a good shot, the players should flow into an organized "early offense" to try to get a good shot before the defense is set.

11. Practice structure
Have an idea on how you want your basketball practices to flow. There should be a natural progression to what you do. Practices should start slow, for warm up purposes and gradually get more intense. Try developing a chart or checklist to make sure that you cover skills and strategies as often as you´d like. A sample of one can be found at:

12. Rebound
The key to starting a fast break is getting the rebound. Play good defense, force a miss, then send all the players to the defensive boards.

13. Believe
Always believe in yourself. If you think you can`t do it, you aren`t going to . When shooting, believe its going in and it will have a better a chance.

14. Entering Motion Offense
If ball is at the top of the key, screen down or back screen for a teammate on either side of the floor

15. Motion Offense-screen away
If basketball is passed to the wing, screen away for a player who is closer to the baseline than you are. This will get him open on the perimeter and may leave you open inside.

16. Motion Offense-keep the ball moving
Every time you catch the basketball, if you don´t have a shot or a drive, hold it for a 2 count and look to pass quickly to the other players who are cutting to the basket or using screens.

17. Look up the floor
On the fast break the player with the ball should look up at all times. This allows the dribbler to see open players ahead. Always throw the ball ahead to the first open player.

18. Motion Offense-dribbling
Motion offense is also called "passing game". Dribbling should be kept to a minimum. Use the dribble to only to improve the passing angle, drive to basket or to get out of trouble.

19. Run the Lanes
Try to run down the floor in the "fast break lanes" close to the sidelines. This keeps the offensive players spread out and makes guarding them more difficult.

20. fake a pass to make a pass
Use V-cuts to get open and ball fakes to avoid telegraphing the pass. Have your cutters move in straight lines, either toward the ball or toward your basket. Wide arcs and side-to-side cuts favor the defense.

21. Middle of the floor
Keep the ball in the middle of the floor as much as possible -- and away from the trapping zones.

22. Keep your dribble alive!
If you use your dribble, don´t lose your dribble! Once your players start to dribble, make sure they keep it alive if at all possible.

23. Make the defense pay
Once you cross half-court, don´t make careless mistakes. The press is broken. If you´ve got an advantage, make the defense pay by scoring a lay-up. If not, slow things down.

24. #3 See your man and the basketball
Always be able to see your man & the man with the basketball. You need to be able stop your man AND help your teammates if they get beat on the dribble.

25. #4 Stop the basketball
When on defense, react to the basketball and help your teammates. The only man that can score is the man with the ball. If he`s open - go guard him. If he passes the ball back to your man, sprint back and be ready to pressure him again.

26. Discourage the dribble
Discourage the dribble -- particularly the speed dribble -- against a zone press. Do as much as you can off the pass. Any dribbling should be controlled dribbling, head up, reading the floor.

27. Be calm
The coach, can do a lot to help the team break a difficult press. If the coach panics, the team panics. In the first half, the team will be breaking the press right in front of their bench. Call out instructions to them. Remind them to go to the ball, cut, to post up, to spread the floor, etc.

28. Stretch the defense
Stretch the defense. It doesn´t matter whether you start out of a stack, run four across, send guys to the midcourt corners -- just get that floor spread.
