OFFENSE TIPS: Pick and Roll.
In todays up tempo style of Basketball a greater emphasis is being placed on the open or spread offense, dribble penetration and the ability to draw and kick out to the three point shooters.
The Pick and Roll (also called the ball screen) is one of the oldest plays in basketball, but it is now being used more than ever.
The Pick and Roll has become popular as a method for gaining dribble penetration and then drawing and kicking, either kicking in to a player near the basket or kicking out to a three point shooter.
At the Professional level, the Pick and Roll has become a primary part of the offense for most teams. It has also become a major part of both College and High School basketball.
In the Pick and Roll, the picker sets the pick and then rolls (cuts to the baasket) for a possible inside shot off a pass from the ball handler.
If the picker is a good shooter, a pick and pop may be used; this play has the picker popping out for an outside shot rather than rolling to the basket.
Remeber to always be aggressive on both sides of the ball. Creating tempo is most important.
