Steve Fisher – San Diego State
Steve Fisher’s team is known for their up-tempo style of play including attacking the rim and open three-point opportunities. In this on-court demonstration, Coach Fisher teaches you their fast-paced style of play and their half-court offense.
Coach Fisher teaches competitive shooting drills that will teach your players to move with a purpose. He demonstrates partner shooting drills to get your players shots at the top of the key, elbows, corners and three pointers.
The Aztecs love to get out on the break and push the ball up the court looking to create easy shots. See how Fisher’s offense generates uncontested three-point shots in transition and easy entries into the post. Fisher details options you can use when your guard is unable to push the ball up the sidelines. He demonstrates a drag screen in transition with the bigs for a roll and replace action to space the floor.
Coach Fisher’s offense is primarily based on two offensive sets: Shuffle and Scissors (Horns). The Shuffle Series provides a basic wing-to-block cut off of the backscreen from the post man looking for a quick basket, but in his variation he uses two separate staggered screens to free open shooters along the perimeter. Should the passes be denied on swings and reverses, Fisher reveals tactics for releasing pressure with replace and screen away options.
Also covered are numerous quick hitters and options off of the Shuffle series including isolations, ball-screens, post-up’s and special three-point looks.
The Scissors set is a Princeton variation with the two big guys at the elbows. With the use of downscreens, back cuts, and ball-screens this set provides open shot attempts seamlessly. With quick hitters and counters to the set, you can keep the defense guessing.

Coach Fisher, one of the truly great teachers in the game, shares with you a group of drills he considers the best he’s ever seen, and he tells why they are so effective. He begins with a favorite warm-up drill that incorporates ball handling from baseline to half court and back. All shooting drills focus on communication and good passing and are competitive in nature. The 4 plus 1 shooting series; the 2, 2, 2, and 1 shooting drill; the Fire fast break drill are some of the featured drills you’ll see. Time-tested game plays are demonstrated step-by-step. Heat is a play with multiple options and screening action. “Florida” is a play that yields a lob for a lay-up by the post. On the free throw line, the “X” stunt can produce at least one basket per game. End of the game plays can pull out big wins, and Fisher shares his “4 second play” to win the game at the buzzer. This is a great collection of team and individual drills and plays!
Dave Rose – Brigham Young University
In this on-court demonstration, BYU Head Coach Dave Rose teaches you how he attacks opposing defenses in transition. Using this powerful system, the Cougars regularly rank amongst the top scoring teams in the nation.
Transition Offense Drills
Coach Rose gets his team to play at a very fast pace, putting the defense on their heels in transition. He begins his practices with a simple 3-man weave drill getting his team acclimated to the fast pace and getting shots off at the high speed and then builds on the weave with a 3-on-2 to 2-on-1 drill. Also included is his favorite drill (which he will use for up to 30 minutes of practice time) the “Nugget Drill.” This progression style transition drill creates a numbered break for the offense each time down the floor.
BYU’s “Basic” Transition Offense
The “Basic” Transition Offense provides various options on the break including open 3-point looks, post-ups, and cutters to the rim. In his offensive attack, Rose uses a 4-out 1-in set with the goal of getting the ball into the post for a high-percentage shot attempt. Rose also covers how to counter intense pressureusing dribble entries and pressure releases.
Rose fields questions about his transition drills and actions. Learn what he does against teams that play zone and how he likes to create spacing on the court when the ball is passed into the post. He also gives insight to how he has organized the BYU basketball program and shaped it into one of the best in the country.
