Hall of Fame coach Bill Self has been able to develop elite offenses through multiple styles of play over the course of his career. In this video, you will see how Self's Kansas Jayhawks have combined their 2-Game and 4-Game attacks to form one of the top offensive teams in the country. Coach Self provides you a glimpse into the full offensive package of the Jayhawks and also introduces you to his transition attack, numerous set plays, press break strategies, and two offenses to dismantle zone defenses.

Skills and Offensive Approach

Watch the Jayhawks start their practice with a brief segment of position-specific skill development. Coach Self describes the skill set he wants in his post players and demonstrates how guards can get open on the court with a 2-on-2 breakdown drill that has them working screening actions on the two-side of his motion offense.

Learn how to flow directly into your half-court offense with quick-hitting actions in transition. You'll see Self break down his full court attack so you can easily see how to get immediate ball reversals through the use of dribble pitches. He also explains why he eschews a secondary break for a more streamlined approach into his offense.

You will learn how to continue attacking with a full court press break when the defense extends their pressure. Coach Self takes an interesting approach with this phase of his offense by teaching his players to play out of principles rather than run through a scripted sequence. Through the "7-on-5" drill, your players will be challenged far beyond the demands of a regular game to advance the ball versus a full court pressure defense.

Kansas places a huge emphasis in their half-court offense to play through their dominant big men. Coach Self explains, with on-court demonstration in addition to whiteboard diagrams, how the Jayhawks counter post traps to capitalize on these defensive overplays for easy scoring opportunities. You will also get an opportunity to see Kansas rehearsing over five of their quick-hitters into their offense through 5-on-5 practice segments.

Attacking Zones and Inbound Strategies

Learn how to adjust your zone offense to reflect a perimeter-oriented lineup with Coach Self's motion offense versus zone defenses. You will see how to flash guards into the high post while simultaneously stretching the floor with movement along the perimeter. The Jayhawks also demonstrate their "stationary" offense for teams that prefer a more traditional attack that utilizes two post players. This practice segment will also break down how to attack 3-2 zone defenses with motion and high ball screens to collapse the defense.

Self believes in winning the "games within a game" that can lead to a valuable edge against your toughest opponents. Learn how to manage your timeouts with the goal of winning 70% of your after-timeout situations throughout the game. You'll get a package of sideline inbound plays that can launch you directly into your half court offense.

No matter whether you coach a team with size or a team with speed, this video will have something beneficial for you. Coach Self is a master teacher and there's no doubt his instruction will improve your program.

You're invited to watch one of the best college coaches in today's game work with one of the best teams in the country! Coach Bill Self has dominated the Big 12 Conference for years at the University of Kansas. In this video, you will see how he develops powerhouse teams with an emphasis on skill development, defense, baseline inbound plays, and 5-on-5 play.

Defensive Absolutes

Learn the three essential elements that Coach Self emphasizes in his man-to-man defense that will prevent easy baskets for the opponent. Through extensive lecture segments, Self personally discusses why his coaching staff statistically tracks "energy points" in practices in addition to the unique benefits and challenges of playing with different sized lineups. You will get new ideas for improving your team's rebounding with Coach Self's thoughts on rebounding technique that most realistically translates to games, how to statistically measure rebounding effort in competition, the importance of fighting for loose balls, and strategies for crashing the glass on offense, or double teaming a strong rebounder on the defensive block out. You will also learn how to get back in transition defense while maintaining pressure on the boards.

You'll learn how to implement Self's 4-on-4 defensive drill that teaches players how to guard ball screens. In particular, Coach Self expands on the teaching points for "icing" the ball screen with whiteboard explanations and on-court demonstration.

Learn from the best to see how you can take your defensive Shell Drill to a whole new level! The Jayhawks rapidly shuffle through multiple actions to defend, such as down screens, staggers, back screens and more. You'll also see how you can implement the Mover/Blocker offense to improve your defense versus screens.

Coach Self adds in a progression that teaches players how to double the post with both of their bigs. This is carried into a 5-on-5 drill that challenges the defense to trap the post and scramble back to match-ups when the ball is passed out and quickly reversed. These post double concepts are further supported with Self explaining his decision making for when to trap based on the scouting report. He also breaks down the details on the white board for denying the low post entry through multiple scenarios.

Inbound Plays & 5-on-5

Add five inbound plays to your playbook that will help you win critical games in crunch time. KU rehearses four baseline inbound plays that can deliver quality scoring looks at the rim or from 3-point range. You will also see how to inbound the ball from the sideline with a play that can flow right into your own catalog of quick-hitters. Coach Self also uses the whiteboard to demonstrate defensive tactics versus baseline inbound plays. These strategies will help you eliminate weak-side layups and fight through screen-the-screener actions.

Lastly, the Kansas players demonstrate how to put all these breakdown drills together with a 5-on-5 segment called "Blockout Break". This is a great way to apply the individual tactics and techniques you teach through drill segments into more realistic game-like applications.This is your chance to witness one of the top programs in college basketball at work in practice! Don't miss out on adding quality drills and tact
