Chris Mack: Continuity Pick & Roll Offense

with Chris Mack,
University of Louisville Head Coach;
former Xavier University Head Coach;
2018 Big East Coach of the Year; 2018 Big East Champions;
2016 USBWA Henry Iba National Coach of the Year award winner;
2011 Atlantic 10 Coach of the Year; 2x Atlantic 10 Conference Champs (2010, '11);
2009-10 Basketball Times Rookie Coach of the Year,
tied the school record for the most wins ever by an Xavier rookie head coach (26).

Ball screens are becoming a huge part of basketball and can be a successful tool for your team if they are executed properly. This ball screen DVD will give you the tools you need to install this system into your program.

In this on-court clinic presentation, Chris Mack gives you a comprehensive look at the inner workings of a successful ball screen offense.

Coach Mack will show you how a ball screen offense can:

  • Limit turnovers and make plays by keeping the ball in your best players hands
  • Force your opponent's post players to defend away from the basket
  • Gain rebounding advantages, get open shots, get to the free throw line more often and create mismatches using rotations

Learn the most important concepts you must teach the dribbler and the screener: Creating separation, getting to the level of the screen, how to hold the screen and the three types of screens.

Using a 2-on-2 demonstration, Mack shows you the five defense attacks most commonly used to defend the ball screen. For each of these scenarios, Mack takes you through two ways to attack the defense and provides the ball handler and screener reads and passes.

To help you incorporate ball screens into your offense, Mack delivers ball screen plays in a 5-on-0 setting.

Using this effective ball screen offense, Coach Mack was the winningest first-year head coach in Division I in 2009-10 and the only rookie head coach to lead his team into the 2010 NCAA Tournament field.

68 minutes. 2010.

2009-10 Basketball Times Rookie Coach of the Year,
tied the school record for the most wins ever by an Xavier rookie head coach (26).

With this all access pass, you get the opportunity to watch Chris Mack and the Xavier Musketeers build on their Sweet 16 performance from the 2009-10 season. This DVD contains the first four practices of the 2010-11 season. See what it means to do things "the Xavier way!"

Throughout the video, you will see the emphasis of competing every day, demonstrating box toughness, and working on the little details that will set your program apart. In addition, Mack demonstrates various transition drills on both offense and defense, half-court defensive drills focusing on closing out and "walling up," and the breakdown of the ball-screen offense.

Pre-Practice & Warm-Ups:
Assistant coaches take the court with the players to get them loose both mentally and physically. Practices begin with the "daily dozen," consisting of drills to attack the basket.

Defensive System:
Coach Mack emphasizes the packline pressure defense, keeping the ball out of the middle, relying on excellent help defense and communication. Learn how he builds his defense with individual and team defensive drills, highlighting drills designed on close-outs, building walls, closing all gaps, and jumping to the ball.

Rounding out team defense drills, Mack incorporates triangle block-outs and WAR rebounding to replicate game situations. Mack also gives his players a plan on how to defend middle and side ball screens, pin down screens and back screens

Transition Offense:
Teach your players how to put constant pressure on the defense with these transition drills. Watch the flow of the ball screen offense take shape in their 4-on-4 Baseline Touch drill, leading to many wide open three-point shot attempts and easy lay-ups.

Offense:
Mack shares his ball screening continuity offense. This offense allows players to flow into ball screening situations on the side and middle while looking to get great drives at the basket and dribble drive kick outs. Getting the basketball into the post is heavily emphasized with this offense as players can ball screen and dive to get a deep pin inside the lane. Mack passes along some of his set plays that go into the flow continuity offense and side out of bounds plays.

Special Situations:
Learn Coach Mack's philosophy in regards to jump ball situations, free-throw alignments, timeout huddles, low shot-clock situations, and sideline out-of-bounds plays. These concepts can guarantee an increase in efficiency for your team.

tied the school record for the most wins ever by an Xavier rookie head coach (26).

In this on-court clinic presentation, Chris Mack shares everyday drills that are the backbone of his aggressive pack line defensive system.

Coach Mack teaches the defensive basics using individual and team drills that will:

  • Create extreme ball pressure
  • Keep the ball out of the middle of the court
  • Force the offense to take contested jump shots "away from the box"
  • Develop excellent help defense and improve communication on defense

These drills emphasize "discouraging the shot, but playing the drive" through positioning, closing out with high hands, building walls, closing gaps and jumping to the ball.

After building the basics, Mack breaks down post defense from initial positioning on the floor to positioning after the offensive catch in the post. You will see his wall up technique for post defense that will create "the toughest 3-foot shot to make."

Bringing all of the basic defensive concepts and rules together, Mack demonstrates his 3-out, 1-in (unguarded post) drill, his 3-on-3 identity drill and 3-out 1-in identity drill (4-on-4 with a post) to train the players in a game-like tempo.

Coach Mack's Xavier teams are known for their aggressive man defensive play and this DVD gives you insight into how you can implement these defensive principles and drills.

Chris Mack: Winning with a Structured Fast Break

with Chris Mack,
University of Louisville Head Coach;
former Xavier University Head Coach;
2018 Big East Coach of the Year; 2018 Big East Champions;
2016 USBWA Henry Iba National Coach of the Year award winner;
2011 Atlantic 10 Coach of the Year; 2x Atlantic 10 Conference Champs (2010, '11);
2009-10 Basketball Times Rookie Coach of the Year,
tied the school record for the most wins ever by an Xavier rookie head coach (26).

Modeled after the break the Phoenix Suns ran under Mike D'Antoni, Coach Chris Mack reveals the principles and rules of the structured fast break.

The Suns ran this transition offense using both missed and made shots. But Coach Mack concentrates on exclusively on missed shots, which he believes gives his team an attacking mentality by focusing on the defense when it's most vulnerable-in transition.

Coach Mack explains the importance of playing good defense in order to limit the number of baskets made by opponents. But he also stresses the value of getting players in position to make "cheap baskets" or quick transition hoops, second-chance points off offensive rebounds, baseline out of bounds plays, and free throws. Against an equal or slightly superior opponent, points added from "cheap baskets" could mean the difference between winning and losing.

Throughout the DVD, Coach Mack emphasizes the importance of maximizing personnel. This requires either putting a set rules in place for each player and each position in the break, or relying on point guard to take over as the "floor general." He goes on to share four rules for point guards beginning with the idea that they receive all outlet passes. The other guard and small forward, whom he calls wide runners, run the sidelines to the corner to spread the floor and the defense. There are actions for them to be on the opposite sides (split) and on the same side (paired). If the rebound goes to a player who is considered a "capable" ball handler, the point guard can become a wide runner, as well.

The first post down court is the rim runner. His job is to look for an over-the-top pass, or to seal (steal?) a quick posting opportunity. He will head for the ball opposite the short corner if he doesn't receive a pass. Then comes the trailer, normally the post who grabbed the rebound and passed the outlet. He will set a ball screen for the point guard and either roll hard to the rim or pop to a place where he can make a shot.

Coach Mack continues his tutorial describing how to make an open side work in a two-man game. He explains how to exploit the vulnerability of the defense by attacking them when they are in rotation. In addition, he demonstrates the step-up screen, back screes and stagger screen as well as a run-the-circuit drill. He ends the clinic with a question and answer session on hard hedging, double teams, quick hitters and multiple position players.

The transition game will get your players into an attacking frame of mind that will influence other aspects of their game and their lives.

2016 USBWA Henry Iba National Coach of the Year award winner;
2011 Atlantic 10 Coach of the Year; 2x Atlantic 10 Conference Champs (2010, '11);
2009-10 Basketball Times Rookie Coach of the Year,
tied the school record for the most wins ever by an Xavier rookie head coach (26).

This coaching clinic takes on a unique format as Xavier head coach, Chris Mack, allows coaches like you to request the practice drills they need most.

Coach Mack shares his ideas for organizing a practice that will benefit your players the most. Ultimately, the talking points highlight what Coach Mack is best known for: the Pack Line Defense, toughness, and rebounding.

In all, 14 drills are demonstrated and are intermixed with several anecdotes that reveal the underlying Xavier philosophy. You will see practice drills for a range of concepts including rebounding, on-ball defense, transition defense, handling pressure, post play, screening and shooting.

Drills for the Pack Line Defense

You will learn how to establish critical elements of the Pack Line defense. These drills are focused on getting your defenders to "build a wall around the ball" and how that philosophy parlays into the core principles underlying the Pack Line defensive scheme. Body positioning, philosophy relating to the baseline drive, the importance of gap integrity and close-outs are all discussed, complete with drills that combine and illustrate the various teaching points.

As an example, Coach Mack shares one of his favorite defensive drills - the Blackhawk Drill. An on-ball defender must exhibit defensive fundamentals as jumping-to-the-ball, bumping-the-cutter, closing-out, and maniacal on-ball pressure to prevent any straight-line scores.

Additionally, Coach Mack demonstrates three drills that focus on stopping fast breaks. He shares his system for sending players back in transition. These transition drills will challenge your players to quickly recover and build the half court defense through disadvantage situations.

Rebounding & Toughness Drills

In order to win on the boards, a team must have a level of toughness instilled and a desire to get to the ball before the opponent. Five drills are displayed that Coach Mack uses to mold his teams into hard-nosed, physically superior teams. All involve either an individual battle for a rebound or a battle in the trenches, with most also incorporating an offensive element. Teaching points prevalent throughout the drill package include:

  • The "hit and seal" approach to individual rebounding
  • Protecting the basketball (toughness with the ball) while under intense pressure
  • Battling for offensive position in the post
  • Containing the dribble with intense, on-ball pressure

Offensive Drills

Teach your players how to play through pressure with three practice drills. Learn how to use your dribble and triple threat to beat the 5-second count and maintain possession of the ball. You'll see how to combine concepts such as getting open with the L-cut while working on additional offensive skills. Raise the adversity to levels that will surpass even what you'll see in games with the Pressure Drill. Offensive players will have to maintain their composure and be strong with the ball to survive the clock.

Coach Mack believes that "the best post move is no post move." He will show you how to fight for position close to the rim and finish strong with a drill specifically for post-players. You will also learn teaching points for scoring with jump hooks, drop steps, and face-up moves for when your post players are pushed off the block.

The Texas Tech Screening drill is a fantastic way to build your motion offense. This drill will g
