Open Practice: Offense & Skill Development

with Dave Richman,
North Dakota State University Head Coach;
2015 Summit League Regular Season Champions;
2x Summit League Tournament champions ('15, '19);
2015 Summit League Coach of the Year

Dave Richman has guided the North Dakota State Bison through an impressive five-year run that includes two NCAA tourney appearances, three Summit League Tournament titles and over 90 wins. His attention to detail on the offensive side of the ball has his program primed for continued success.

In this video, you'll get a detailed look at Coach Richman's attention to detail and focus on fundamentals and how he applies them in his practices to prepare players for game situations.

Warm-Up & Fundamental Drills

'5-4-3 Passing' helps Coach Richman set the tone for his practices. Within the drill, players start out slow and take great care into catching the ball all the way into their hands. Using two hands, two eyes and two feet, players get up and down the floor and prepare to play at a fast pace.

Getting players to buy in to focusing on fundamentals can be a challenge. Athletes often want to go from 0 to 100 within a matter of seconds without focusing on the little things that matter most. Coach Richman demonstrates how he gets his players to slow down and focus on the details of basketball.

In 'Post Feeds', players move slowly to over-emphasize pass fakes and make sure they connect knee-to-knee with their post entry passes in order to keep the defense away from the ball. In 'Passing and Catching', players learn to change their speed within their cuts and catch with two hands, two feet and two eyes. This will help your players play a fast-paced game without making small mistakes that lead to turnovers.

In Richman's '4-on-5 Passing' drill, players put everything together in the half court. With one defensive player allowed to float and be a free safety, the defense applies aggressive pressure, forcing the offense to turn the ball over. The offense must complete 10 passes using all the principles learned from the build-up drills covered earlier in practice. This is an excellent drill to combine being strong with the ball, making hard cuts, and moving with and without the ball.

Offensive Breakdown & Shooting Workout

You will see how Coach Richman emphasizes and teaches to "go up on two, finish on two" in order to protect the ball against contact when finishing. Players are taught to attack the rim in a variety of ways (attacking baseline, attacking middle, and cutting off of a post entry) in order to finish against contact.

To run an effective offense, you must have great shooters. Building a great shooter starts close to the rim with an emphasis on form. In the middle of practice, Richman slows his players down to focus on catching, finding the rim, and holding their follow-through to create consistent shooting mechanics.

Next, you will see a variety of shooting drills to build confidence and range in your athletes. In '3's in 5 Minutes', players focus on their footwork and catching off of a pass in order to get enough power to go into their jump shot from NBA range. In 'Star Shooting', your players have to mentally focus on where they will move next. Athletes are tasked with shooting a free throw then moving to another spot around the floor, depending on the outcome of their free throw. Coach Richman also demonstrates how he keeps his players locked in after a break in practice by pushing them to review sets, go down and back within their transition break, or put them in a BLOB/SLOB situation to get them moving up and down the floor.

Coach Richman has built NDSU into a successful program by paying attention to the details that win games. His players play the game with solid fundamentals and make few mistakes on the offensive end of the floor. This video is a detailed look at how he accomplishes all of this within a practice set

Open Practice: Man-to-Man Defense Drills & Concepts

with Dave Richman,
North Dakota State University Head Coach;
2015 Summit League Regular Season Champions;
2x Summit League Tournament champions ('15, '19);
2015 Summit League Coach of the Year

This inside look into a NDSU practice will reveal the foundation to coach Dave Richman's entire man-to-man defensive philosophy. You will get a chance to see over 13 defensive drills demonstrated, along with in-depth explanation on the drills and applicable defensive skills from Coach Richman. A range of topics are shared including on-ball defense, closeouts, help defense, switching, transition defense, and ball screen coverage.

Essential Drills & Skills

Defending the ball is the most important aspect to a successful team defense, but is also the most difficult skill to master. NDSU places a constant emphasis on challenging the ball handler with a strong presence through daily practice drills.

You will learn how to reinforce the proper technique for closeouts through two drills. Coach Richman also explains how you can use the scouting report of your next opponent to adjust your closeout technique. Two different 1-on-1 drills will give your player a chance to refine their on-ball defense. You will learn how to force drives away from the rim while staying in front of the ball handler through the first two defensive slides.

The "Three Hoop Campaign" is an incredible drill to develop competition amongst your players for playing tough on-ball defense. Through 2-on-2 and 3-on-3 drills, Richman incorporates other aspects to defending the ball such as help defense and rebounding. You will learn how your players can support the on-ball defender with gap positioning and stunts. Richman also shares his "Hit, Pinch, Chase" concept that will help all five of your defenders understand how to maximize their chances of the team securing the rebound.

Transition & Switching

If you want your team defense to operate a full strength, then converting from offense to defense is critical. See how North Dakota State prioritizes getting back in transition to build their team defense by dropping three players back. The "Scramble Conversion" drill is a must-have addition to your practices. This will challenge your players to rotate through disadvantage situations in transition defense while also pushing the offense to score quickly with a reduced shot clock.

4-on-4 drills are also demonstrated to show you North Dakota's defensive concepts for handling screens. You will learn how to switch any offensive action that brings two players near the ball. You will also see how to employ a drop coverage for ball screens that involve one of your larger defenders that need to stay with their match-up. Coach Richman explains how pick & rolls are defended with all five players on the floor through a detailed breakdown of individual technique and responsibilities. Not all ball screens are the same - you will learn how to defend four different scenarios that create unique challenges for the defense.

Learn how a Division 1 basketball program teaches the foundation of their man-to-man defense with this look inside a Dave Richman-coached NDSU basketball practice!
