Legendary basketball coach Dick Bennett has coached at every level of the game, been successful at every level, and helped rebuild many programs during his career. His focus on developing a sound coaching philosophy while remembering that "it's not what you teach, it's what you emphasize" has been the cornerstone of his success everywhere he has coached.

In this video, sourced from multiple webinars featuring Coach Bennett, you will discover how he developed his offensive and defensive systems over time. X's and O's are broken down along the way using a whiteboard to help you easily understand positioning and movement for both sides of the ball. As you watch this video, you'll learn the benefits of Bennett's system, which helped his son Tony Bennett lead Virginia to the 2019 National Title.

On top of learning all about the pack line defense and blocker/mover offense, Coach Bennett hits on topics that all coaches should consider when leading a program, including:

  • Best teaching practices
  • Practice set-up and philosophy
  • The intangibles of a successful player and program
  • The little things that eliminate losing
  • Building and rebuilding programs
  • And more!

Pack Line Defense

Coach Bennett is one of the most innovative defensive minds in basketball and dives deep into everything you need to know about the pack line defense. You'll learn the pack line's pros & cons, as well as why Bennett switched from his very successful pressure defense to the pack in the first place.

This portion of the video is full of advice and "coaching nuggets" that will benefit all coaches - even those who don't run the pack line defense. Bennett covers the foundations of the pack line and the objectives that will help you better understand it so you can implement it more easily within your system and drill design. With many style changes on offense throughout recent years, Coach Bennett also discusses variations and ideas for how to combat side and middle ball screens that are so common today. He also considers different ways for creating more turnovers with the pack line, including post traps, switching, and the four + 1 (four playing the pack and one full denial). Finally, you'll see how to cover different types of off-ball screens, including down screens, cross screens, and flare screens.

Blocker/Mover Offense

Next, Coach Bennett delivers priceless coaching wisdom for the offensive side of the ball. With the style of play that the pack line defense predicates, it's important to choose an offensive style that complements the pack line. Bennett goes over the things every coach should consider when choosing an offense and explains why he chose to use the blocker/mover system. He then discusses the different ways you can set up the offense and where you can place your blockers (designated screeners), plus what kind of players fit the roles of the blocker and mover. Additionally, Bennett explains how you can run the blocker/mover against a zone, rebounding rules, transition defensive assignments, and more!

The wisdom and teaching points alone make this a fantastic instructional video for any coach, regardless of if you run the pack line or blocker/mover systems. If you do happen to run the pack line or blocker/mover, then watching this video will be the best thing you do all year! Get a look into the mind of one of the game's great innovators and take what you learn to make your team better this season!
