1-3-1 Ultimate Morphing Zone Defense

with Kermit Davis,
Ole Miss Head Coach;
2019 SEC Coach of the Year;
former Middle Tennessee State University Head Men's Basketball Coach;
2017 Conference USA Tournament and Regular Season Champions;
led his teams to six conference championship titles in eight years (three Conference USA and three Sun Belt titles);

Kermit Davis, all-time winningest coach at Middle Tennessee State University, has a knack for the defensive end of the floor. He has created the ultimate "morphing" zone defensive package that creates deflections, causes turnovers, and creates better offensive advantages for your team. This 1-3-1 zone package has helped the Raiders win four championships over the last six years (2010-15).

In a live practice setting, you'll get the opportunity to watch as Coach Davis installs the ultimate 1-3-1 zone defense with a young team that is just learning the basics. You'll learn the rules to the offense and how it can be adjusted to cover talented shooters or to shift into a different defense mid-possession.

1-3-1 Defense

Beginning with whiteboard diagrams, Coach Davis draws up the basic set-up for the 1-3-1 zone. You will learn the roles and rotations of each player, in addition to the technique that must be emphasized to disrupt passing lanes and shut down dribble penetration.

By utilizing your most athletic players, Coach Davis teaches you how to force the ball out and away from the basket. This creates traps early in the possession along with deflections, leading to easy buckets in transition. As the ball is rotated around the perimeter, Coach Davis outlines how players can use their long athletic ability to force lob passes from one corner to the next.

Switching from 1-3-1 to a 2-3 Zone

As the ball is rotated to the baseline, the ultimate 1-3-1 zone defense changes into an aggressive 2-3. This is a great way to confuse an opponent and steal valuable time from their possession. Coach Davis demonstrates how to take your athletic forward and move them to the block while your wings put pressure on the ball. You'll also learn how to disguise your top players and make your opponent think there's no opening so they'll reverse the ball back up top.

1-3-1 Zone vs Special Situations

You'll see how the 1-3-1 can be used in special situations to your advantage. Coach Davis demonstrates how to run the 1-3-1 versus sideline inbound situations to completely disrupt your opponent's plays and challenge them to get the ball in. You will also learn how to pressure a team with the 1-3-1 by constantly trapping the ball in situations when your opponent wants to take the last shot.

Let Coach Davis teach you how to take advantage of this 1-3-1 defensive system so you can disrupt the rhythm of your opponent and create offense for your team by forcing turnovers!

Transition Offense, Man-to-Man Actions, and Zone OB Plays

with Kermit Davis,
Ole Miss Head Coach;
2019 SEC Coach of the Year;
former Middle Tennessee State University Head Men's Basketball Coach;
2017 Conference USA Tournament and Regular Season Champions;
led his teams to six conference championship titles in eight years (three Conference USA and three Sun Belt titles);
2017 Conference USA Coach of the Year (sixth overall Coach of the Year honor, including back-to-back Sun Belt Conference Coach of the Year awards in 2012-13)

With over 200 + career wins at Middle Tennessee State, Kermitt Davis has developed a well-balanced scoring offense. In this presentation, Coach Davis will show you how to push it early on offense for quick baskets versus man-to-man or zone defenses.

This up-tempo offensive system places a premium on great spacing and playing inside-out with both the dribble and the pass. You will learn the concepts and drills needed to develop this style of play with your team. Drills that develop the dribble penetration game and transition ball screen offense are also shown.

Additionally, Coach Davis will teach you how his teams attack zone offenses in transition, and also demonstrate several set plays MTSU runs in their half court offense through the Floppy and Motion series.

Dribble Penetration

Teams that are looking to score early and play transition basketball must focus on floor spacing and utilize drive and kick principles. Coach Davis uses whiteboard diagrams and on-court demonstrators to show proper spacing in the half court that will force long closeouts from defenders, allowing you to stick with the philosophy of getting the best shot for your players.

With the emphasis on valuing the basketball, Coach Davis teaches the importance of a shot fake to keep your defender on their heels. The Shot Fake & Drive drill will show your players the passing options that are created off paint touches. A special emphasis is placed on incorporating the post into the drive and kick game through spacing off penetration and post ups.

Fast Break Scoring

Coach Davis diagrams his fast break system that heavily involves ball screens in transition. In addition to explaining the basic offense, you will learn three plays that are used on the run to challenge defenses. Five breakdown drills demonstrate these concepts on the court so you can see how players use drag screens and double drag screens.

The 5 Action is a fantastic quick hitter that tries to preoccupy defenders in screening actions before running into a high ball screen. The 3-on-0 Snap Shots drill breaks down Middle Tennessee's Snap action that can be used to free up a screener in the pick & roll from various locations on the court.

Zone Offense

Learn how to attack a zone defense early with transition ball screens before flowing into a motion offense. In addition to seeing the motion offense in action, you will also get three set plays that you can use to attack zones in half court situations or on baseline inbound plays.

Half Court Sets

Coach Davis has his players rehearse set plays from their "Floppy" and "Motion" series. The team demonstrates multiple plays out of Floppy, which has guards cross under the rim to run off down screens for scoring opportunities. You will also see several variations of the Motion series, which sends guards off screens at the elbows and blocks to find ways to score.

Coach Davis' instruction is great because it breaks down actions into steps and teaching instructions with breakdown drills that you can implement right away in your practices.

Creating Competitive Practices

with Kermit Davis,
Ole Miss Head Coach;
2019 SEC Coach of the Year;
former Middle Tennessee State University Head Men's Basketball Coach;
2017 Conference USA Tournament and Regular Season Champions;
led his teams to six conference championship titles in eight years (three Conference USA and three Sun Belt titles);
2017 Conference USA Coach of the Year (sixth overall Coach of the Year honor, including back-to-back Sun Belt Conference Coach of the Year awards in 2012-13)

Kermit Davis offers an inside look at how to structure competitive, high-intensity practices that promote teamwork and communication among players. You will see the emphasis coaches place on building energy in the gym through demanding players to communicate and be engaged in every drill.

By mixing whiteboard sessions with 17 on-court drills, Coach Davis shows you breakdown drills that help to emphasize key actions in his offense and fighting through several types of screens in half court defense. You'll also get multiple drills to create a mindset of getting back in transition to set the defense.

Offensive Skill Drills

Coach Davis' up-tempo offense looks to spread opponents out to open up dribble penetration and cuts off screens. Through white board diagrams and on-court demonstration, you will see five different offensive drills that build this attack mindset on offense.

The 2-Ball Draw & Kick drill develops spacing off drives and using pin down screens to score. You'll see how perimeter players play off passes inside with screening actions through the 3-on-0 Post Entry drill. Other drills emphasize how to communicate and share the ball in transition, as well as how to read the defender in order to create scoring opportunities from off-ball screens.

Defending Screens

Middle Tennessee emphasizes 10 defensive categories in everything they do. You'll learn how these concepts are incorporated into four breakdown drills that focus on defeating several different types of off-ball screening actions.

Coach Davis uses white board diagrams, on the court walk throughs, and player demonstration to explain his strategy for defending flare screens, down screens, stagger screens, floppy action and screen-the-screener actions. Additionally, you'll see how the Blue Raiders defend middle and side ball screens with different concepts. These drills emphasize concepts that will help your players minimize breakdowns and stay attached to their match-up on defense.

Transition Defense

To prevent yielding easy fast-break points from the opposition, four defensive transition drills are utilized along with an additional 10 minute controlled scrimmage. Each drill places the defense at a temporary disadvantage, which forces the remaining unit to communicate in order to stop the ball and prevent a quick score until the trailing teammate recovers.

Coach Davis illustrates his Transition Defense Game on the whiteboard along with on-court demonstration to show you how he brings out competition while working on this phase of the game in practice. The 5-on-2, 2 in the Corner drill overloads the defense by challenging them to get back versus two players who are designated to fast break while the shot is in the air. You will also learn how you can work on special situations, such as out of bounds plays, while working on getting back with the End-Line Defensive Transition.

Coach Davis illustrates all the elements that go into planning an intense and efficient practice, and also presents a blueprint for developing a tough-minded and highly competitive team.

These drills focus on improving fundamentals, dribble penetration, ball screens, and concepts related to motion offense.

Individual Skills

Improve the abilities of your players by strengthening basic fundamentals such as dribbling, passing, and scoring off of post moves. Coach Davis uses white board demonstration and practice footage to show you the technique being emphasized in these drills. The Full Court Pullback Dribble drill teaches a valuable move in creating space against pressure defenses. Your players will learn how to score in the paint with the Post Work drill that demonstrates multiple moves on the block.

Penetration & Kick

The Shot Fake drill series will teach your players to set defenders up for the drive, then finish with a scoring move or pass to an open teammate. Your players will tighten up their handle and touch on lob passes with the Perimeter Dribble Moves drill. The Swing Shooting drill emphasizes making the next pass along the perimeter to the open shooter.

Ball Screens

Your players will train the various ways they can use ball screens based on the look the defense is giving them through four different breakdown drills. The 2-on-0 Ball Screening drill will improve your players' ability to refuse screens, hit the pocket pass, slip versus overplays, and utilize the pick and pop. The Middle Slips and High Series gives you an example of breaking down a piece of your offense to get skill work out of an action you run in games.

Motion Offense

Four different drills will develop your team's skill level at using off-ball screens in the motion offense. Coach Davis shares "Dribble Follows," his favorite motion breakdown drill. This all-purpose drill will improve your players' dribbling, footwork, pivoting, passing, cutting, screening and post moves.
