Dean Smith's Point Zone Defense

with Dean Smith, legendary University of North Carolina head coach;
879 career wins; 2X NCAA Championship Coach; 4X National Coach of the Year; Basketball Hall of Fame ('83)

Coach Smith opens his "video vault" and welcomes you inside for an unprecedented look at the point zone. Fundamentally, the point zone is man-to-man pressure on the ball with a four-man zone in support. Disguising the defense is possible against baseline out-of-bounds plays and is a benefit of the point zone. Smith diagrams the two-man front to cover vulnerable areas along the baseline, the two-man trap against out-of-bounds plays and the 1-3-1 set. Rebounding coverage for guards is also thoroughly presented. Smith takes you through situational defensive coverages that come from years of experience with this zone. This segment will enhance your ability to adapt the zone to your team. This DVD is an incredible blend of today and yesterday and includes over 50 vintage game clips that highlight the great UNC teams and players through the years, as well as a classic, one-of-a-kind, on-the-floor clinic presentation by Coach Smith. In this footage, every movement and technique of the zone is demonstrated and explained. An absolute must for every basketball coach!

Dean Smith's Encyclopedia of the Scramble Defense

with Dean Smith, legendary University of North Carolina head coach;
879 career wins; 2X NCAA Championship Coach; 4X National Coach of the Year; Basketball Hall of Fame ('83)

Dean Smith's Scramble Defense is a defensive weapon that changes tempo, forces turnovers and was a major factor in Dean Smith's success at UNC over the years. The main benefit of the scramble is that it forces the opponent out of their regular man-to-man offense. A prerequisite for employing the scramble defense is a solid, pressure man-to-man attack. Everything comes as a result of players understanding basic man-to-man pressure. Coach Smith begins with the 30 series - the run and jump attack that UNC has used successfully for decades. This is particularly effective after timeouts when the surprise factor is in the defense's favor. The 40 series is ignited after the first pass to either side of the floor. All players rotate to different positions and jam passing lanes for the errant pass. Both the 30 and 40 series can also be used all over the floor. Out-of-bounds situations, free throw situations, and defending the fast break are all covered by Smith. More than 50 vintage UNC game clips put the 30 and 40 series in action. Also, Smith takes to the floor in a classic, one-of-a-kind, on-the-floor clinic to demonstrate both defensive systems. The scramble defense has become a defensive standard in basketball across the globe, and now Coach Smith breaks down this time honored trapping defense step-by-step, which will allow you to easily implement it into your program!

Dean Smith: Teaching the Shuffle Offense

with Dean Smith,
legendary University of North Carolina head coach;
879 career wins; 2X NCAA Championship Coach;
4X National Coach of the Year; Basketball Hall of Fame ('83)

Known for his innovation, Coach Smith's Shuffle Offense remains one of the game's offensive gems. Smith begins with basic position, cuts and spacing on the floor to enter the offense and the box set, which allows for easy entry into the shuffle. He shows three distinct options - the back screen with shuffle cut, the back door and the button hook move - to begin the flow of the offense. Smith demonstrates how to create easy baskets with a creative approach to offensive rebounding within the shuffle offense. The shuffle offense is extended into the full court with a secondary offense. The action off the break leads to scoring opportunities and flows right into the shuffle. Smith shows 82 game clips from his great teams at UNC that will help you see the shuffle and secondary offense in action. Smith's offensive system is time tested, will provide offensive balance and counters every move by the opponent.

Dean Smith: T-Game Zone Offense & Four Corners Delay Game

with Dean Smith,
legendary University of North Carolina head coach;
879 career wins; 2X NCAA Championship Coach;
4X National Coach of the Year; Basketball Hall of Fame ('83)

Dean Smith unveils two potent offenses that he used to guide his teams to over 800 victories and two NCAA Championships - the T-Game Zone Offense and the Four Corners Delay Game. The popular T is effective against man-to-man and zone defenses. The T-Game places players strategically on the floor to exploit the defense. Three guards work as a unit on the perimeter as the posts collaborate inside the paint and in short corners. Ball and player movement, posts dives and skip passes are all weapons against the zone. Game clips, white board diagrams and on the floor demonstration help Coach Smith dissect the details of the T-game. To preserve leads late in the game, Smith invented the Four Corners delay game. Used 107 times in his career, the Heels won 105 of these games due to its effectiveness. Five benefits of the four corners make it difficult for defenses to gain an advantage.

79 minutes. 2008.
