Coach Holladay-Post Player Development


-FavoritecMove, then Secondary Move. (Always have a counter move)

-Jump Hook, Turn-Face Up Jump Shot

-Ball Fake ->Drop Step. Keep Shoulders Parallel to the basket

-Step Out Shots (Tyler Hansborough would make 200/day in an hour)

-Face Up, 1 Dribble->Attack the basket.

-Secondary Break Jumpers (Snap the wrist)


For drill purposes-Don’t throw the ball to hand-throw a direct bounce pass to the person belly button. Be sure to Seal w/ Elbows wide and butt low. (Make Post players work, shuffle to their spots).


Post Defense=If the offensive person is not a good scorer, no need to front the post. Raised Arms doesn’t equal foul.

Wall & Box out. On Wall-Lean back not over b/c the result will be a foul.

Coach Robinson–Defense


Handling Screens–Bigs hedge, Guards fight over the top

-UNC wants their bigs to make guards change directions

-UNC likes to split up to teach defense in Group Work


Basic Shell concepts

1 pass away=Deny

2 pass away =Help Side

Everyone moves on “Flight of the ball” Retreat on the Direction of the Pass

Wants players to TALK (“Ball”,“Deny”,“Help”) Stay in Low Defensive Stance , don’t stand up




Mostly talked about his secondary break and options they read off of that. Then took time for Q&A.


Understand how to coach your team– Calm & Teach or Wacko & Push

“Better you are, more you can push them”

“Less confidence in your team, more you need to be calm and coach” “Teach freshmen how to play when they’re freshmen”

“Do what is best for the program, not for just now, long term plans” “Weak leader is one who treats everyone the same”

Has 1 on 1 meeting to discuss individual game.

After 1st scrimmage talks about how if you want to play more then do this… To play less….do this….


On The Break-If you can get ahead/pitch ahead then do it. If not, guard needs to cross sides of the floor.

Screen in transition is Hard to Guard/In backcourt.


“Have to coach players individually more so than as a Whole Team”
