Basketball Plays | 13 Different Early Offense Actions by Joel Machota

Written by Coach Peterman

I have coached at the NCAA Division 2 (Southwestern Oklahoma State University), NAIA (USAO), and JUCO Levels (Blinn College and Carl Albert State College) as well as high school. I just felt that fellow coaches especially young coaches need to constantly work on their “game”. Just like the basketball players that we coach. We as coaches need to improve ourselves. That is my story and why I do this blog.

Today’s basketball plays are on an Early Offense that you can run with a 4 out 1 in motion offense.

These basketball plays are on Early Offense and they include:  doubles, drags, flex screens, isolation’s , quick strikes, ucla screens and many more actions.  There are 13 different actions that you can use on your secondary break.

We have an excellent addition to our team of basketball coaching contributors today with Joel Machota.  He is a Graduate Assistant with the University of Detroit-Mercy Men’s Basketball program and in his second year with the program. He has been fortunate to have some great seasons the past few years as Head Coach Ray McCallum and his coaching staff have changed the culture in the last 5 seasons with three 20 win seasons in the last four seasons as well as an NCAA berth in 2011 and an NIT appearance last season. Lastly, his son Ray McCallum Jr. Was just recently selected 36th in the NBA Draft by the Sacramento Kings.
