Book Review: John Beilein’s two guard offense

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.

When I went to Cancun, I took a book from a friend of mine recently. It was Tom Jicha’s West Virginia’s two guard offense. I looked at it throughout my vacation. I was totally impressed with it and told him that he needed to get it published.

Sysko’s Fall Catalog has it out right now. It is John Beilein’s offense and he has broken it down to the simplest form. He shows all the parts of it and how to fit all the pieces together. Honestly, I was the best basketball x and o book that I had read in a while.

If you like the Princeton stuff, but think that it might be too complicated for your team then check it out. I highly recommend it. I have seen a lot of stuff lately, but it is good.

Visit to check it out.
