Steve Prohm Iowa State University Horns Set Plays

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.

Steve Prohm Iowa State University Horns Set Plays

The Steve Prohm Iowa State University Horns Set Plays are simple and clean plays that you can implement today, but they are unique enough that they will throw off your opponent’s defense.  One word that describes Steve Prohm is “Character”.   I saw a story about Georges Niang and Steve Prohm  where Coach Prohm had bi-weekly, private chats about their seventh ranked cyclones.  The meetings led where Nigang wanted to continue the up-tempo offense .  Niang thought that it was actually super cool  that you have a coach where he has no ego.

When Jamie Pollard knew Fred Hoiberg was leaving for the Chicago Bulls, he asked Coach Hoiberg who he should consider as his replacement and he responded with two words:  Steve Phrom.  Coach Fred Hoiberg said that reason for three reasons: “He runs everything that I run. I’ve met him, (and) he’s a man of character,’

I see some of the same set plays like the Steve Prohm Iowa State University Horns Set Plays, but I also see a lot of tweaks to the offense depending on their personnel this year.

It’s not always about the x’s and o’s, but the jimmies and joes.  That is an expression that I heard when I was coaching junior college basketball.  Character is HUGE on a basketball team, because there are only so many players.

The Steve Prohm Iowa State Cyclones have a 4 seniors in the program and they have “unfinished business” after they lost in the NCAA Tournament to UAB:

Coach Prohm has been said that he wants the best possible season that they can have for these upper classmen.  “Right now, in this moment, those seniors are my biggest priority on and off the floor.”

“We gotta finish the deal – that’s what I keep talking to these guys about,” Prohm continued. “ ‘Be phenomenal, or be forgotten.’ These seniors have had such a great run. It’s our job, as a staff and as a team and as a program, to send them out the right way.”

It’s a very odd position that Coach Prohm is in.  There is no blueprint for success for taking over a Final Four – capable team, other than the offensive playbook that Fred Hoiberg handed over to him.  All that he can do is instill confidence in his players and ride  with them during their succcesss.
