Boyle and his team won the 2012 Pac-12 Conference Tournament after finishing only 5th in regular season play. Before taking over in Boulder, Boyle was the head coach at Northern Colorado. He took the Bears from a four win season in 2007 to a twenty-five win season in 2010. That year, Northern Colorado made it to the CIT Second Round.

High DHO Pitch

The guards start in a stack underneath the post players. 2 gets the ball on the wing and 4 flashes to the high post. 4 gets the ball and dribbles at 3 to give him the ball with a dribble handoff. 3 drives in the lane looking to score or kick out.

Horns DHO Duck In

1 dribbles off of the horns ball screen from 4. 4 rolls and 5 steps out to the top of the key. If 5 gets the ball, he turns to dribble at 3 on the left wing to give 3 the ball with a dribble handoff.

Weave to High Roll Replace

The handoff actions are used in a weave between the guards on the perimeter. Once 3 gets the ball, 5 sets a high ball screen as 3 comes off of the handoff from 2. The weave action can lull the defense to sleep, and the ball screen can be set at any time in the play.
