Duke University's men's basketball program has been the model for success in Coach Mike Krzyzewski's years at the helm. Under his direction the Blue Devils have won over 400 games, two NCAA championships, and earned a berth in seven Final Fours. Now you can harness Coach K's strategies for team defense, the transition game, and successful practicing to make your team better than ever.
The "Duke Basketball Video Series" offers special insight into the key components that made all of those Duke wins, championships, and awards possible. You will be transported right to Cameron Indoor Stadium, to see and hear what takes place during Duke practice sessions. Each action-filled tape includes Coach K and the Duke team explaining, demonstrating, and correcting through
- coaching points, - individual skill instruction, - tactical team preparations, and - practice drills.
Action footage shows how lessons learned on the practice floor are transferred successfully to games. You will find the content aptivating and directly applicable to your own improvement or to that of your players.
Duke is known for its tough team defense, and four Blue Devils have been chosen Defensive Player of the Year during Coach K's tenure. "Team Defense" shows how you can transform five individual players into a single, basket-denying unit. From the trademark floor slap to the half-court trap, this tape is a complete clinic on the techniques required to fulfill individual position responsibilities and the tactical adjustments required to stop offensive attacks of all kinds.
Duke's emphasis on beating their opponent in switching from defense to offense and from offense to defense has now become a hallmark of their success. Very rarely do they give up an easy fastbreak basket, while they score many breakaway buckets themselves. "Transition Game" shows that this advantage is developed on the practice court by design, drilling, and desire, and it describes how you can achieve this advantage for yourself or your team.
"Championship Practices" provides a unique behind-the-scenes look at how Coach K and his staff plan and conduct their practice sessions to produce powerhouse teams. From overall season objectives to specific player teaching points, this video shows how you can transfer the blueprint for success to players. Each element of practice is broken down into modules of instruction as Coach K teaches, corrects, reinforces, and attends to all aspects of the game in his classroom on the court.
