I just got home from speaking at the Montana Coaches Clinic in Great Falls. I want to thank my volunteers who stepped up to demonstrate the dribble drive offense. I am not sure they knew what they were getting into when I had them go "live", as one volunteer, Megan didn't even have shoes on. John, Kye, Megan, and my amazing assitant coaches Amy Saneholtz and Justin Scanson rocked the dribble drive!
I always enjoy talking X's & O's, but this comes to my point of taking it to the next level this week.
FIND A PROGRAM THAT PLAYS TO YOUR STRENGTHS!
When Erica Perry first came to Montana State I felt like the Matador waving my red cape for her to attack up the court like a bull only to see her waddle into the arena like a turtle. Erica in high school walked the ball up the court and passed to 6'4, then ran back to play defense.
Four years later the Matador is sweating prefusely and the bull has come to life for the Bobcats! You want to see transition or a player that can break anyone down 1 on1? Come watch Erica Perry as the BULL!
My point is that Erica is best in an uptempo game that forces her to create offense off the dribble because she has an amazing handle. I could go through my entire team and how they fit perfectly into our dribble drive motion offense.
If you are looking to take your game to the Next Level, make sure you play to your strengths, and the opponent will be dropping the red cape and running the other way!
