Lee Rose has been one of basketball's most knowledgeable and respected coaches over the past 50 years at the high school, college, and professional levels. Winning Basketball Fundamentals: Enhanced Edition presents his proven program for success, the same one he used in taking teams from two different colleges to the Final Four.
From offense to defense to transition play and special situations, Rose covers every tactical facet of the game and adds his insights for improving execution in each. He presents popular offensive systems—the Triangle, LA, Flex, Dribble Drive, and Motion—as well as man-to-man and zone defensive schemes, with suggestions for when and how to deploy and adjust them. Winning Basketball Fundamental: Enhanced Edition includes nine clips of offensive plays/systems and is compatible with iOS devices – iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch – using the iBooks or Kindle app.
Rose also teaches all the essential individual skills required for performing those tactics proficiently and consistently, with special tips for executing when the game is on the line. Perimeter- and post-specific instruction and drills will help players build on their skills through practice.
Coach Rose also shares his Performance Rating System—a tool he's used time and again to develop some of the game's top players. Rose explains not only how to identify strengths and weaknesses but also how to use that information to maximize the potential of individual players and the team.
Flashy and fluke plays might be fun to watch, but you can't build a successful season or career on them. Winning Basketball Fundamentals: Enhanced Edition is the proven formula for developing the solid individual skills and team tactics you can count on game after game.
