    Duke University 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 more than 1,000 games and 5 NCAA Championships and earned a berth in 12 Final Fours. With the Duke Basketball Video Series you can harness Coach K's strategies for team defense, the transition game, and successful practice 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 courtside to see and hear what takes place during Duke practice sessions. Each action-filled program 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 to games. You will find the content captivating and applicable to your own improvement or to that of your players.

    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.
