A collection of X's and O's, clinic notes, film, and other things I like 


Kevin Eastman on Post Play


1. Own the mid-line- the closer to the midline you play, the less skill you need

2. Tape a miniature in the mini-lane, get some depth

3. Don’t post across

4. Give them in game goals

  • 3 free throws per half

  • So many rebounds in a quarter

  • Get one pass ahead layup per half

  • Update them when they come out of games, during time outs

  • The role may not be what you want, but it’s what we need to win a championship

5. If a big can find a niche, he will find the floor, you must have an energy niche

6. There may be bad first shots, but seldom are there bad second shots

7. When bigs run the floor they are like Velcro, it sucks in the defense...running rim to rim requires no skill but tremendous commitment and will

8. Get the ball in the paint 60 times a game (NBA) 48 a game (NCAA)

9. Run rim to rim in 3-4 seconds

10. You cant rebound too much... the more you go after the more you get

11. Concentrate on the middle and opposite wedges when you rebound
