Odom's dynamic, up-tempo style of play forces the hand of any defense, including some of the highest rated lock-down defenses in college basketball. In this video, you'll get the inside look at Odom's motion offense and how to teach his style of play through various fundamental drills.

Drills

Coach Odom starts every practice with a passing drill. Getting your players moving and excited for practice is a great way to open your team's preparation. You'll see what Odom deems 'freelance ball handling' in which players are given the freedom to be creative and learn to handle the ball. Both guards and posts develop their ball handling skills during this time.

Once players are loose and have practiced a skill they want to work on, you can transition into building your half court offense. In Two Man Ball Screens, your players will learn to work together and play together. Players discover how to recognize and read the defense, then react accordingly to create a scoring opportunity. Odom teaches the side ball screen, angle ball screen, middle ball screen, and how to clip or fake the ball screen. These are excellent drills that will help players transition into motion offense shooting. In UMBC's shooting series, players get up game shots and learn how to get open using a V-cut, drive and kick, or a flip back pass to create scoring action.

Motion Offense

Beginning in the full court, Coach Odom teaches the fast break system that was so successful against a variety of defenses. Players will be trained to hunt for their shot within the first 7-10 seconds of the shot clock. This puts pressure on the defense to sprint back. The keys to getting a good shot are receiving a quick outlet, being creative as players aim for the paint, and searching for open 3-pointers and layups.

Odom showcases his fast break system and half court offense with a 12 second drill. You'll learn how to use drag screens, double drag screens, thru cuts, back cuts and more.

Odom's exciting look at his team's fast paced style of play will show you, firsthand, the hard work, attention to detail and integral building blocks for a program on the rise!

Every scrappy, tenacious team is built behind the scenes when no one is watching. This video featuring Coach Ryan Odom gives you many of the drills that he used to construct his program from the ground up. You'll see a variety of competitive exercises that you can implement with your own team to prepare them to beat any opponent on a given night.

Drills

A great practice is built on learning game-like situations within the drill setting. Odom demonstrates a variety of exercises his program uses daily to build their players' ability to defend and score.

In 1v1 Closeouts and 1v1 Rebounding, athletes must pursue the ball to get a quick outlet while sprinting the floor and looking for an open 3-pointer or layup. V-Cut Passing helps ensure players communicate as they pass the ball up the floor, simulating a fast break. Your players will learn to catch with two hands and explode to the basket as they get close
