Often when coming off a turnover or in any dead ball situation the defense has time to set up and place pressure on the offense as they bring the ball up the court. Particularly at youth levels, point guards can have a difficult time making the first pass to initiate the offense. Offensive players should have an assignment to get open to prevent standing and watching. The motion entry options in our broadcast video help to share a few ideas of how we can get the 2 post offense started.
