Reads and Gets

Buckle up. It’s time to break down a high-level concept and make it so simple that you can teach it to any teammate.  Too many players get stuck when they pick up their dribble too soon and don’t know what to do. What makes young players like Duncan Robinon and Tyler Hero so special is […]

Passing IQ

Passing IQ. Simple concept, yet few players actually understand it and display it in games.  It all comes down to timing. Great point guards know that the biggest difference between contested and uncontested shots is when the pass is made. Pass too early, and the shooter isn’t ready. Pass too late, and the defense can […]

Film Study: Responding to Mistakes

Mistakes happen. Teammates miss shots. You turn the ball over. Referees make ball calls. Coaches run the wrong defense. While many players spend time pointing out these mistakes, special ones spend less time worrying about the actual mistake and instead they choose to focus on their response to them. In this Film Study, PGC Director […]

Film Study: Refs and Control

Simple fact. Referees reward control. As you attack on offense in a controlled manner, not only will you draw more fouls on the defense, but you’ll also give your team an advantage by shooting more free throws, getting in the bonus sooner, and forcing your opponent to go deeper into their bench.

Get in Good Shape

It’s a simple fact. Great point guards shouldn’t have to spend time thinking about working hard when they’re in games. Too often players have to think about their conditioning in games, but at that point it’s too late. Stop focusing on conditioning, and use your energy to get others up to that same level with […]

Pro Mentality
