John Beilein's 2-Guard Offense
With the recent success of the Michigan
basketball program there has been much written about the next great offense:
2 Guard Offense.
This system which is currently
being utilized by John Beilein
(Michigan) and his former assistant
Jeff Neubauer (Eastern
Kentucky), is becoming
the most sought after system in the coaching
community today. However,
both are very apprehensive about sharing their concepts with fellow coaches.
Their system is a mixture
of the Princeton, Wheel, and triangle all rolled into one. Although Beilein
himself disagrees with this assessment, his take is "If the Princeton is Japanese, we''re
the wheel is Chinese and the Triangle might be Korean. They may not be the same languages,
but there''s a similar phonics
there." What I have done is given you the best interpretation of
this unique offense and some of the sets we have used at the high school level that have been successful for us. This is definitely a perimeter dominated offense based on your ability to shoot the three point shot and take what the defense gives you. It is
a true read and react type offense where every pass has at several different
counters or options depending on how the defense defends your cuts. If you think this might be a risky system, you might want to look at the success both of these programs are having on the offensive end of the floor.
