Emmanuel College Practiceby Better Basketball
During the summer of 2010, we held a few clinics for those coaches already running the Read & React. One of the two major themes was Practice Planning – how to implement the Read & React. So, we decided that Coach TJ Rosene of Emmanuel College (2009 NCCAA National Champions) should simply run a practice.
Coach Rosene never strays far from the Reaction Drills and Reaction Habits that run the Read & React. He incorporates them in everything that he does. If he’s focusing on defense, the offensive component is the Read & React. If he’s working on transition, the transition is going to end in the Read & React. If he’s warming up or just getting in shots, he’s always doing it out of the R&R Reaction Drills.
In doing so, Coach Rosene sends a clear message to his team:
This is how we play. This is what we do. This is who we are.
With this being Coach Rosene’s third season with the Read & React, you’re going to see players who have two years of the R&R under their belt, some with one, and some who are learning it for the first time.
This is a real practice in real time – nothing is staged.
