Michigan State Basketball Playbookby Scott Peterman
I am proud to release the "Michigan State Playbook". Learn the Tom Izzo Style of play concerning Set Plays, Slobs, and Blobs. There are 56 plays in this playbook. It has 36 set plays, 4 Slobs, and 16 Blobs in it.
Coach Izzo is known as a Pro-Style basketball coach. In the NBA, they mainly use Sets and that is why the Cleveland Cavaliers pursued him so hard. He is known as the best set play and out of bounds coach in college basketball today.
If you don't know what a slob or blob is then here it goes. A slob is a "sideline out of bounds" play. A blob is a "baseline out of bounds" play. Michigan State doesn't just try to get the ball inbounds. They are trying to score. Their PPP (Points per possession) for Blobs this year in 37 games was .844. That is tremendous! There were great scoring on the Blobs.
Their set plays (PPP) Points per possession was .844 for 37 games was very good. I only took the plays that they consistently scored all year long. I looked at all 37 games and only took the "VERY BEST" from them.
Men's Basketball Coach Scott Peterman has coached at the NCAA Division 2 (Southwestern Oklahoma State University), NAIA (USAO), and JUCO Levels (Blinn College and Carl Albert State College) as well as high school. Coach Peterman just felt that fellow coaches, especially young coaches, need to constantly work on their “game,” just like the basketball players that we coach. We as coaches need to improve ourselves.
