Read & React Offense: Practice Plan 2 - Layers 4-6
by Better Basketball

To win a basketball game, you need to score. In order to score, your players need to be able to quickly read the defense, react immediately, and use the most effective move possible for that situation. The Read and React system ties these two man reads into a seamless offense that can be adjusted to any set, formation, type of player, or style of play.

Once you’ve mastered the framework, you can customize Read and React to fit your personnel and the style of play your team needs to be successful. The Read and React offense is the best way to do this because it is a principled framework that gives your players the tools they need to anticipate the actions of the defense and respond with the best possible move. It is a system that can be drilled to the point of habit.

This section will work from reaction drills through 5 vs 0 offense, up to fast breaks and full court trips.
