The Dribble Drive Offense For Guard Oriented Teams

The St. Andrew Knights are not the most outstanding players in the league right now.  But they are certainly not to be taken lightly.  They may have fewer offensive options than other teams, but enough talent and grit to give the competition a run for their money.  Perhaps they can look at the dribble drive offense.

The Knights are a guard-oriented team, which is exactly what the dribble drive offense was designed for.  In many cases, the dribble drive does not focus on one player alone, which gives the team that uses it a certain amount of flexibility and unpredictability.


It all starts with an offensive move from the point guard, who takes the ball closer with a short cut towards the middle of the field.Then as he cuts outward, the rest of the players will adjust, according to how the defense is holding them.


In principle, the dribble drive offense always will leave a man open to take a three point shot.This is why an offense such as this one should be executed by a shooting team.In essence, the dribble drive does not work for any team which does not have a lot of sniping options.


This also means that passing the ball should be accurate, which is also made more predictable in the offensive sense if the players without the ball know where to position themselves with respect to the defense of the other team.

The forwards and centers are also advised to be able to take medium range shots consistently, so that the defense does not solely focus on the outside.


This just might be what the Knights need.
