Breakin’ It Down Secondary Style

I always liked the way Dean Smith’s teams ran the secondary break. That may be because I had a coach once who was a big Dean fan and made that a big part of our offense. Somehow it didn’t work quite as well when we ran it…
Anyway, over the years, as the Heels changed coaches and had some point guard problems, they got away from the secondary break. Out in Lawrence though, Roy Williams’ Jayhawks were running like mad, much more even that Dean’s teams ever did.
Now that Roy has set up shop in Chapel Hill, the break is back.
Don’t miss this nice graphic that shows the basic flow.
Oddly enough, the various shot options don’t seem to include Jackie Manuel.
