Hi. Long time poster, but first post of the season. I coach middle school boys and I only get 90 minutes a week before we play our weekly game. I have a good team (decent guards, decent athletes, decent size, etc.), but I cannot get my kids to use R&R principles. R&R has worked well for me in the past, but this season has been a struggle. I don't want to resort to canned plays (which is why I adopted the R&R), but I need to do something to salvage the season. Yes, I realize the solution is drilling pass/cut, dribble at and other R&R principles, but doing those drills really hasn't gotten these kids to react to what the ball is doing. I tried resorting to this against a 2-1-2 zone that presses out - one big runs the short corners - another big screens the elbows (or flashes for a pass) - one guard up top - we get the ball to the wing. Designated big runs to the short corners and we get him the ball. Then we do a laker cut for either a shot near the paint or maybe a layup. If no pass, the guards fill and replace and until we get the ball to a cutting guard. Or sometimes the other big will dive to receive a pass from the short corner big. Stuff like that. I'm really frustrated because I can't get these kids to do even that against a zone that pressures the ball. They end up dribbling aimlessly or taking ill-advised shots. I'll keep doing the R&R drills, but would really like a formation/quasi-play just to get things running. My kids know how to pass/cut, dribble cut, hook into the zone, etc., but won't do it. Just too much standing. Any suggestions how I can get an offense running (even a semiscripted one)? Thanks for any ideas.
