Coaches it's been a while and I wanted to see where some of you are as far as your program using the read and react. This past year I took my team back to the middle school championship and won finally. We finished with a 15-1 season and I pretty much lost all my core of the read and react. Kids that had been in the system for 3 years taugh me something this past season. The toughest defense that I saw all year was a 1-3-1 and a m2m run and jump. But we found was to handle those defenses and it really made me a proud coach of my teams I.Q and improvement. I would start all my players in 5 Out and they would always end up in a 3 Out 2in? I was scared to run this formation because I thought players would stand and watch. I went with a 2 guard front and ran the other guard baseline. The two post players were free to set ball screens and post up. This was mainly vs. m2m and 1-3-1. I got laker cuts, circle movement, post slides, and basically my two main guards broke defenses down and finished in the lane. This summer I didn't have a player over 5'10. I went with 4 guards and 1 one big. But I noticed that I had a guard that could really post and score inside and we beat some big teams, and aau teams. The big I have sets great screens and can score around the rim. The big guard I have can score inside and shoot the ball very well from the outside. I was thinking that I will teach all my guards the inside positions because it looks like we will be small. Every guard will be able to post up and play outside. One good thing is that I have shooters and very good guard play. What would you guys do if you didn't have but one big on the team and your team was small?
