Good spread offense results begin with the defensive rebound and an aggressive fast break. Keno Davis' offense puts maximum pressure on the defense and will lead to changing defenses by the opponent. Coach Davis begins with the outlet pass and specific lane responsibilities in offensive transition. Early offensive opportunities are encouraged if available. From their zone spots, each player is in line to immediately run his lane.
The 5-0 break serves as a warm-up drill then progresses into live 5-on-5 play. Once in the half court, early action will depend on the defense, and Davis presents a couple of options. He shares a special dribble spread play once the ball has been reversed twice. With the court spread the offense can pick it's driving opportunities to get to the basket or dish to an open three-point shooter. The special "2" play is another scoring option within the spread offense.
