5 on 0 Cycles - Options

See Blog Post - Fast-Break Cycles.

5-on-0 fast-break trips are a practice staple. Start from one end, or have one group with a coach at each end (they can huddle with coach while waiting their turn). To start play,

  • inbound an intentional make
  • outlet an intentional miss
  • a coach or player shoots, inbound a make or outlet a miss
    • John Leonzo - players jog in a circle, coach tosses a ball up and calls the name of a player who rebounds, play it like a miss, score and inbound at the other end.

Usually score a layup on each trip, 4 inbounds (Florida, Six cycles), or the first big inbounds (Shootout). Variation - one shot only:

  • Petitgoue - always outlet or inbound to the point guard
  • Enfield - 4 is always the rebounder, inbound on a make
  • Haefner two trips - everything is a miss, rebound and transition the other way
  • Matt Hackenberg (see below) - rebound, outlet or push it on a make or miss.

Optionally include or allow perimeter shots (Schuring cycles, Grinnell run the floor), or take only perimeter shots (Six cycles - 5-cycle shots).

Trips can be scripted (Florida, Six cycles) or freelance (Shootout, Grinnell, Beep-beep), using a primary fast break, secondary break (Petitgoue), ballscreens (Enfield, Florida, Tennessee), or other offensive sequences.

Build up the number of cycles, e.g.

Roy Williams - go back and forth running plays that are not calls, then plays that are calls.

Ensure good spacing in transition, e.g.

Grinnell - everyone except the shooter offensive rebounds and must get both feet inside the lane before they can begin a return trip. The shooter rotates to the top of the key for a kick-out pass after an offensive rebound.up
