thmscrn3, I see that your team is running a fastbreak offense.  This is an offense that fatigues your players much quicker so it is important to use your depth to keep your players fresh.  I noticed that you are only using 10 players each game you should use all 11 that you  have available. To have a successful fastbreak offense you need to have a deep bench of players with high ATH, SPD, and STA.  The nature of the fastbreak is very quick movements and quick passing so it is also important to have players with good BH and PAS attributes otherwise you will give up a ton of turnovers.  In order to use your depth you are going to have to get creative with your depth chart and your distribution settings so that the players with low attributes are just role players.  If you want more in depth tips and suggestions send me a sitemail. 

I am more then open to answer any questions for new coaches. Welcome!

I have two division 2 teams that run a full court press defense. As for my Central Missouri (Knight) team, I have the highest rated overall team for points in my division yet I am getting beaten and even slaughtered by teams with much lower rated players.  I think my shooting percentage is too low but after several seasons of trying all kinds of tweaks, I am at a loss.  Please help me to solve the team that is great on paper but does not get results (probably through coaching error)

It is funny now but after writing my post, I figured out my problem was that my shooting percentage was too low and I was fouling too much.  I would still love to get feedback on my team, but I seem to have solved the problem.

I am the coach of Lewis in the GLV conference in Division 2 Rupp. Generally in my past seasons I have had problems I could correct or atleast have an idea on how to correct, but this years team I am having a hard time adjusting. I have had 4 games so far this season and my players are always fouling out or are close to fouling out. I have tried adjusting my scheme to adjust, but nothing seems to work yet. Any help would be appreciated, Thanks

Yes, if use press/zone combo then it's only half court press than zone.

Hello,i just wanted to introduce myself,I will be coaching Mt Union D3 Smith world starting next season. I was in here briefly way back in seasons 1 and 2-I actually did ok,I got to the elite 8-but I may be needing some basic recruiting tips. I only need one player for this year,a center. I will be running MTM defense and a motion offense. What are the best qualities I should look for in a center? My instinct tells me look for defense first. Any comments will be appreciated,I believe my recruiting period starts next week.

From what I can see real quick, I would use Cole set distro to 8 at -2, Schroeder to 6 at +1, Gordon to 4 at -2, and Calvin to 4 at -1.  They are you're best scoring options in my opinion
