THE OCTOPUS MAN TO MAN OFFENSE (click on book cover for more information / available in ebook format only)
The “Octopus Man-to-Man Offense” is a disciplined, multiple motion offense that combines the passing game, set plays, reverse action, functional motion, weak-side screens and the shuffle offense. The Octopus is a patterned passing continuity offense that gives both the players and the coach some structure and yet some freedom to allow one-on-one and two- on-two situations. It provides functional movement that makes overplay difficult and helps to eliminate defensive help. The shot options offered by the Octopus are from high percentage areas of the court.
