Film Session: UIndy

Justin Smith is beat off the dribble:

Newkirk comes to the ball to give help. Davis slides over in the paint to give some help, too:

Davis leaves his feet and the wrap-around pass comes to Devin Dixon on the right block:

But Davis is able to recover back across the paint and block his shot:

Perhaps the biggest offseason storyline — besides the hiring of Archie Miller — was Davis dropping weight to become more mobile and look to stay on the court for longer stretches this season after he struggled with it as a freshman. His ability to cover both sides of the lane here quick shows it’s paid off.

    Thanks for the film session. Not only are they informative, but they give me a little “fix” in between games. Got to like the off the ball screens.

    Excellent content. Hartman’s stroke is a thing of beauty.

    Guess this is the most of the game that I’ll see since I tried to record it on BTN last night and woke up to watch it before work only to find it was a Minny game.

    My worst nightmare, right there.

    I like the pick-n-roll play with De’Ron … a lot. hope to see more of the that for the whole team, as well as a few alley-oop passes. 🙂

    Was DEFINITELY not pleased.

    My favorite part of the DD pick and roll is Archie’s reaction after the easy lay-in. He throws his hands in the air as if to say, “See how easy this is.”

    It’s been harped on this off-season put that play really showed the fundamental basketball play that Archie is instilling. My bet is we’ll see a lot more of those high pick and rolls, can’t stop DD when he is going downhill like that.

    The basteges.

  • “Nothing fancy or complex here. Just reading the defense and making the smart play with no hesitation.” Kind of sounds like a definition of a well-running motion offense.

  • Thanks for spotting that Archie bit and pointing it out. You’re spot on with that observation, I think.

  • Great catch, I didn’t see that before you pointed it out. Coaches reaction that is.

    Wow! Last year, IF DD had even managed to slide back over, it would likely been a foul, not a block.
    We gonna win a few games this year!!
