The Read & React Offense isn't just a concept or theory - it works in real basketball games, even at the highest levels. Early in Read & React's existence, coaches wanted to see what it looked like in live action. Well, we've obliged. Here are some clips from the University of Iowa women, who reached the BigTen Championship game in 2010. For more Read & React game clips from the Iowa women (and teams of all levels), check out our basketball video page.

Clip 1: This illustrates what I mean by a NORTH-SOUTH drive. The help defense must be across and deep, leaving the receiver plenty of time for the shot. Simple Layer 1 stuff.
