read & react in 2022 tournament games

Gonzaga using a dribble-at (R&R layer 3) backdoor right into a dribble hand-off (R&R layer 8). Both the timing mixed with the spacing create an open layup.

Both clips in this video use combo actions with ball screens (R&R layer 8.) The first clip combines a ball screen and dribble at (R&R layer 3), while the second features a ball screen with a safety valve (R&R layer 4.)

Look for the pass and cut (R&R layer 1) in both the first and third clip in this vido and a dribble at (layer 3) in the second clip.   (Read & React pass and cut is sometimes referred to as “throw-n-go.”)

“Southern NH University Women’s Basketball is coming off our best year in 30+ years.  21-7 overall, NE10 Regular Season Champions (Northeast division),  1st in NCAA Northeast Region and hosted the NE10. 

SNHU runs the Read and React.  

Our offense was fun to watch!  We play an exciting brand of basketball, and our kids love the freedom to score! We led the league in scoring with 72.5 ppg.  We shot 42.5% FG (2nd in conference, first was 42.6%).

We had 2 First Team All-Conference players and 1 3rd Team All-Conference player.  We had one WBCA All-American Honorable Mention as well. We made 175 3s(4th in conference) but  33.8% (2nd in league, first was 33.9%)”

Customers’ reviews


Well we made our State Tournament with a 25-1 record and won our first 2 games at State. 27-3. We made lots of memories, and for an ol' football coach, I sure love coaching basketball thanks to your offense. Thank you,
T. Strohschein
You see we had a very athletic team but only one of the girls on the team was really a basketball player, all the rest of them were soccer players. Well, after a few years of implementation, we did it. We made it all the way to the State Championship and we won. That was in 2019. In 2020 we made it back to the State Semifinals but that was when Covid hit... I tell you this as a thank you for helping us teach a group of soccer players how to play basketball and win a State Championship.​

If you are questioning R&R, we just went 27 varsity games without having ever called a “play”. I certainly made points of emphasizing certain actions, but my girls learned how to adapt on their own to what the defense threw at them. They’ve learned HOW to play, not plays – and it only will get better as we move forward with a year of experience under most of their belts.
