Coach TJ Rosene has implemented the Read & React twice before – the first time ended with a National Championship. After learning from those previous experiences, he’s decided that this third year would be different.
In Emmanuel College’s first 12 practices of this season, they will work on the Read & React.
Yeah, you read that right. No defense. (I mean, there will be defense on the court, but no teaching of defense). He’s going to focus those 12 practices on putting in his entire offensive plan without any defensive distractions.
“But,” you say, “what about…”
Nope, the only two things that his defense will be held accountable for in those 12 days are communication and intensity. That’s it. They have to communicate and they have to play hard.
This footage was taken from our most recent clinic in Dallas and we’ll follow TJ’s train of thought with a series of short videos. There may be 3, or 5, or 10. I’m not sure how many parts there will be.
In fact, I’m only sure of one thing: that it will be awesome.
