With the season coming around quickly coaches are looking for sets to use with their teams. One play that will be very useful is the set called 2 Twist. This play works great for teams that have true big men who really cannot space the floor with their jumpshots.

Basketball may be played at different speeds and styles all over the world but many of the same sets are ran throughout the world. This was shown in the Rio Olympics when Spain's national team combined two common sets with an elevator screen and horns.

Big men often feel like they do not get enough touches throughout an offense which causes them not to play hard. A very common but effective play that can be used on many levels of basketball to help this is the horns set. This set causes bigs to be in constant movement while keeping the floor spaced out for drive opportunities. Also, the way the play is set up the bigs are the first option to score and even if they pass up a shot they get touches to keep them happy on the floor.

When dealing with high level players, such as the ones that attend Kentucky, complex sets are not always necessary. Instead, coaches try to come up with plays that allow their players to make things happen and open up the floor. Spacing is always a big key in any set and ball screens are great to use for guards that have a good handle and can make plays.

The 76ers had a huge pick in this year's NBA draft with Ben Simmons and now they are looking to run sets that will help them turn their program around. Sideline out of bounds plays are times when you can catch an opponent sleeping and find players for open shots. Most successful plays have shots that end up at the top of the key or a lob over the top for an easy lay. The play used this summer league demonstates a way to get a shot late in the game when you need a 3 pointer.

Throughout this week, the NIKE Boys Basketball Camp at Greater Atlanta Christian had exciting and great moments that all led up to Championship Friday which could only be described as thrilling for all staffers and campers as well as the perfect close to an awesome week. That morning, the campers filed into the gym with an extra bounce in their step. Everyone's eyes reflected with excitement for the fun activities ahead. The first item on the agenda was the Living By Numbers competitions followed by a quick review in individual skills stations. Each day the campers rotated between 3 different skill stations. Individual skills, 3on3, and classroom session help teach all parts of the game to the campers, developing multi-faceted and knowledgeable players.
The first championship round was the 5on5 games. The NBA, College and high school division championships were balanced throughout the week. Next was our Living By Numbers Championships. With so many returning campers, there was a lot of anticipation of who will be selected. The Living by Numbers (LBN) program online has been extremely beneficial to most of the campers. Lastly, the crowd favorite was 3on3 Cut Throat Championship. All week the campers have been earning points and learning different ways to be successful with their teams. Coaches, players, and parents enjoyed the intensity during the 3on3 games.
Championship Friday ended with our NIKE Awards Ceremony. All the campers received camp T-shirts, workbooks, player evaluations, and various fun prizes. Below is the list of LBN winners and the photos of the individual winners. this was a special group and cannot wait to return to Greater Atlanta Christian!
