With amazing athlete's coming in and out of the UNC Tar Heels program, Roy Williams has designed an offense that benefits these players and is tough for opposing teams to defend. Most teams in the NCAA do not have four guys that can play above the rim making the Tar Heels nearly impossible to defend. In the play below, you will see one of the sets ran that demonstrates how UNC takes advantage of their personel.

Sometimes a play does not have to be extremely difficult to be effective. With enough movement and misdirection some plays can be used in a rec league with 7 year olds and still be useful enough to use on a high major college basketball team. "Pop" is a set that can be used that doesn't take many risk of turning the ball over and also can slow the game down to get a clean look when the opposition is on a run.

During games, sometimes the opposition feels so confident on defense that they begin to lunge for steals and pressure the ball to the point where the offensive players are uncomfortable. "Duke" is a playset that has a number of options and different looks to throw the defense off balance. If ran correctly, the defense will most likely stop playing the passing lanes and respect the offense which takes pressure off of the players.

Inbounds plays can be the difference between winning or losing a gameby two points. This is a time during the game when the ball is close to the basket and the defense is guarding from a position they are not used to being in on defense. With this being said, the offense needs to have a number of different options to go to from out of bounds. "Michigan" is a playset that forces the defense to play against their principles and often leads to wide open shots if the timing is correct.
