John Beilein's 2-Guard Offense

"If the Princeton is Japanese, where the Wheel is Chinese, the 2-Guard Vietnamese, and the Triangle might be Korean. They may not be the same languages, but they're similar phonics." --John Beilein, Michigan--http://johnbeilein.com/site/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/CoachPregameBoard1.jpg

 

With the recent success of the Michigan basketball program there has been much written about the next great offense: The Michigan 2-Guard Offense. This system which is currently being utilized by John Beilein (Michigan) and his former assistant Jeff Neubauer (Eastern Kentucky), is becoming the most sought after system in the coaching community today.

 

However, both coaches are very apprehensive about sharing their concepts with fellow coaches. Their system is mixture of the Princeton, Wheel, and Triangle all rolled into one. "If the Princeton is Japanese, where the Wheel is Chinese, the 2-Guard Vietnamese, and the Triangle might be Korean.  They may not be the same languages, but they're similar phonics." What I have done is given you the best interpretation of this unique offense and some of the sets we have used at the high school level that have been successful. This is definitely a perimeter dominated offense based on your ability to shoot the 3-pointer and take what the defense gives you. It is a true read and react type of offense where every pass several different counters or options depending on how the defense defends your cuts. If you think this might be a risky system, you might want to take a look at the success programs are having with this offense.
