Four Keys to Scouting Your Opponent

-Pete Gillen, University of Virginia/Providence College/Xavier University

1. Read the point guard
-Do we have the advantage? If we do, how can we capitalize on it? If not, how can we get him out of sync? -Cut off the head!

2. What do they do best?
-What can we do to limit that? -Don’t let them beat you with what they do best.

3. How can we score against them?
-What pace is most conducive to us winning? Play an up-tempo game? In the half court?

4. Turnovers
-How can we win the turnover battle?
