The Basketball Podcast: E04 with Billy Wuczynski on Transition Offense

RELEASE DATE : 21/09/2018

In this week’s basketball coaching conversation, we are joined by Billy Wuczynski. Coach Wuczynski is a former assistant coach with Boston College, TCU and Ohio University under head coach Jim Christian. Prior to working under Coach Christian, Billy Wuczynski was an assistant coach at UNLV. The podcast starts with a discussion about unstructured offensive possessions and their value, and flows into many offensive topics including playing early and opposite in transition, 94 foot plays, a movement package, a family of plays.

  • “We believe if you can generate over 21 points per game in that kind of chaotic, unstructured situation, it makes good teams great and great teams unable to be beaten.”
  • “We really teach . . not just the play, we really teach how to play off that play.”
  • “When you’re playing with less talent, you’ve got to maximize your scoring . . because at some point you just can’t get stops against some of those great players you’re playing against.” 
  • “Our staff is extremely passionate about basketball. If you want your locker room to be right . . It better start in the front in your office.”
  • “Sometimes as coaches we cloud this thing up, we muddy it up . . at the end of the day it’s still hoop.” 
  • “It goes back to getting easy, unstructured buckets.  The easier and the more points you can score unstructured, it just makes your structure that much better.”
