The Basketball Podcast: E08 with Nate Oats on Offensive Basketball

RELEASE DATE : 12/10/2018

In this week’s basketball coaching conversation, Alabama head coach Nate Oats joins the Basketball Podcast to discuss offensive basketball.

On March 27, 2019, Oats became the head coach of the Alabama Crimson Tide. At the conclusion of the 2020-2021 regular season, and in his second season as head coach, Oats won the SEC Coach of the Year award. The Tide won the SEC regular-season and tournament titles and made the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2018. They lost the Sweet Sixteen game in overtime to UCLA, 88–78.

Prior to arriving in Tuscaloosa, Oats spent four seasons at the helm of the University of Buffalo where he took the men’s basketball program to unprecedented heights. While there, Oats led the Bulls to a 96-43 (.691) record, three MAC Tournament Championships and three NCAA Tournament appearances, including reaching the round of 32 in 2018 and 2019. As a result, he was named the league’s Coach of The Year and National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) District 14 Coach of the Year in back-to-back seasons (2018 and 2019).

Oats was named head coach of the UB men’s program on April 11, 2015 after spending two seasons as the top assistant and recruiting coordinator for the Bulls. He came to Buffalo from Romulus High School in Michigan, where he taught and coached one of the top high school basketball programs in the region.

In the podcast, one of the brightest offensive minds in NCAA basketball discusses some of his offensive philosophies. Check out this video playbook to understand more about the offensive philosophies of Nate Oats:

Nate Oats Podcast Quotes

“We don’t want our guys being robots . . . I want guys making plays.”

“Get to a corner. You will get more shots in the corner than you will standing on the wing because your man actually has to help off you.”

“Trust the system. The ball will find you.”

“We started charting paint touches and there was a pretty good correlation on at least one paint touch and our points per possession.”

“Some coaches are opposed to taking threes in transition . . okay, let me see the shot you got after you passed up the wide open three. “

“We tell our guys, I really have one goal on offense: to force one hard closeout that they can’t guard . . after that it’s over.”

“We are guaranteed to get an open shot once we get you in drive and kick basketball.”

“I’m not big on shot fake, jab step, all this other stuff . . if they’re closing on you, you either shoot, drive or an immediate ‘one more’ . . that’s it those are your only three options.”

“Every four minute time-out we’re going to tell you how we got scored on and then let’s talk about what we got do to fix it.”

    При помощи промокода SuperBoss Casino можно активировать уникальное предложение, доступное ограниченному кругу клиентов — например, подписавшимся на социальные сети или рассылку казино по электронной почте. Таким образом игровой клуб поощряет наиболее заинтересованных игроков. Купон может принести депозитный или бездепозитный бонус, баллы лояльности, кэшбек и т. д. В данный момент скачать SuperBoss на смартфон не представляется возможным. О разработке приложений для Android, iOS и альтернативных платформ также речи не ведется.

    Weitere empfehlenswerte Tische, an denen du Platz nehmen solltest, sind Baccarat Control Squeeze, bei dem du die Spielkarten quasi selbst aufdeckst, sowie Immersive Roulette mit interessanten Kameraperspektiven. Außerdem ein Besuch wert in Live Casinos ist das Money Wheel (bzw. Dream Catcher). Hier steht auch der Dealer, der eher als Moderator in Erscheinung tritt, im Vordergrund. Mehr über die tollen Streams erfährst du in unserem Live Casino Test. Außerdem enthalten alle Online Casino Spiele übersichtliche Beschreibungstexte und Spielbedienungen, damit du dich möglichst schnell auf das Wesentliche konzentrieren kannst: Spaß zu haben! Und falls du Twist-Nachschub brauchst, findest du in unserem Shop garantiert ein perfektes Paket für dich. Alle anderen Gründe, warum ein Casino auf der schwarzen Liste landen kann, sind unter dubiosen Geschäftspraktiken aufgelistet. Darunter fallen zum Beispiel nicht lizenzierte und reguliert Casinos oder Anbieter, die über unzureichenden Schutz für Ihre Kundendaten verfügen. Auch Casinos, die regelmäßig ihre Geschäftsbedingungen ändern oder deren Partnerseiten in kriminelle Machenschaften verwickelt sind oder waren, werden unter dieser Kategorie aufgeführt.
