I write this as my personal observations of the new Lady Vol offense as it has evolved since the beginning of the year and as I believe it is different than previous years. I started this thread to request the observations of others.
- On court offensive spacing is a priority, on court communication is a priority
- The spacing has prevented the defense packing in the paint, thus the Centers are not triple teamed.
- Screening is ongoing and directed by the players and the players are not committing moving screens
- Most noticeable for me is the less athletic mobile power forwards are offensive options 10-12 feet from the basket. Cheridene Green made a parting remark after graduation that she could shoot from outside, something she seldom did while a LV.
- The three athletic players are able to improvise in driving.
- The on-court players look for Davis as a primary pass option.
- The half-court motion offensive is coming along, not fluid yet.
- In that regard the offense does not have players standing around.
