    Any Guesses on Coach Hoiberg's Offensive/Defensive Styles?

    I thought about this item for sometime and my guess is that, on offense, we wil something like the motion offense that Johnny Orr used to run, and on defense, we'll see something similar to Tim Floyd's defensive style. Basically, the best of the two coaches who had the biggest influence on Fred. Any thoughts?

    I think that would be the best case scenario and I'd love to see it.

    Fred's coaching influences go beyond college.

    I think he will try and install an offense style that scores more points than the opponents while I think his defense will be cenrtered around trying to prevent the opponents from scoring more points than ISU.

    This is where I found flaws in McDermott's coaching technique.

    Re: Any Guesses on Coach Hoiberg's Offensive/Defensive Styles?

    The best clues we have are what he said so from that I'd look for something similar to Flip Saunder's flex offense. I'm guessing that because he says the same three things every time he describes his offensive philosophy. "A simple offense based on solid screens, hard cuts and precise spacing."

    His description of the defense does sound like Floyd so I think the style will be similar.

    Re: Any Guesses on Coach Hoiberg's Offensive/Defensive Styles?

    It sounded like Fred was going to run a much more NBA-style offense, based off of a lot of pick and rolls, and drive and kicks. Basically the opposite of Mac's offense.

    Defensively.. not sure. I predict probably a lot of man-to-man, but no real surprises other than trying to have our team play tough. Defenses are so often a game-by-game thing anyways.. sometimes a coach will have a certain philosophy, but it's not often something other than "play tough defense".

    I really loved how he said, "If JVB has a mismatch we're gonna get it to him down low. If it works, guess what, we're gonna do it again."

    Of course this, I'm certain, will apply to any player on the court. If something works, do it until they stop you. I can't tell you how many times Craig would make a good play on the block for an easy bucket, and we wouldn't get it to him again for 6 or 7 possessions.

    At the press conference he said that his offense would be an up tempo offense based on hard cuts and screens.

    Re: Any Guesses on Coach Hoiberg's Offensive/Defensive Styles?

    IIRC, Orr's offense was also based on hard cuts and screens. I remember Fred, after well executed backdoor cut, getting an easy layup many times. Same with Jeff Grayer. If you look at the best half-court offenses in college today, almost all of them are similar in style to Coach Orr's. The NBA offense is simply too complicated to be taught in four years on a part time basis as is the case with college athletes. JO's offense was simple, yet created mismatches that were frequently taken advantage of. Something you want in college level game.

    Floyd did this with Pratt and LE did it with Fizer... among other players. Isolation was a big part of the game plan.
