Film Room: A closer look at Juwan Howard’s expanding playbook

Film Room is an X’s and O’s breakdown of Michigan basketball by Gibson Pyper. Pyper has diagrammed almost every offense in college and professional basketball at The Basketball Playbook and is an expert on the X’s and O’s of the game. If you want to learn more about the concepts that Pyper breaks down, make sure to check out his new project Learn Basketball, an interactive course about basketball strategy, film study and X’s and O’s. 

Today’s Film Room looks at how Howard is leveraging Franz Wagner and Hunter Dickinson, especially in after timeout specials. 

Juwan Howard has the Michigan offense rolling and a large part of that success has been using different looks and counters to get Franz Wagner and Hunter Dickinson going. Combining NBA and college actions has allowed Howard and his staff to create effective post up sets for Dickinson and additional options to keep their best players involved.
