Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In this instructor's guide, Krause, a 30-year coaching veteran, offers comprehensive assistance for developing a daily and seasonal basketball practice plan. Skill areas such as shooting, rebounding, fundamental movements, defensive and offensive play, ball handling, and team concepts are organized into a workable format. Tips for coaches on overcoming specific problem areas are included, as well as suggestions for basic practice drills. However, the book's real strength is in its emphasis on teaching basketball fundamentals correctly. Basketball Skills is an outstanding resource, potentially valuable to novice as well as experienced basketball coaches. It is highly recommended for serious sports collections.-- Kenneth Tillman, Trenton State Coll., N.J.
Krause explains all of the individual skills and the basics of team play. Includes drawings, diagrams, and drills. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
