I came across another very good play reference book, “The Basketball Encyclopedia of Plays” by Vonn Read.

Vonn is a former WNBA coach and college assistant.

Vonn Read

Vonn has tremendous basketball knowledge and a complete understanding of the game… especially as it pertains to offensive plays, offensive systems and scouting.

Currently, Vonn is in the process of establishing a website and making this book available to all coaches.

In the mean time, feel free to email Vonn or us and we will get you the information you need.

This is a very good resource for a HUGE amount of offensive basketball information.  The plays and sets can be implemented at any and all levels of basketball.
