Basketball is an intricate game the involves many different processes, analyses of actions and their effects, and integration of different styles. Undoubtedly it is fun to watch a crisp and productive offense, but these offenses result from the implementation of complex offensive systems. Systems include not just plays, but the actions that produce those plays and the concepts that provide the foundation. In my thesis I have constructed a pass heavy playbook, filled with basket cuts, on and off ball screens, aggressive dribbling toward the basket, and a spaced and balanced court. They combine to form the offensive system that serves as my Senior Honors Thesis.
