About the Author

Jerry Krause has been coaching the basics of basketball since 1959. He has experience at the elementary, high school, college, and Olympic levels, which uniquely qualifies him to help players improve their skills at all levels.

Krause is the director of men's basketball operations for Gonzaga University. During his first stint with Gonzaga, Krause was an assistant coach for eight years. In between his time at Gonzaga, Krause spent five years at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point serving as a professor of sport philosophy, director of instruction for the physical education department, and assistant women's coach. Prior to his latest endeavors, Jerry Krause was head coach of the Eastern Washington University Eagles. During Krause's tenure his Eagle teams compiled a 262-196 (.572) record.

Krause has been a leader in national associations dedicated to the continued growth of basketball. He served on the selection committee of the National Basketball Hall of Fame, the board of directors of the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC), and the NCAA rules committee. He is the NABC research chair and a member of the NAIA Basketball Coaches Hall of Fame and the National Association for Sport and Physical Education Hall of Fame. He holds a bachelor's degree from Wayne State University and master's and doctoral degrees from the University of Northern Colorado.

Krause was recognized for lifetime contributions to basketball as the 2007 Battle in Seattle honoree by Northwest Sports and Gonzaga University. He is the most widely published coach in basketball history, having written more than 30 books on coaching basketball. He resides in Cheney, Washington.

Don Meyer is the head coach at Northern State University in Aberdeen, South Dakota. His 860-plus wins put him in fifth place on the all-time list of coaches in men's collegiate basketball. Before his term at Northern State University, Meyer was the head men's basketball coach at Lipscomb University in Nashville for 24 seasons, where he reached the 700-win plateau faster than any other coach in college basketball. Named the National Coach of the Year in 1989 and 1990, Meyer was inducted into the NAIA Hall of Fame in 1993. See www.Northern.edu.

In addition to coaching, Meyer has established a coaching academy that has attracted more than 10,000 basketball coaches from all over the United States. His reputation as a coach and teacher has allowed him to attract some of the most renowned coaches, including Pat Summitt and John Wooden, to speak at his academy. He resides in Aberdeen, South Dakota.

Jerry Meyer is the chief analyst and scout for the Rivals.com basketball recruiting coverage. He is a nationally recognized basketball instructor whose expertise dates back to his high school playing days when he won Tennessee's Mr. Basketball award in his junior and senior seasons. As a college player for Lipscomb University and the University of Minnesota at Duluth, Meyer was a two-time All-American and became college basketball's career assist leader. Meyer has been a high school head coach, has served as an assistant at Vanderbilt University, and has been a head coach in the American Basketball Association. Jerry lives in Nashville, Tennessee.

Format: Paperback
This book is great!!! It's a little difficult to read through the drills at the end of each chapter, but there's a dvd to watch which makes it so easy!!!!!!! I coach girls basketball, they are 12 and 13 yrs old, many of them have never played before and I am able to use many of these chapters. If the season was longer I could use more of it, but that's for next season. Very well laid out, easy to find specific drills and again, the dvd makes it so clear and fool proof!

HASH(0x9d0ccae0) out of 5 stars Great resource book for coaches July 7 2011
By Red - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have come to realize after years of coaching one of the problems my teams had was executing under pressure. While all but one of my teams have had winning seasons, we have always struggled to win the "big one." I realized it was because we did not execute fundamentals against the really good teams and that was my fault.

So I have been working on becoming a better practice coach and better at teaching fundamentals. This book is a great source for learning all the basic skills of basketball and how to teach these skills. I wish I had gotten this book years ago.

It has potos, diagrams, etc that really help in the process of learning what you are supposed to teach, why the skill is done the way it is when done correctly and how to teach the skill.

HASH(0x9cc40abc) out of 5 stars Nice DVD April 15 2014
By James R. Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I like this dvd, it is more for a serious player. The drills are a bit boring for younger players. My 13 year old daughter lost interest because of it. I think a high school player who is really serious about developing their game would get a lot out of it.

HASH(0x9d5c2b7c) out of 5 stars Fundamentals taught by the book!! Aug. 27 2008
By Patrick McClure - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Jerry Krause and Don Meyer really bring home how to teach fundamentals of basketball through progression. They break down defensive stance, passing, cutting, screening, and more like I've never seen before. The DVD brings any confusion to a halt by explaining drills and the exact sequence needed for players to fully understand how to play the game of basketball. This book/DVD combination is a must have for all coaches!!
