Once Kansas State coach Bruce Weber starts talking about the technical side of basketball it is hard for him to stop.

That much was evident during a virtual clinic he taught earlier this week as part of the NABC Championship Webinar Series. The topic was man-to-man offense, and he dove deep into X’s and O’s for nearly 90 minutes. He spoke so quickly and confidently that the online moderator had to interrupt him several times to give viewers an opportunity to ask questions.

Weber was full of answers. Even when a high school coach asked what advice he had for a team that featured four starters with “below-average speed” and no point guard, Weber suggested a methodical, ball-screen heavy offense that could pose problems for defenses without a shot clock.
