Slam dunks and behind-the-back passes may make the highlights, but consistent, correct execution of essential skills will win more basketball games for you and your team. The NABC’s Basketball Fundamentals Video Series is a complete instructional clinic on passing, dribbling, moving without the ball, shooting, rebounding, and defending for players and coaches.
Barry Collier, new head coach at the University of Nebraska, is the ideal expert for the NABC’s Defending and Rebounding Fundamentals Video. Collier is well known for his previous success as head basketball coach at Butler University in Indianapolis, and his teams are known for their stingy defense and dominance on the boards. Collier demonstrates why in this tape, teaching footwork, positioning, and a variety of other skills required to be a defensive stopper and successful rebounder.
Barry Collier is currently head basketball coach at the University of Nebraska. Previously, Collier spent 11 years as head basketball coach at his alma mater, Butler University. Under his guidance, the Bulldogs posted nine winning seasons and a record of 196-132, including five seasons with 20 or more victories.
Collier led the Bulldogs to three NCAA Tournament and three National Invitation Tournament appearances and two Midwestern Collegiate Conference (MCC) regular season titles. Collier was named MCC Coach of the Year in 1991, 1997, 1999, and 2000.
Collier's teams have been recognized as some of the most disciplined in the nation. His teams' success comes from a notable defense and a well-schooled offense, making an excellent all-around program.
Collier and his wife, Annette, have three sons, Casey, Brady, and Clay. They reside in Lincoln, Nebraska.
