Over the past few seasons, the term ‘Havoc’ has become the buzzword for the frenetic pace employed by the VCU Rams under Shaka Smart. It’s great fun to watch, so when Bruno Chu shared this video of highlights from the past season of Havoc, I knew I had to pay it forward.
As Bruno put it on his site, Xs and Os of Basketball:
Since making the final four a year ago, Shaka Smart’s VCU Havoc defense has been much discussed recently. More than anything schematic, it is really more of a philosophy and an attitude. Certainly it requires a certain amount of stamina to run this kind of defense, but when run properly it is very very effective.
Think A-10 opponents are ready for Havoc?
