Famed collegiate men's basketball coach Lute Olsen from the University of Arizona takes part in the Allied Video series Basketball of the 90's with his breakdown on one of basketball's cornerstones, the big man. It has been said that if you have a dominant big man on the court, the rest of the team can be a bunch of toddlers and you would still win. Olsen takes aspiring coaches and players through the steps of developing a board crashing, slam dunking, shot blocking, soft-handed power forward/center. This video is a good lesson on how to build a great team piece by piece.
