Ben Jacobson UNI Passing Game

Ben Jacobson Northern Iowa Passing Game by Dana Beszczynski

Ben Jacobson is well known for his skills as a Defensive Tactician, but those in the college game know that Jacobson runs great offensive sets as well.

This is the UNI Passing Game they ran in the Tires Pro Invitational Semi-Final match-up which went into overtime against Oklahoma.

Good cuts, screens, timing, and tremendous patience & reads make UNI so effective and efficient in the 1/2 court game.

Their defense is very stingy and when they play at their pace, UNI is very hard to beat!
