Iconic coaches (Krzyzewski, Auriemma, Calhoun) and future legends alike (Self, Few, Hoiberg, Izzo, Miller, Jacobson, Prohm) are all present in this video to show you how defense wins championships. In all, 25 different defensive drills will show you new ways to improve your defensive strategies and player technique.
Utilizing both individual and team-based shell drills to build reactionary habits, these drills cover all facets of half-court defense, including on-ball pressure, help and recover, close-outs, rebounding, denying straight-line drives and face cuts, cross-screens, dribble hand-offs and more!
Individual Defensive Drills
Discover 13 defensive technique drills designed to hone the skills needed to play hard-nosed individual defense. Boxing out, jumping to the ball to prevent driving lanes, stunts, close-outs, halting straight-line drives, on-ball pressure, tracing the ball, etc. are all on display as the various coaches stress the importance of the individual component involved within the team defensive structure.
Team Defense Drills
In the remaining 12 drills, each coach uses 2-, 3-, and 4-man shell drills designed to teach help responsibilities, off-the-ball spacing, defending block-to-block screens and hand-offs, awareness of the low post weak side "rover," playing the gaps, defending cutters, etc. The coaches stress the importance of the defensive groups to work in tandem and with continuity in mind and motion.
