`98 National Coach of the Year

Join Tubby Smith as he introduces his ball-line man-to-man defense. Learn how Smith has developed a defenisve philosophy of constant ball pressure with tremendous help-side support. This successful system of defense is the primary reason Smith's teams have finished in the top three in their conference in field goal percentage defense every year of his coaching career.

Listen in as Smith reveals his 10 essential rules for defense including techniques for applying ball pressure, contesting shots and stopping dribble penetration; the staples every defense needs to be successful.

Need to create more turnovers this season? Smith demonstrates the on-ball and wing denial techniques that have turned his teams into the league leader in steals year after year.

Learn how to pressure in the full court with Smith's techniques for trapping the ball in the back court. His technique of "morphing" his defense into a zone on aggressive traps is sure to generate a lob or bounce pass, which improves your chances getting a steal and creating an easy basket.

The "One Foot in the Paint Rule" is the backbone of the help-side defense in this ball-line system. Beginning with "zig-zag drill" and 1-on-1 full court pressure, Smith reinforces his defensive principles through a series of developmental drills. These challenging drills include 2-on-2 full-court, 3-on-3 over play and deny and, 4-on-4 overplay sag and deny. Coach Smith concludes with his 4-on-3 contest-the-shot drill teaching players to effectively contest shots.

Players are always quicker when they are positioned correctly. Smith provides a simple, yet effective system to get players in the "right spot" to apply intense pressure on the ball, without give up easy shots. Order now and start getting the stops and turnovers your team needs to be successful.
