Former University of Maryland head coach Gary Williams gives you insight into the keen basketball thinking and teaching style that helped him build a program that went to the NCAA Tournament fourteen times, including a streak of eleven consecutive appearances.

In this video, Coach Williams details the key factors which differentiate various presses. He shows you presses that both speed up and slow down opposing offenses. Starting with a man-to-man press, Williams shows how you can keep zone principles concise and accessible for your players, allowing your athletes to build and react with an aggressive mindset on both ends of the court.

Pressure Defense Concepts

This video will show you several ways you can improve on your current defensive pressure, including:

  • How working with interchangeable roles provides defensive flexibility.
  • Ways to tailor the press to adjust to different offensive sets.
  • Key details and reads that will help players become more efficient.
  • How to keep pressure dialed up in sideline out-of-bounds situations.

Utilizing Presses

Williams shows how to implement both man-to-man and zone presses for maximum advantage. By giving the defense precise goals and targets, you'll learn how to maintain pressure on the offense in the back court while protecting against easy baskets in the front court. You'll also see how Coach Williams works to get his players into an aggressive mentality versus the offense and discover the key areas of the floor that must be defended in order to hobble any offensive attack.

Finally, Williams shows how to adjust various pressure defenses to account for the talents of your own team and the strengths and weaknesses of the opposing team. The theme is to give coaches both the basic rules and rotations for the defense while also highlighting areas where coaches can change things to account for individual game situations.

Don't miss this opportunity to learn pressure defense principles and tactics from one of the game's most innovative coaching minds. Coach Williams will help you implement a high pressure defense to improve your team's ability to win games.
