3 Personal History First year - 1996 McLaughlin Second Year - add Box press3rd Year - Wessington add DiamondByron Hand – Half court trapTroy Wanner- DRSM – FC Man to ManCurrently we use all four types
4 Reasons for multiple presses Keep your opponent guessingDictate to themDifferent presses are successful against different teamsHelpful in late game situationsAdditional benefit – since you run them all, you practice against them all, and will help you in running your press break.
5 2-2-1 Zone Press Advantages Disadvantages Easiest to learn Least risk Don’t need to be super fast or athleticDisadvantagesThe middle is wide openYou do need 2 quick guardsDon’t always get a trapNot real aggressive
6 2-2-1 Zone Press x Teaching Points Make them inbounds to the corner Force the ball to dribble to the sideline…overplay and do NOT allow them to dribble middleHalfcourt defender on ballside will come forward and trap.Opposite side will rotate to that spot, and take first pass aheadOpposite Guard Takes away anything to the middle.#5 plays the safety man –don’t get beat deep!21345
7 1-2-1-1 Zone Press Advantages Aggressive – affects team mindset Should always get a trapPuts pressure on them to make something happenDisadvantagesVulnerable – if beatenYou need the right personnelNeed a good “safety”
8 1-2-1-1 Zone Press Teaching Points Pressure the inbounds #4 must trap the ball on entry#3 (halfcourt) takes away first pass aheadOff-ball Guard takes first pass to the middle#5 Plays Safety Position4x123
9 Full Court Man (Jump and Run) AdvantagesNever know where the trap is coming fromVery versatile – Can play many waysIntimidatingDisadvantagesYou need to have the talent to run this wellVulnerable – if beatenCan be broken by a great ball handlerHardest to learn and teach
10 Full Court Man (Jump and Run) Teaching PointsPressure the inbounds, but don’t give up the “homerun”“On-Ball” -make them put it on the floor, either direction.All players- must watch ball, and if ballhandler comes within 3 strides of them….leave their man and trap.Other players must rotate, and cover and recover…. Communication is key!If the ball is ahead of you… Sprint!
11 ½ Court Trap (1-3-1) Advantages Good for a “change of pace” Can get some easy turnoversDon’t need too much team speedDisadvantagesTough to trap a good ball-handlerLeaves open quick shot from the baselineTough to rebound out of
12 ½ Court Trap (1-3-1) Teaching Points Point (#1) Force the ball to a side.Wings (#3 & #4) Will trap on ballside, opposite will take first pass to the middle.Interceptor (#2) will take first pass ahead#5 will play safetyx1x342xxx5
13 Using Multiple Presses Year to Year different teams will have different strengths…stronger in one press than anotherYou can still use them all, just change up which one(s) you use the mostIt becomes easier to teach, and for them to learn if you use them all each year
14 Practicing Multiple Presses We introduce at least 2 before the first game (usually the and another)Over Christmas Break, we add the third one.By the second half of the season, we have added the fourth one.District and Region opponents…will usually see only one or two in our games with them.
15 We work on a different pressing or press-breaking skill daily. “Pressing Defense” Drill10 minute drillThe varsity will defend the jv.I make a lay-up and call out a defenseThe Varsity must set up that defense, if they get a steal, they try and score…if they score I may call a different defenseBasically, they have no idea what defense will be run next, every time it goes through the hoop.We will rotate players in and out…but it will stay Varsity vs JV the whole time
16 Switching during a game Out of a timeout, running the half-court trap just one timeLate in the game, need a foul or a steal, run the , or the jump and run.Switch from one press to another while shooting a free throw (tell your “halfcourt” player)Run a different type of press each quarter.
17 Final ThoughtsNot every team can be pressed. But the threat of it, will cost them some practice time, and the more they have to prepare for the better for your team.If your team has learned all of these, you can pull one out late in a game, and surprise an opponent.
