Bob Huggins (Rental)-Defensive Drills For Creating Turnovers $19.99
Defensive Drills for Creating Turnovers Nothing can turn up the heat on an offense like pressure defense. In this drills for creating turnovers video, West Virginia head coach Bob Huggins opens the doors to one of his defensive-focused practices where you will see how he builds both his full- and half-court defenses. Huggins is well known throughout the nation for his pressure defenses that lead to turnovers and easy points. His defenses throughout the years have been a big part of his 765 career wins. Using whiteboard diagrams, lecture, and practice footage; Huggins describes his philosophy of defense and takes you through many of the drills that help develop his style of play. Defensive Philosophy Coach Huggins discusses spacing first showing how to cut the court in half, shrink space for offenses, and how doing so enables trapping areas. You will hear Huggins speak of the traits his players must have in order to play good team defense. Coach Huggins prefers an up-the-line/on-the-line style of defense which is known to disrupt an opponent’s attack, take away vision, and now allow direct passing lanes. You will also hear about the Mountaineers’ approach to defending the pick and roll, when to trap, how to defend an inbound pass, scouting, rebounding, and toughness. Up-the-Line, On-the-Line Drills For Huggins, help defenders must position themselves between the passer and their man. Huggins teaches this skill through several variations of break down drills that teach proper angles on close outs and 1- or 2-pass positioning. Using 2-on-2 drills with the help of an unguarded manager, Huggins shows the proper angles defenders must take in order to deny direct line passes. Players in Huggins’ system learn to push the ball to the sideline and off of the 3-point line. They also learn to deal with back-door cuts. Eventually, the break down drills progress to 4-on-4 where players work on proper positioning and help defense. This group of drills culminates with the 4-on-4 +1 drill that puts the defense at a disadvantage forcing players to scramble and communicate. Position Specific Drills Huggins breaks down drills for individual positions. Perimeter players work on close outs and applying maximum on-ball pressure. Post players go through five different drills designed to improve their on-ball defense. The 1-on-1 Fast Break Drill challenges post players to protect the rim against an attacker operating off a full speed dribble. Full Court Pressure For Coach Huggins, diagramming the press is something that is difficult. He bases his press on taking away what an offense does best and exploiting weaknesses. You will see five drills including the Flick Drill which teaches players how to create fast break opportunities by forcing a turnover with a back tip to a teammate. Post players work on playing up the line to deny flash cuts by players up the sideline. You will also see back line defenders shifting from denial defense to intercepting passes as help defenders. Posts also work on defending the rim in a 2-on-1 situation trying to force an extra pass. All of the drills in Coach Huggins’ 111-minute video are designed to help you raise the pressure of your defensive system and force more turnovers. Rent this drills for creating turnovers DVD today.

Breakdown Basketball Defense Drills For Individual & Team Defense by Roy Williams Instructional Basketball Coaching Video
Roy Williams (Rental)-Breakdown Basketball Defense Drills For Individual & Team Defense $17.99
Roy Williams: Breakdown Drills for Individual and Team Defense If there is one thing that has helped North Carolina head basketball coach Roy Williams be successful, it is defense. Coach Williams has won over 800 games in his career, been to nine Final Fours, and has three national championships to his credit. In this video, Coach Williams discusses the “22” half-court defense and individual and team drills that have helped him produce all those wins. Defense is about forcing an opponent out of their offense resulting in either a bad shot or a turnover. Coach Williams explains how his Tar Heels go about making opponents uncomfortable. The Basics Defending a player with the basketball is one of the more difficult skills to learn in basketball. Coach Williams starts at the very beginning – the stance. Players must learn the basic defensive stance in order to successful defenders. On-the-ball defense is emphasized since a dribbler must be constantly pressured. Coach Williams shows you how he teaches his players the stance so that they may eventually become quicker in moving laterally. Coach Williams goes through three separate drills designed to improve that lateral quickness and help defenders stay in front of a dribbler. Players learn how to navigate through multiple screens in what Coach Williams calls the Mine Field Drill. The Deny-Help-Deny Drill works on moving quickly from the help position to deny. Off the ball help defense is one of the keys to breaking down an opponent’s offense. The final drill teaches players the closeout and helping off of their man. Game-Like Situations Coach Williams will put players in a 4-on-4 situation emphasizing both on-the-ball and off-the-ball pressure to create an almost game-like atmosphere. A thorough breakdown of each player’s position and their responsibilities is given. Those who play for Coach Williams know that giving up a baseline drive is simply unacceptable. This is explained as well as pressuring the ball, denying the next pass, closing out, and more. The 4-on-4 drills progress, ultimately, to a live, full-court 5-on-5 situation where defenders must learn to work in transition. Players learn to “Guard Their Yard” as Coach Williams preaches and take pride in playing sound pressure defense, something that has helped Williams lead North Carolina to three national titles.

Hurley has taught and modeled these habits throughout his four decades-plus as a coach and his teams have been remarkably consistent as a result. In addition, Hurley sets the expectation that practice will always be harder than games. Hurley establishes this at the beginning of every season and it helps players strive to work on their weaknesses to improve the team.

Roy Rana (Rental)-A Foundation For Success $17.99
Man-to-Man Defensive Fundamentals: A Foundation for Success In this video, learn the philosophy of Roy Rana, head basketball coach at Ryerson University in Canada. Rana’s defenses were crucial in his leading the Canadian U-19 National Team to a gold medal at the 2017 FIBA championships. Learn how Rana teaches players to stop pick and rolls, play lock down transition defense, and build outstanding individual defenders. Individual Defense Fundamentals In today’s game, players need to understand how to defend dribble penetration, stop easy transition baskets, and defend any pick-and-roll situation. Coach Rana uses three different 1-on-1 drills to teach the proper footwork in the stance and closeout. Coach Rana then progresses to 1-on-2 and 3-on-3 situations where players learn to stunt, recover, and work on help side defense. Pick and Roll Defense Defeating the pick and roll has become a necessary skill for all players on the floor. Coach Rana will illustrate how your players can ice a ball screen all while maintaining sound help side defense. The pick and roll comes in many shapes and sizes and players must become comfortable in defending ball screens, skip passes, and dribble hand-offs. All are explained by Coach Rana in this video. Transition Defense One of the more common situations that defenses face is the shorthanded 5-on-3. Coach Rana describes how to buy time for the remaining defensive help to recover. Players learn how to stop the ball, guard the basket, and defend the first pass. Doing so can give defenders enough time to recover into a 5-on-5 situation. Coach Rana stresses communication as a key to stopping opponents at half court allowing defenders to get back into an even situation. Special Situations The end of a game presents a number of situations that, if practiced properly, can put more Ws in your win column. Defending late game situations can increase your propensity to win. Defending an out of bounds play under the basket with less than 10 seconds to play or a sideline out of bounds with less than five second are situations that, if taught correctly, can improve your team’s winning percentage. You will witness Coach Rana’s amazing attention to detail and see firsthand how man-to-man defense in all situations leads to success. 78 minutes. 2016.
