You will keep opponents guessing with where the traps are coming from and HIllsman shares the teaching points behind who traps and when. Trapping up the Sideline Coach Hillsman goes against traditional philosophy and demonstrates how he traps from behind when the ball is brought up the sideline. Hillsman believes the traditional approach leaves the corner 3-pointer open. To counter that, Hillsman’s defense traps the ball after it is brought across the half-court line. This usually forces a cross-court pass that is susceptible to tips, deflections, and interceptions. Signals for traps are explained by Hillsman and he shows you how to get into man-to-man, a 2-3, or a 3-2 zone defense after the press has been broken. Coach Hillsman also shows you how to convert from a matchup style press to more of a zone press. This video shows you how to apply maximum pressure to your opponents at all times.
