1-2-2 3/4 Court Press & 1-1-2-1 Three-Quarter Court Pressure Defense
With two national championships in 2016 and 2018, Villanova head coach Jay Wright is one of the nation’s top college basketball coaches. He is one of the country’s best teachers as you will see in this video where Wright focuses in on his three-quarter court, 1-2-2 3/4 Court Press defensive pressure scheme.
You will see four base strategies that can be employed to run the three-quarter court 1-2-2 defense. You will also see how you can convert back into a 1-3-1 or a 2-3 zone. Wright also shows you to be effective against ball screens when defending zone offenses.
Basic Multiple Defense Concepts
In order to teach anything, coaches must first understand the philosophy behind what they are teaching. Coach Wright provides his viewers with all of the knowledge needed to teach the 1-2-2 three-quarter court defense. He shows you the setup, where players should play based on their physical attributes, and give you five reasons why you should run a press. Coach Wright also covers the rules and responsibilities for each position in the defense.
Coach Wright then goes into how defenses must prepare for what offenses will do. He’ll cover skip passes, ball reversal, and more. He breaks down the various defensive scenarios to show you the following:
- Learn how to attack small and retreat big and how to fake the trap and then trap
- Learn how to keep the ball out of the middle of the floor
- Learn how to teach players to get the ball to one side of the defense
- Learn how to get back on defense to avoid giving up an open 3-pointer
1-3-1 and 2-3 Defenses
Coach Wright shows you how to convert back into a 1-3-1 or 2-3 out of the three-quarter court press. You will see:
- How to teach your players to stay aggressive while playing zone defense
- How to tag someone so players know who their man is and who they are boxing out in a zone defense
- How to use man principles all while playing zone defense
Coach Wright masks the 1-1-2-1 as a 1-2-2 3/4 Court Press and shows you how to convert back into a 2-3 zone. It’s a more conservative press and is best used when playing a half-court 2-3 zone. As Wright moves deeper in to this segment, he discusses the rules and responsibilities for each position in the 2-3 zone. The key is to make sure every player is matched up with an offensive player on each shot.
Guarding Against Ball Screens
Because of the use of so many ball screens in today’s offenses, Coach Wright shares with you how to deny shooters off ball screens as well as how to go over or under a screen depending upon the skill level of the player they are guarding.
