The 1-2-2 Press - Three-Quarter
University of Iowa head coach Fran McCaffrey has built winners everywhere he has been. His Hawkeyes have made seven postseason trips in his ten seasons. One of the reasons for Coach McCaffery’s success is his 1-2-2 press. In this presentation, he shows you how the press can be used in a variety of ways and how any coach can adapt it to fit any coaching style. Using on-court demonstration, you get an in-depth look at four different versions of the 1-2-2 three-quarter court press: Traditional, Grey, Late-Game, and Contain.
It all starts with the basics. Coach McCaffery explains each player’s role and responsibility within the press. You learn how to read an opponent’s attack, which will help in later versions of the press. McCaffery shows you how to trap at half-court and get the late trap in the front court. He also shows you how to fall back into the 1-2-2 zone and how to morph into a 2-3.
When teams figure out how to break the traditional 1-2-2 press, you can call “Grey” which is faster-paced pressure defense. It looks like the traditional press but then switches to man-to-man principles after the first pass. Opponents are forced to put the ball into the hands of poor ball handlers which opens up scoring opportunities.
A third option in McCaffrey’s pressure system is Late Game. When you are looking to seal a lead, you can use this option to force teams to dribble more and use more clock. By forcing opponents to dribble more and pick the ball up, you can also create 10-second calls. Teams are forced to go east-west instead of up the court.
Used to finish off an opponent, “Contain” forces opponents into multiple traps. You will learn how you can get the ball out of the hands of your opponent’s best ball handler. Contain also forces a lot of bad decisions which lead to turnovers and scoring opportunities.
If you have a team that is built for pressure, Coach McCaffery’s 1-2-2 zone press is for you. You will see how to create pressure and indecision. It also creates uncertainty as you learn to disguise the defense. There are a multitude of strategies in this DVD that can help any coach and team become successful. Rent this 1-2-2 press DVD today.
