(Rental)-Ball Line Defense
- Ball-line principles increase pressure on the basketball to increase pressure
- The offense must learn the closeout technique to force the offense onto the floor.
- For aggressive wing denial, Coach Smith recommends using his unique boxer stance
Tubby Smith will be introducing his ball-line man to-man defense. Smith's defensive philosophy combines constant ball pressure and tremendous help-side support. Smith's teams consistently finish in the top three of their conference in field goal percentage defense each year during his coaching career.
Smith will share his 10 most important defense tips, including how to apply ball pressure, stop dribble penetration and contest shots.
Do you need to increase turnovers in this season's league? Smith shows the on-ball denial and wing denial techniques that Smith has used to make his teams the league's leader in steals every year.
Smith's methods for trapping the ball backcourt in the back court will teach you how to pressurize the entire court. Smith's "morphing" technique, where he transforms his defense into an aggressive trap zone, is sure to produce a bounce pass or lob that will increase your chances of scoring a steal.
This ball-line defense system's backbone is the "One Foot in the Paint Rule". Smith begins with a "zig-zag drill", followed by 1-on-1 full court pressure. He then reinforces his defensive principles with a series developmental drills. These drills are challenging and include 3-on-3 overplay and deny, 2-on-2 full court, and 4-on-4 overplay. Coach Smith ends his drill with a 4-on-3 contest the-shot drill that teaches players how to contest shots.
Correctly positioned players are more efficient. Smith offers a simple but effective way to get your players in the right spot to apply pressure to the ball. Get the stoppages and turnovers you need to make your team successful by ordering now.
