(Rental)-Championship Man To Man Defense
Man to Man Defense with Matt Painter
Matt Painter has built his Purdue basketball program on the foundation of a man to man defense that is consistently among the nation’s leaders in field goal percentage defense and defensive rebounds. Painter has earned four Big Ten Coach of the Year awards and taken the Boilermakers to two Sweet Sixteen appearances, including 2019 when Purdue made it all the way to the Elite Eight. In this video, Coach Painter provides a lecture segment where he discusses the philosophy of his defense and an on-court practice segment where you will see the Purdue defense in action.
Ball screens are prevalent in all offenses and defenses must be prepared. Coach Painter shows you how his players beat ball screens. It begins with loud communication so that all players are on the same page. Painter goes on into great detail with his players to prevent a ball handler from getting to the rim.
Coach Painter has built the Purdue defense on size and that size has helped the Boilermakers control the rim effectively with good post defense. Here, he shares a technique his players use to push players out of the post. Purdue also puts pressure on post players with the “Scrape” and “Snap Back” techniques by guards.
In 4-on-4 drills, Purdue players demonstrate these various concepts as well as how they optimize defensive rebounding through the spacing of help-side defenders. Perimeter players are challenged in the drill having to deal with constant cutting action as well as providing help in the post and maintaining awareness of their man.
Coach Painter shows you a number of different versions of the Shell Drill and how you can use it to emphasize either post or perimeter play. Some variations work on developing closing out and positioning. Others focus on providing early help on dribble penetration. Using both lecture and on-court demonstration, Coach Painter adds layers to the Shell Drill including a description of how he counters teams that are effective at curling screens.
The heat gets amped up in the Perfection Drill as players strive to do everything right on defense through an entire possession. Painter makes the drills more competitive by penalizing the defense for allowing scores in a half-court 4-on-4 setting.
Using a team approach that emphasizes keeping the ball out of the paint, Coach Painter has turned Purdue into a college basketball power. Coaches can learn Painter’s philosophy and system and build the foundation for a successful defense. Rent this man to man defense DVD today.
