(Rental)-Full Court 1--3--1 Trapping
Huggins' defense was born out of necessity in the early stages of his career. It is a regular part of Huggins' program. This defense is introduced by player-by-player assignments. The goal is to split the court in half, from basket to basket. The defense will keep the ball on the same side as the offensive player once it is on the other side. Ball pressure is a key factor in keeping the offensive player away from throwing skip passes or reversing the ball. A 5-on-5 zone drill with slides is shown. Huggins moves the zone press up to the floor making it a full-court attack. It is crucial to keep the ball inbounds once it is in the court. The ball is not in the hands of players who are away from it. They must be on the line and up to the line so that the ball does not cross the area. There are two ways to play this full court trap: a regular or a speed them up approach. The goal is protected, anticipated, or trapped by the players. Each of these duties can be broken down into multiple teaching points.
