Bialek’s pressure defense creates an environment in which you can play as many players as possible and it is flexible enough to be combined with any half-court defense.

Run and Jump Press On-Court Demonstrations
Coach Bialek begins the on-court segment by laying out the foundation of the defense as well as the basic reads that players must look for in order for the run and jump to work. The pressure begins immediately upon the inbounding of the ball. Guards are tasked with forcing the ball to the sideline or to the middle. Coach Bialek then offers to the most important rule of the run and jump defense – do not dive at a pass and allow a 3-on-2 the other way.
Coach Bialek also offers up an alternative form of defense if an up-tempo, aggressive style is not suited to your program. Coach reviews a contain style of full court defense that takes away passing lanes and forces ball handlers to use as much time as possible. It is a defense designed to wear opponents down over the course of a game.
Run and Jump Press Defense Drills
As with the installation of any system, a number of drills are necessary to prepare players. Coach Bialek starts with the basic 1-on-1 full court drills teaching players how to get ahead of and cut off a ball handler. One of the keys with any pressure defense is defending in a disadvantage situation. In the 1-on-3 Full Court Drill, defenders learn to sprint from one ball handler to the next in an attempt to prevent the ball from going straight to the basket.
Drills progress to a 4-on-4-on-4 Continuous where Coach Bialek emphasizes the need for players to rebound, outlet the ball, and get up the floor as quickly as possible in transition.
