Coach Sutton's concept of defense is to force turnovers and create offense on the other end. The "55" is a 2-1-2 full court zone press and is a defensive cornerstone in this program. While doing this the opponent will become fatigued, leading to more success. Defensive principles are important and include: Ball pressure, containing the dribble, force the ball into trap areas and up the sidelines. Sutton's scramble/recovery mode is based on closet man/closest ball. The first press illustrated by Sutton is the 2-2-1 zone press. The first line of defense contains two guards and they apply pressure first. The two half court players have middle and deep coverage based on ball position. They are also used as interceptors when longer passes are thrown. The last player has the back line and protects the basket. Sutton shares another press, 56, that starts in a 2-1-2 alignment. Both presses are tools to dictate tempo and speed up a game to the disadvantage of the opponents in many ways.

Disappointing. No breakdown drills. Just 5-on-5 demonstrations, which is only a little more helpful than diagramming everything on a chalkboard. Im disappointed with so many of the products Ive received from Championshipproductions, because they just film somebody who has thrown a talk together instead of producing a good video. Come on! Did the producers really sit down with Coach Sutton and outline all the things that would be most useful in teaching coaches how to run the 2-2-1 press? No, they just filmed a coach talking, slapped a price tag on it and stick it to us. If Im spending $45 (with shipping) I want a product that will teach me more than some YMCA rec-league coachs blog.
