This defense has been the cornerstone of one of the most successful coaches and programs in the country. Coach Billy Donovan walks you through his 2-2-1 full-court man press with stunting, and the 1-2-1-1 pressure defense. Using on-court demonstration Donovan details each player's responsibilities, when and how to trap, and transitional coverage once the press has been broken. Included are basic coverages for all press breaks and breakdown drills to improve coverage and communication skills. Donovan teaches trapping areas, close down techniques, defending screens, pushing the ball where the defense wants and recovering drills after traps. He also teaches special sideline calls such as trapping off the first dribble and trapping off the first pass. An enthusiastic and impressive instructional DVD for teaching one of the most feared press defenses in the game today.
56 minutes. 2004.
I own plenty of DVDs from this site, and this is by far the best single dvd. Coach does a great job of providing drills, explaining, and building up to the 5-5 press. It gives a great blueprint of the press, which allows you as coach to play with the press and add your own wrinkles, as I did. Great dvd
In response to you guys saying "it's a man press not a 2-2-1", it's a MATCH-UP ZONE PRESS that's based from a 2-2-1 alignment. Just like a match-up zone in the half-court, the position of the offense will determine the position of the defense. So, no it's not a man press - it's a match-up zone press
This is a man to man press. If that's what you want then this is a good video.
Not a bad resource has some basic drill descriptions and techniques for applying full court pressure. However I found the Shaka Smart (a Donovan Protege) DVD more useful and more up to date. Smart goes into greater detail regarding when and how to utilize the trap as well as program mental for the VCU Havoc defense.
Very good dvd. Coach Donovan does a great job breaking down this press from 1 on 1 up to 5 man. Presents it in a fashion that is easy to follow and understand.
Let's get this straight: Coach Donovan is incredible, and his insights and the way he models coaching almost makes this video worth it. However, I'm giving this three stars for the hass-affed way Championshipproductions threw this together. First of all, Coach Donovan didn't have enough time. He said he couldn't get into the individual techniques they emphasize for pressuring the ball & closing traps. This is great for all us coaches who have fundamentally sound, disciplined players who know exactly what to do, but just need practice to fine-tune their timing and to stay in shape. Ugh. We need the whole picture here. Am I being picky? Not for $45 I'm not.
Secondly, the blurb mentions the 1-2-1-1 and the 2-2-1. It's a MAN TO MAN press, people. Any resemblance to the 1-2-1-1 or the 2-2-1 is because that's where the offense is standing.
Very well done. The build up to 5 on 5 is well organized and clearly explained not only in terms of what players should do but why. He also includes several very useful tips that he clearly learned as a player.
This is a good instructional video. Donovan give you build up drills that really breakdown the players responsibilities in the defense. The drills are easy to install and teach. My only issue was that we don't get to see much 5 on 5 action at the end. But this is a great tool for you to learn and teach the man to man full court press.
Donovan is a very impressive teacher. His presentation is extremely thoughtful, organized, and thorough. I most appreciated the detail and nuances he shares with the viewer regarding not only big concepts of his defense, but little aspects of practice drills. His teaching style is very efficient so unlike other instuctional videos he covers a lot of material in a short time.
good video and demos
