Coach Huggins' teams are known for their aggressive, no nonsense approach to playing the game. This DVD focuses on pressure defense and how Huggins' teams have always thrived on pressuring the opponent. Pressure defense starts with an emphasis on guarding the ball, steering the ball and putting the ball in areas for trapping purposes. The box theory states that the ball is pushed to a side, therefore making the size of the box smaller. The smaller the box, the less area there is to defend. The middle lane of the floor is known as "the Shoot." It is extremely important that the defense keeps the ball out of this area of the floor. Once the offense gets it in the middle, all players are one pass away. Another major part of this defensive philosophy is creating pressure by playing on the line of the ball. Huggins teaches his players to make passes go "over or under" you but never through you. Defending the dribble and playing one pass away are necessary fundamentals in this system. The 2-on-2 Sprint to Help Drill incorporates many of the important teaching points, including high hands, spacing and angles and the closeout. The drills and teaching points in this DVD are the foundation of Coach Huggins defensive system. Dominating the box will help your team force turnovers and eliminate direct passes and easy shots. By employing this system pressure becomes your ally and a threat to any opponent on your schedule.

88 minutes. 2006.
