Disrupt the flow of your opponent's offense, change the tempo of any game and force both turnovers and time-outs with these press defense strategies!
One of the nation's most successful high school basketball coaches, Don Showalter, offers up a tutorial in tactics like full-court trapping, adjusting the press to match players' talents and confusing the offense by matching their press break moves.
Acknowledging the ever-changing skill levels inherent in high school athletics, Showalter has created a simple press defense that can be used effectively and successfully by players of all skills levels. His philosophy is based on constant ball pressure, patience and rebounding.
Using simple adjustments, Coach Showalter shows how to manage different press break attacks. While most press breakers attack the Diamond Press at the middle, for example, he covers how this press flows seamlessly into a 2-2-1 zone. He shares five drills to reinforce the effort and control it takes to play this defense.
To counter the press, Coach Showalter shares two different press breakers. The first strategy puts your strongest shooter in three-point range while the second, more traditional method uses the conventional 4-across scheme to break your opponent's trap.
Confuse your opponents by creating havoc in their offense with Showalter's innovative approach to full-court trapping. This very press is what helped the U17 USA Men's Basketball Team capture the 2010 FIBA World Championship.

Great info about pressure defense. I especially liked how he can morph his Diamond press into a 2-2-1 press. The press presentation is organized and well taught. The best part of the tape are his drills. Great leadup drills for the press! I have quite a few press tapes, and this is one of my favorites!
This is a very good DVD for any coach at any level. Zone into a man to man which I like for any Middle or High School coach. This zone is an easy set-up & to teach. If your looking for a good break down to teach Zone pressing, this is a value you can't miss.
I like the way the press is set up and the adjustments that can be made to cause problems for the team trying to break the press. I like the fact that you fall back into a man to man defense which will further cause more problems for the team trying to break the press. I wish the pdf files were in larger print so that they would be easier to read. More time and detail spent on the press break would have been appreciated but this DVD is still a good buy for a coach who wants to install an effective press.
