Description

with Geno Auriemma, 2013 NCAA Championship Coach;
8x NCAA Women's Basketball National Championship Coach; back-to-back undefeated national championship seasons (2009 and 2010); 8x National Coach of the year; distinguished member of the Naismith Hall of Fame (2006); over 30 Big East regular season and tournament titles

Good defense is based on knowing what the opponent does well and taking it away. In order to accomplish this, Coach Auriemma demonstrates his four cornerstones of half court defense. These four areas of emphasis are defending the baseline drive, guarding and trapping the post, closing out on the shooter and defending the pick and roll. Ball pressure on the point guard and wing denial are two keys in the half court. The three-point line is a guide for defenders to push the offense beyond the line. Doubling the post on the pass is required against good offensive players. Auriemma teaches his defenders to react to the pass and trap the post aggressively. A basic 2-on-2 drill is demonstrated to show the importance proper close outs on the ball. Several different looks are demonstrated regarding the pick and roll. It is important to design a defensive plan based on the ability of your players and your opponent. Auriemma's overriding idea is to make good players take tough shots!

75 minutes. 2007.
