Aggressive half court defense is an critical aspect of a successful program. Using on court demonstration, Jay Spoonhour takes you through individual and group drills to teach the fundamentals of man-to-man defense.

Individual Defense
Coach Spoonhour's first set of drills focus on cutting off drives and denying passes to the wing. You'll see how to develop your players' ability to:

  • Create ball pressure and take away vision
  • Deny passes
  • Maximize foot quickness
  • Stop the dribble using the slide-run-slide technique
Group Defense
Teach your players how individual defense is incorporated into the team concept. Using on court demonstrations, the shell drill is used to show the proper movement of players on passes. Drills focus on keeping both eyes on the ball and quickness in getting to proper positions.

The group drills focus on denying the wing pass and cutting off the baseline. Spoonhour focuses on help defense, not giving up easy layups and forcing jump shots.

In addition to these group drills, Spoonhour demonstrates proper footwork on the wing. The need to have proper footwork technique is vital for having a solid team defensively.

Using these drills, your team will develop the skills necessary to succeed on the defensive end of the floor. This video is great for beginning coaches and for coaches who need a refresher course on half court defense.

Produced at the Fall 2010 St. Louis (MO) clinic.

Solid information on pressure defense. Sprint to help, correct footwork when in deny, great tips on in your grill on-ball defense. Good information for individual players looking to improve their defensive footwork and IQ. Emphasizes the little things that most overlook or take for granted.

Good DVD I like the different drills and the different take to the same old "up the line" defensive philosophy. He makes good points that make you think of defense in a different way and goes through some good drills to reinforce good habits.
