Rene Portland gives a detailed demonstration of the renowned "Mosquito Defense" that legendary Marquette Coach Al McGuire used to win the 1977 NCAA National Championship. In this DVD, Portland teaches this innovative, four-part pressure defensive system giving detailed explanations of the different positions and their roles. The Penn State Lady Lions work on at least one of these press systems everyday, and Portland has been able to successfully modify the system to meet the needs of her team. This video will help you strive to protect the baseline, control the tempo of the game, vary the length of the pressure and move people around. In addition to teaching the Mosquito Defenses, Portland also instills a few of her own unique drills designed to build communication skills, be attentive, and protect the paint. It is a must have for anyone who remembers the profound achievements of Al McGuire and who wants to model their own defensive systems after his. Rene Portland does a phenomenal job of making the Mosquito System understandable, and with this DVD you can include this dominating defensive system in your own basketball playbook. Coaches, please note: the name of one drill (necessary to get a full understanding of the positions on the court and the formation of the defense) may offend, and may not be appropriate to play in front of your team.
