Description

with Shaka Smart, Virginia Commonwealth University Head Coach;
2011 Clarence Gaines National Coach of the Year. 2011 Final Four appearance. Four 27-win seasons (2009-2013).

Pressure defense is a critical component of Coach Smart's Havoc style of play. More than just occasionally running a press, Havoc begins with a mindset, a philosophy and values.

With Coach Smart's defensive system, you can trap your opponents anywhere on the court and force them to play at an up-tempo pace. In this instructional video, Coach Smart breaks down the two full-court presses that allowed his team to lead the nation in steals and turnover margin in the 2011-12 and 2012-13 seasons. He also shares the five core values that go hand-in-hand with Havoc and have made his teams successful.

On the court, Smart demonstrates the simple yet vital concept of how to trap. Learn how to close out correctly to the ball handler, force an obvious pass, and be "elastic" in the trap. He also provides off-the-ball directions. Smart stresses proper distance between your man and the ball, shares insights into the value of proper foot and hand fakes, and gets energized by players' willingness to get back-tips while running the press.

Smart walks players through their responsibilities for the "Double Fist" Man-to-Man Press. These examples are clear and concise and show each step, so any coach can put in this pressure defense.

Smart also teaches his version of the Diamond Press. This 1-2-1-1 attack creates great opportunities to force your opponents into bad spots. Traps come quick and easy; offenses are forced to pass to players they don't want handling the ball.

This season, wreak havoc on your opponents. Install one of the great pressure-defensive systems in basketball today-the same system that took Shaka Smart to the Final Four. Order now!

Very good presentation - would have liked to gotten a little more on his diamond press but his teaching points for his man-to-man pressure are excellent.

Coach Smart is very inspiring and definitely knows his stuff. I just wish the DVD went into a little more detail. There is an overview of the presses, but not much in the way of drills and how to implement the defense from the ground up.

I have been coaching for 40 plus years and have used the same press with a number system . Shaka has done a great job breaking little nuances on reading the dribbler. This helps the read on making the jump or trap easer. Very good explanation on the press and he answers the question why you press. We also won our State Championship using the press.

I really liked this video. It really helped me to understand how to teach how to press and things you want to force the opponent into. I will be using a a lot of what Shaka Smart said in my practices. I wish it was a little longer also or was his own team to really show his press.

I watched VCU play a couple times and assumed they had a very intricate, however this DVD changed that rather quickly. Coach Smart is nothing short of brilliant and this video showcases not only his coaching ability but also his teaching ability. I would recommend purchasing this video in a heartbeat

I definitely recommend this video for any coach who is interested in developing a team that can play good pressure defense. Coach Smart does a great job of laying out all of the key elements to a good man to man press. The segment about the 1-2-1-1 Press is also very good. It's a little brief, but he still shows you enough so that if you have the athletes for it you'll be able to use it. An all-access would be a great compliment to this dvd though.

Good Explanation of concepts and movement through the presses. Would like to see a follow up presentation with some drill work to break down certain situations.

Very good DVD. I would have like to have seen the guys at the other end of the court. Other than that it was very informative.

Nice DVD. Very simple philosophies, nothing complex. Very easy to understand and he explains "why" they do what they do.

This video was outstanding. Shaka does an excellent job explaining how, why, and where actions take place on the court. His Q&A portion is solid. Another video that parallel's this one is the Bruce Pearl Encyclopedia of Full Court Pressure. Both of these are a must have in your coaching library!!!

This is the best video I've seen on the man-to-man press. You get a few drills to build the pressure but they are nothing special. What I really liked were his rules on when to trap and he also went into explaining "Fix-It" situations - how to transition back when the defense is beat. He went into a lot more detail on the man-to-man press than in anything else on the video. He does go into the diamond press but I would definitely recommend the Encyclopedia of Fullcourt Pressure instead. It just seemed to skip many details that I think are important. Things I liked about his diamond press coverage were how to trap when the ball is passed to the weakside corner, getting a second trap on reversals, and also how to trap when you are beat on a pass to the middle by a flashing big.

Coach Smart does a good job going through the responsibilities and roles of the players in the two presses he presents. But, would've been good to see some of the breakdown drills he does instead of him just giving a quick anecdote about it. Seeing an "All Access" from VCU would be something for the future where we could all benefit from Coach Smart's enthusiasm and knowledge on the court.

I've used this press for over 10 years and I learned little things and better phrases and clearer ways of showing kids the press.It was worth the money and will help you if you're a press coach.

This video is great. The way Coach Smart presents the information is clean and concise. If you don't know a thing about a pressing defense, you will, and your team will be able to run a shut down press if you follow Coach Smarts instruction.

I coach a team that uses a Run and Jump Man to Man full court defense, so I was excited to see what sort of tips and tidbits I could find in a Shaka Smart video on Havoc. And I must admit I was slightly disappointed. His talk was very vague, and general. I preferred the UT-Arlington All Access Pass as a full court pressure training aid.

Thank You. I've been waiting for anything from Shaka Smart on this subject, and probably would have paid any price. I'm in the Pacific Northwest, and we don't get too many high profile, non-regional, national names at our clinics with regularity. It's shorter than I would have liked(just one clinic hour), but I understand there was a huge market for anything with Coach Smart's name on it. It was like a taste of Havoc, an appetizer. Now, I'll be waiting for an All-Access, or Encyclopedia of Havoc, or anything else we can get from Coach Smart with a more in-depth look at breakdown drills building up to 5 on 5. You can put me on the preorder list!
