Bruce Pearl is widely known for his fast tempo and full court pressure. Coach Pearl believes that a breaking offense can create tempo, but the full court attack on defense can control tempo. This "encyclopedia" of Pearl's full court style is presented by taking parts of Pearl's previously released videos from Pearl's days at Southern Indiana (D-II National Champs in '95), and the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, (NCAA Sweet 16 in '05), and is divided into three parts: a lecture session where he breaks down the defense; on the court, where the defense is shown in a teaching setting; and through extensive highlight footage, where you can see his Tennessee teams using this defense in game action. The "Building the defense" segment is a step-by-step tutorial on how to choose each player for the pressing system. The advantages of Pearl's defense are numerous and include: it makes teams change their normal style and forces them to prepare especially for you, it can help you score in bunches and break a game wide open and it wears down the opponent physically and mentally. This full court pressure defensive system will present a way for you to control the tempo of games instead of reacting to it.
126 minutes. 2007.
Coach definitely does repeat himself throughout the video because this DVD was shot at multiple clinics. The best part of the DVD for me was Coach Pearl's detailed explanation about how his teams match up on the back end of the press. It's challenging at times to go man-to-man off of a zone press. This will make sure you do not lose good shooters in transition while protecting the paint. He was very specific and had great teaching points. Also, I liked his nuggets about getting into the press off of a made basket, made FT, etc.
Zero complaints about this one. This video is a must have for any who wants to learn the four basic ways to full court press. I thought the price was high when I bought it but after watching it I would have paid more. Coach Pearl shows you his list of rules to follow, the lecture was informative, the on court demonstration was excellent, and he explains a chart that he uses for the first two passes in his press. I purchased this video and the Shaka Smart: Havoc and both compliment each other well, but this one goes a bit deeper into the information.
If you are looking for an all out, corner trapping press, this is a very solid video. Pearl actually does well in a lecture going thru responsibilities and then puts in out on the court. Tom Davis had a full court pressure DVD he put out when at IOWA which was pretty similar. Of course Pearl is a Tom Davis guy. Well worth it if you want to have a press to go for broke!
The lecture and the on-court demonstration are good.
Was disappointed with the amount of repitition. You'll hear 3 times Pearl's 8-10 reasons to press.
The Tennessee video footage is more highlight film than teaching video. There is no naration with that.
This video is about 2 hours long with about 1 hr 15 minutes worthy of watching.
Pearl gives coaches the opportunity to understand his philosophy of the up-tempo game. There is some repetition from the lectures, but the video stresses his key points. His ideas are illustrated with chalkboard lectures, video, electronic x and o's, and live on court situations. Good audio and quality picture. The video is broken down into sections that you can refer to in order to review key points or to show players. I've watched it, used it, and highly recommend it.
I agree. The first hour consists of a lecture where coach goes over his philosophies each man's responsibilities in the press. The second hour is an on court demonstration that is in depth. Highly recommended for anyone interested in learning about the 1-2-1-1.
Very deep coverage of 1-2-1-1 press.It contains clear description of different situations with game clips, and on the court demonstrations.It covers many counteractions again common offensive tactics (2 front, 3 front, 4 front).I'm happy I purchased it.
