Dangerous defenders know they don’t have to practice a hundred different things…that’s just too complicated. Join PGC Director Tyler Coston and discover four simple concepts that will make you a better defender today:
1. Help-Defense is a Decision, Not a Position
The best defenders can easily answer these questions:
2. Paint The Floor
Most defensive players stay in a 6-foot box. Imagine your feet are painted and you need to cover the entire floor with footprints. Cover more ground and be more active.
3. Help Across, Not Up
Anytime you ‘help up’ toward the basketball, you lose sight of the person you’re guarding. Stay perpendicular to your opponent, keep them in your line-of-sight, and help across (not up). This will lead to more contested passes and shorter rebound recovery.
4. Take Away Their Favorite Shots and Moves
Every player has something they’re best at, so make them do something else! If they’re a shooter, make them a driver. If they’re a driver, make them a shooter. Make the game difficult.
