Basketball Play - Basic Defensive Drills: Stance Focus

Basic Defensive Drills: Stance Focus

Lee DeForest 12/14/2015

1. Coach will yell "Stance" - players will slap the floor and yell "Stance" down in a defensive stance 2. Coach will say "Move" and the players will begin to chop their feet 3. Coach will point to the left or right and players will react quickly to coach changing directions Why this matters: A defensive stance is the single most important defensive fundamental a player will learn. Teaching players to react to the verbal call of "stance" will also help in a game when a team needs a defensive stop. 1. Coach will yell "Stance" - players will slap the floor and yell "Stance" down in a defensive stance 2. Coach will say "Move" and the players will begin to chop their feet 3. Coach will yell "Go" and players will slide to the opposite lane line and back across as many times as possible in thirty seconds or twenty seconds. Emphasize - movement of the feet and the first step in a direction with the outside foot. 1. Coach will partner up players. 2. 1 player will dribble to the lane line, the other player will be in a stance and move his feet. 3. Go to half court. 4. Players will switch roles at half court and go the other way. 5. The next group goes when the first group gets to half court. Emphasis: Teach the defense to move quickly with the offense. Try to keep their head on the ball. Go half speed until the players learn the drill. The offense should try to keep their head up while dribbling. 1. Offense is ahead of the defense. 2. Slower players need more space. 3. The player with the ball dribbles to the rim to make a lay-up. 4. The defensive player, without fouling, tries to run to a spot in front of the defense. No shot blocking. 5. Move less skilled players closer to basket. Emphasis - try to stop the ball without fouling by forcing the offense to change directions on the fast break. The offense works on staying in control to make the lay-up. See More

If 3 or 4 are covering the low post or baseline runner on drop to the basket as far as necessary. 4. 5 denys any high post pass.

Guards: On a pass to corner from the wing all players must shift hard. 1. 1 drops to cover the weakside lane. 2. 2 covers the high post. Players read the shoulders to try and determine and prepair for the next pass. 3. On a pass back to the wing 2 would slow the ball and 1 would recover to the high post. Forwards: 1. The position themselves with their backs to the corner splitting the players of the wing and post. 2. 3 & 4 must steal lob passes from the top. 3. The deeper the ball is on the floor by the point guard the deeper the forwards must be to the low post. Forwards: 1. On a pass to the wing the strongside forward positions himself in line within the passing lane to the corner. 2. The weakside forward moves to the baseline to take any lobs to the low post. 3.

Play of the Day 09-07-2011: Defensive 5-Second Call

FastModel Sports 09/07/2011

Today's FastDraw Play of the Day takes you to Eurobasket 2011 in Lithuania, for a look at the defensive side of the ball. In Second Round action today, France needed a defensive stop against Turkey to seal the victory. Turkey had the ball out of bounds, down 3 points, with 5 seconds to play in the game, but failed to inbound the ball within the 5-second time limit to do so, and France hung on to win the game. Every coach at one time or another is in a position where their team needs to force a 5-second call to have a chance to win the game. Usually, it occurs when trailing, and rarely does the team pull it off under pressure. In this case France used it to clinch victory in a game they were leading. The video below show you exactly how this play described above unfolded and allowed France to walk away with a Eurobasket victory: See More
