Thoughts on defending in a 2v1 disadvantage
Stunt & Retreat
"Buy time" - every extra pass or dribble the offense is forced to make provides an opportunity for one additional defensive player to get back in the play.
Contain the dribbler; stunt & retreat, do not reach or attempt to steal the ball.
Play The Pass
Often the dribbler will pass the ball before forcing the defense to commit.
They pass rather than drive/shoot in a 2v1. Stunt to elicit the pass then play the pass.
Take A Charge
Often the dribbler will continue their momentum on their path to the basket after making a pass.
2v1 w/ Help
Buy time until help (The Wolf) is in the passing lane before committing to the ball
