Defensive drill encompassing wing denial, spriting to help, closing out and more. #PressureManTips
Read more on the FMS blog: Defensive Denial Drills
Drill begins with a passer at top of circle with the ball and offensive players (1&2) on the wings
X1 and X2 are in deny stance with butt to the ball, chin on their shoulder, hand and foot in the passing lane, palm away and thumb down
1 and 2 v-cut to get open - as cutter gets closer to the rim defender moves closer to cutter, as cutter gets further from the rim defender moves closer to the ball.
Deny out and make cutter receive the pass going away from the basket with back to the rim
Pass it made to 1
X1 in on-the-ball stance has high foot up not allowing the middle drive.
X2 moves to midline, but NOT in an open "pistols" stance. Stay in deny stance with chin on shoulder
X1 influeces man to the baseline checkpoint (dot in diagram)
1 may pass back to Passer or skip pass to 2 (shown)
X2 executes a close out on 2 and forces to the baseline checkpoint (dot in diagram). Cannot give up a three point shot!
X1 sprints to help on the flight of the pass
2 can skip pass to 1 or pass to passer (shown)
X1 gets out quickly to deny quick reversal
When passer has the ball both defenders are denying their man and offensive players are v-cutting to uncover
Passer dribbles as if penetrating
X1 DOES NOT open up and lose sight of his man to seal the drive! Instead he stays in deny stance and "plugs the drive with his butt."
Teaching tip: Plug with your butt!
1 attacks the baseline
X2 (lowest guard) helps seal the baseline drive at the checkpoint
1 passes out to Passer or 2 and players recover accordingly
Finish the drill with Passer taking a shot. 1 and 2 crash and defenders must block out
