Transcript of 1-3-1 HALF COURT DEFENSE

PGC / GLAZIER

1-3-1 HALF COURT DEFENSE
“Bluff / Bloom"

WHEN TO USE IT
Full game (must be ready for low scoring game)

End of quarters / half, out of timeouts

To extend your run / stop their run

Up 6+ with less than 5 minutes to play

6–10 possessions in a row

2nd half of season, region tourney, playoffs

BASIC COVERAGE AREAS
WHY IT WORKS AT THE HS LEVEL
Coaching (2-1-2? Screen it?)

Kills offensive movement

Difficult to screen

Forces low percentage shots

Lack of 2nd & 3rd offensive scorer / shooter

Lack of size at the guard spots

Lack of dominate posts

Offensive players ALWAYS catch the ball under duress

FUNDAMENTAL RULES
No traps!

Think in “angles”, play passing lanes (not ball)

Active hands, "HIGH HANDS"

Ball must go around and above (not through)

Shots must be taken beyond NBA 3 or over an extended hand

High post rebounding area is KEY (Hit and Get)

EVERY POSITION IS THE MOST IMPORTANT

OVERVIEW
Non-Trapping, passing lane defense

Designed to control tempo / manage game

Keeps offense uncomfortable

WILL WIN GAMES

#1 goal is to make offense pick up dribble or get out range/comfort zone

Bluff at “ball” and then “bloom” on retreat dribble or when offense picks up the ball

Use the term “BLOOM” because of flower visual

TOP PLAYER KEEPS BUTT TO SIDELINE

WINGS KEEP BUTT TO THE BASELINE

BLUFF / BLOOM
1 MAN - TOP OF ZONE
Length helps, but not a necessity

Must be able to read offensive guy's eyes

Must have lateral movement / coordination

Must keep ball on one side of the court / keep it busy

Funnels ball-handler to middle man

REBOUNDS (go get it)

2 / 3 MAN - WINGS
Length is key

Lateral Movement

Closeouts are key

Must keep butt to baseline at all times

No wing to corner or corner to wing direct pass

Rebounder on offensive left side

Either your toughest guy or strongest

Has short-corner extended responsibilities

Must be physical and rebound

IQ


4 MAN - BASELINE
HOW DO WE PRACTICE / TEACH IT
Film (show good / bad clips from previous years)

Explain responsibilities on floor

Live vs JV

Each coach watches specific area/position (very difficult to teach whole group)

Individual break-downs (bluff/bloom, lateral movement, rebounds, 4/5 Man toughness)

Use in “garbage time”, holiday tournaments, etc.

5 MAN - MIDDLE
Use the lane lines as guide (railroad)

Mirror the ball at ALL times (BALL – YOU – BASKET)

Active hands

Must be tough (can’t relax and play behind)

Look for charges

If offensive post is above FT line know your scouting report

GO GET IT

FINAL THOUGHTS
Experiment (Season to season, game to game)

Small man in middle, length on wings, big at top

Preach success / confidence

Press into 1-3-1

Will be used more and more at the NCAA level

THE WRONG WAY
Direct passes around perimeter or through middle

Low / inactive hands

Let shooters stay in range

Lazy play in middle

Butts turned the wrong way

Playing a "zone" attitude
