Transcript of Tempo strategy

PGC / GLAZIER

PRESSING APPROACH TO INCREASE PACE OF GAME

KEY COMPONENTS

1) Full Court Defense
a) GOLD - Man to Man (Run & Jump)
b) RED - 2-2-1

2) 1-3-1 SOB

3) Freethrow Break

WHY WE DO IT

Pressing / playing for TEMPO

Not necessarily turnovers

Add 10-15 possessions to the game

Allows you to play kids that might not be great "basketball players"

Make opposing team uncomfortable / abandon strategy
a) Conditioning
b) Haven't practiced at the pace
c) Puts ball in hands of bad players
d)
"Oh S**t Moment"
GOLD
RUN AND JUMP
(simple)

Three keys: EFFORT, INTENSITY, TEAMWORK

The defense is more about angles than passing lanes

TRAP WHEN THE BALL CAN’T SEE YOU

On made basket, dead ball or inbound - IMMEDIATELY face guard CLOSEST man (including inbounder)

Player guarding the inbounder ALWAYS traps the first pass if it is below the mid-point of lane line

Defend the ball, not a man


ON THE BALL IN PRESS

Do not have a fear of getting beat

On the catch, jam ball and make offensive player dribble. Do not allow them to see the floor clearly

Try and turn the offensive player at least once (twice is excellent)

On sideline dribble, take proper angle and sprint ahead to turn the ball. Trap will come from middle

Force the obvious pass by making the offense player pivot


OFF THE BALL IN PRESS

Rotations are EVERYTHING (protect the basket first)

Do not run UP on the ball, do not allow penetrating passes

Start to jump/shoot the gap on the offensive PIVOT. Not on the pass

The back player has to be as deep as the deepest offensive player

When center (or non-ball handler) has ball, everyone yells “STICK”. Force that player to handle ball
WHEN TRAPPING

Be elastic, you move as the offensive player moves

Make sure you don’t “break the glass”

Keep arms high to make them pass over you and to get deflections

Foul with lower body, never with hands

When offense passes out of a trap, the two trapping defenders BOTH sprint middle to “
see and fix

HOW WE PRACTICE IT

1) Extended scrimmages (10, 15, 30 min)
a) Even teams (competition over chemistry)
b) Crank the music
c) Trap everything
d) No whistles (hockey subs)
e) Get Past Tired

2) Various trapping games / drills
a) Always incorporate score into immediate inbound trap
b) 3 on 2, 4 on 3 games
c) 11 Man drill (with inbound traps)
d) Cut-throat concept
e) 2 on 2, 3 on 3 - "See and Fix"


LET'S PLAY FASTER!

RED
2-2-1

Similar to Vance Walburg 2-2-1

Top two players use
Run and Jump
principles, tap out when ball gets behind them

2nd line players contain, slow up ball-handler and protect middle of the floor

Back man plays sideline passes

Athletes up top, Length 2nd, Little (CB in back)


"13"
SIDELINE 1-3-1

1-3-1 alignment, wing is on the ball

Trap the inbound pass, wherever it is on floor (closest two guys)

If not involved in the trap, rotate "Home"

Man on ball has to bring energy and influence pass away from rim

Another way to speed teams up, never give them a break

Another thing the opposing coach has to "prepare for"
HOW WE PRACTICE IT

1) Similar to GOLD (Run and Jump)

2) Scrimmage teams play different presses

3) "Circle the Wagons"

4) More individual breakdowns (top and back)
FREE THROW BREAK

Great time to "generate" some possessions is off opponent's FT

20+ Freethrows per game? So approximately 10 opportunities to run a FT break

2 offensive players back is safer than you think!

Another thing for the opponets to prepare for
FINAL THOUGHTS

Always easier in the beginning of the season

PRACTICE FAST EARLY

Playing faster is a total SYSTEM commitment
a) positionless development
b) conditioning
c) thinking outside the box
d) open post motion
e) pace and space
d) quick hitter sets (2 pass max)

Study small college ball

GO WATCH PRACTICES

Championships are still won in the half-court
