Open Practice: 2-2-1 Press and Defensive Breakdown Drills
The 2-2-1 press is one that can pressure an offense into turnovers, slow down the tempo of a game, and steal possessions from an opponent. In this open practice video, Oakland University head coach Greg Kampe gives you insight into how he runs the 2-2-1 press. You will see whiteboard diagrams, on-court demonstration, and live practice drills to give you a complete look at the 2-2-1 press.
The Basics of the 2-2-1 Press
Coach Kampe, the third-longest tenured head coach in Division I basketball, starts with a lecture on his philosophy of the 2-2-1 press. He diagrams the more common scenarios you might encounter as well as the common rotations based on what an offense does. Coach Kampe identifies the areas that he calls good, great, and bad trap areas. He also teaches strategies to keep the ball out of the middle, force dribblers into the “trap box,” and how to cover shooters in the back line.
To develop the press, Kampe uses 5-on-5 controlled scrimmages. These help players learn to make reads in different situations. Coach Kampe emphasizes when players should gamble to try and intercept a pass or play more conservative.
Breakdown Drills for the 2-2-1 Press
Coach Kampe shares three practice drills that can be used to develop any half-court defense. Perimeter players use a 3-on-1 drill to teach closeouts, how to be in the right spot in help defense, and how to slow down dribble penetration. The Knight Rebounding drill teaches players to make contact and find the ball in a competitive 2-on-2 setting. Coach Kampe also teaches the fundamentals for great post defense in a third drill.
This video is a comprehensive look at how to disrupt offenses using the 2-2-1 press from a coach who has over 500 career victories. Coach Kampe has used the 2-2-1 press to help make Oakland a well-known mid-major program.
