    Bo Ryan’s Defensive System for Success

    Hall of Fame coach Bo Ryan shares his secrets for a defense that is synonymous with his name. The former Wisconsin head coach won seven Big Ten titles (three conference tournament and four regular season) in his career and took the Badgers to back-to-back Final Four appearances in 2014 and ’15. His lifetime winning percentage of .762 and his nearly 800 career victories are a testament to the pressure defense that Ryan’s teams played.

    If you are looking to turn up the heat and pressure of your defense, Ryan will show you how in this video. You will hear some of his general principles of defense as well as his overall philosophy. Coach Ryan shares a number of drills and strategies and also discusses his suffocating Diamond press.

    Defensive Drills

    Coach Ryan shares 12 practice drills that give your players the tools they need to become better individual defenders. The drills help establish the foundation for your team defense. Coach Ryan begins with a progression of drills that train on-ball defense. It begins with the stance, lateral movement, reaction time, and more. You will see the Two Deads and a Charge Drill which teaches players how to direct a dribbler up the floor, how to apply pressure in a dead ball situation, and how to take a charge.

    Other drills work on such defensive basics as close outs, denial defense, and beating screens. Ryan demonstrates three competitive drills that teach players to protect the rim with great help defense and communication. The 4-o-4 Post Drill adds a player at the high post. Defenders must react to contain the drive.

    Post Defense

    One of Bo Ryan’s Defensive System principles is to never allow a talented big man touch the ball in the post. You will see how Ryan coaches post denial without getting exposed to seals. Players learn to fight for position to front the post and keep the offense guessing with a strategy that denies the pass into the high post.


    Another of Ryan’s key principles is defensive rebounding. Nothing frustrates great defenses like giving up offensive rebounds. Coach Ryan shares some insight on individual rebounding success. He also offers an awesome drill that will help your players improve their rebounding abilities.

    Defensive Tactics

    Opponents will try all sorts of screening actions against a man-to-man defense. Coach Ryan discusses how his teams deal with seven types of screens. You will also see two different ways to deal with double screens. The whole idea for Ryan is to force opponents into lowest percentage plays.
