    How to Stop the Fast Break in Basketball

    Former Butler University and current Ohio State University basketball coach Chris Holtmann shares a systematic approach for limiting opponents’ transition points in this video. Transition defense has become an important part of many teams’ defensive strategies and Coach Holtmann offers his philosophy as well as practice drills to implement his system.

    Coach Holtmann learned from one of the best, current Boston Celtics head coach Brad Stevens, while at Butler. Holtmann won the Big East Coach of the Year award in 2017 at Butler and then won the Big Ten Coach of the Year award in 2018 after leading Ohio State to the NCAA tournament.

    Using a series of practice drills, Coach Holtmann shows you his strategies for getting back on defense. He emphasizes his points with on-court demonstrations that show you exactly how Holtmann’s defenses at Butler consistently landed at the top of the national defensive efficiency rankings.

    The Culture of Transition Defense

    In teaching transition defense, Coach Holtmann begins with getting players to buy into the culture. Offense is a huge part of transition defense. Offensive rebounding is a key to playing transition. In playing defense in transition, Coach Holtmann stresses the idea that players must run to the paint rather than run to your matchup when getting back on defense.


    How to Stop the Fast Break in Basketball with Drills

    Coach Holtmann uses several drills to actually install and teach transition defense. The transition drills begin on the offensive end as the shooter starts to lift the shot. As that happens, players begin to move to defend in transition.

    In Circle Transition and 5-on-4 + 1, players outlet a ball to a coach as defenders sprint back and sort everything from the rim out. This is one of Coach Holtmann’s key concepts. Guards learn to rotate and all defenders learn to communicate.

    Coach Holtmann has built a transition defensive system through years of experience. It is easy to learn and install. This 55-minute video is exactly what you need if you are looking to stop teams from scoring easy baskets in transition. Rent this how to stop the fast break in basketball DVD today.
