(Rental)-Pack Line Defense For Undersized Teams
Pack Line Defense for Undersized Teams
The Pack Line defense has moved into the forefront of basketball with Virginia winning the 2019 college national championship. Todd Lorenson, head coach at Southwestern (IA) Community College, used a modified version of the Pack Line to take his team to the 2017 NJCAA DII national championship. In this video, Lorenson shows you how he builds his version of the Pack Line defense from the ground up. You will see the progression he uses for the first 10 to 15 practices of the season in the installation of the defense.
Building the Pack Line Defense
Coach Lorenson shows you eight drills that teach the basics of the Pack Line defense. The drills include such defensive fundamentals as closeouts, defending shooters, and stopping dribble penetration. These can be applied to any defense. Lorenson’s drills include:
- 2-on-2 Exchange: Focuses on the dynamics of repositioning and the movement patterns to reinforce defenders playing in a position of advantage.
- 4-on-4 Shell Drill: Helps players define their positions by where the ball is entered, the importance of vacating the gap quickly, and how to close out on potential shooters.
- Ball Screen 3-on-3: Players learn to “come together” on screens to avoid any slippage or gaps for the offense. Coach Lorenson also explains problems with a player’s defensive position relative to gaps using terms such as “stretching” and “too low.”
Defending the Post
To slow down the effectiveness of a dominant post player, Coach Lorenson teaches full fronting. You will see how defenders use exaggerated arm and leg movements to use when fronting the post. Weakside players learn to “wall-up” post players on lob passes. Coach Lorenson shares two drills you can use to teach these concepts.
Coach Lorenson’s clinic video goes in-depth on the Pack Line defense. The drills and concepts are easy to understand, which will help your players buy into the Pack Line defensive philosophy. Rent this Pack Line Defense DVD today.
