(Rental)-Read & Man To Man Full Court Press
Read Full Court Press and Man-to-Man Presses
The one thing that can disrupt even the best of basketball offenses is the full court press. Eric Flannery, long-time head coach at St. Edwards HS (OH), shows you two pressing defenses designed to control pace and, ultimately, the tempo of a game. Flannery has over 400 career wins and two Ohio Division 1 state championships. His success can be attributed to his read and man-to-man full court presses.
Read Full Court Press
The Read press really creates confusion for opponents. Initially, the defense is all about getting deflections. The defense strives to not allow the same entry twice. When the ball reverses, the press changes its look and becomes a 2-2-1. This drives opponents crazy as they try to decipher the press. Coach Flannery shows you how the defense can throw multiple options at an offense after the initial read.
You will learn the rules of the Read press as well as the positioning for each player. The great thing about the Read press is that it allows for flexibility in press rotations. You can fit the press to your personnel to benefit the strengths of your team.
Coach Flannery has a different idea about trapping the first pass. Most often, you see the trap come at an angle from the inbound pass. Flannery likes his players to go up the floor and come from the side. This cuts off the dribble to the middle of the floor. This L-cut is a great adjustment to prevent the ball from going to the middle of the floor.
The man-to-man press looks like a zone press. Flannery teaches you the rotations that make the press appear to be zone when in reality it is man. Coach Flannery guides you through the initial setup that an offense would likely use to break the press.
Read Full Court Press Breakdown Drills
To teach his style of disrupting defense, Flannery shows you a progression of breakdown drills. Each one builds a havoc mindset by focusing on forcing players to the sideline and containing an opponent’s best ball handlers.
The Sprint and Turn Drill teaches players to turn and run taking an angle to cut off an offensive player. The drill works to help players focus on their defense rather than chasing the basketball. The drill eventually goes to 2-on-2 forcing defenders to communicate as they cut off the ball and force a trap.
If you like to get up and down the floor, Coach Flannery’s pressure defenses are for you. They create confusion and force opponents to get out of their comfort zone. Your team is sure to love this style of play that gets everyone involved. Rent the Read Full Court Press DVD today.
