Tim Jankovich: Defensive Concepts vs. Man and Zone Offenses
There is no question that teams that play great defense win championships. Tim Jankovich, head coach at SMU and former Bill Self assistant, shares his defensive philosophy which includes eight components to form a sound system. Jankovich has plenty of experience having posted the most victories by a first-year head coach at Illinois State (25) and then winning American Athletic Conference Coach of the Year honors in 2017 when he led SMU to the conference regular season and tournament championships.
In this video, Coach Jankovich shares a ton of information you can use to develop an outstanding man-to-man defense. He will discuss 1-on-1 defense, defensive positioning, and how to defend things like off-ball cuts, drives, and screening actions.
Winning in Transition
The team that wins in transition normally wins the battle on the scoreboard. Coach Jankovich shares the mentality your team must take to become a sound transition defense. He discusses why he spends so much time in transition and he breaks down how to speed this conversion up. With offensive pace as high as its ever been, teams that are strong defensively can slow down opponents.
Coach Jankovich begins here by breaking down individual and team on- and off-ball defense. It all starts with the basic footwork and positioning. From there, he gets into closing out speedy and shifty players. Then, Coach Jankovich takes it to the team level by demonstrating his version of the Shell Drill, something that can be done daily.
Jankovich continues building upon his previous concepts and breaks down defending cuts and drives. You will see that he emphasizes a flat triangle, jumping to the ball, and being able to draw the line between you and your man. You will learn cues of basic help positioning, trapping and recovering on baseline drives, defending dribble penetration, and how to help off defenders.
Because screens are a big part of most every offense today, Coach Jankovich spends time teaching coverages for some of the more difficult screening actions like wide pin downs, stagger screens, and the pick and pop action.
If your defense is not where you want it to be or you are taking over a program and starting from scratch, Coach Jankovich demonstrates concepts and drills that serve a purpose in building the foundation of a successful defense at any level.
