    Tad Boyle: Game-Like Defensive Practice Drills

    Looking to slow down your opponent’s best player? Colorado head basketball coach Tad Boyle gives an on-court presentation detailing the use of traps to do so. You will also learn a number of methods for defending ball screens from different locations on the floor. Coach Boyle takes you through the drills that helped him become the first coach in Colorado history to lead the program to four straight 20-plus win seasons and four straight postseason tournament berths.

    Defensive Basics

    One of the cores of Coach Boyle’s philosophy is the scoring of drills. The Bubble Drill is one of the greatest in Boyles’ repertoire. A team begins the drill with a lead in a late-game situation. The winning team must remain patient on offense and produce stops on the defensive end. The keys to stopping an opponent at any time include communication, relentless effort, and a true belief in a defense’s ability to get it done. Coach awards points for defensive stops in an effort to get players to buy in to the value of a defensive stop, especially those in crucial game situations.

    Transition Defense

    One area of emphasis for Coach Boyle is transition defense. His teams are taught not to give up easy baskets as a result of a fast break. Coach Boyle takes you through a drill that starts as a 2-on-1 and culminates as a full 5-on-5. The drill allows for you to defend against every possible fast-break scenario in preparation for your next opponent. Players are taught to get back on defense and learn to buy in to Coach Boyle’s philosophy of full-court defense.

    The Art of Rebounding

    Coach Boyle realizes that rebounding effectively leads to success in basketball. In this 81-minute video, Boyle spends time going through his Circle Drill, one that is used to teach boxing-out and rebounding skills. The entire video is well done and provides coaches with Coach Boyle’s beliefs about defense and rebounding as well as the drills he has used to build a Pac-12 contender at Colorado.
