Grinnell Defensive System
Grinnell has been known as an scoring machine, but much of their offense is predicated on forcing turnovers. They force an average of 29 turnovers per game with a goal of 32. The Grinnell defense starts in the full-court with intense ball pressure trying to force the ball to the outer third of the court. The wings try to force the ball up the sideline without allowing a return pass to the inbounder, the interceptor defends passes sideline and middle and the safety is more concerned with a pass down the sideline then crosscourt. The system is show against four different press attacks. The DVD also demonstrates pressing off a missed shot and a variety of special situations including defending in the half-court.
