Rutgers University Head Coach,
distinguished member of the Naismith Hall of Fame (2009); 3X National Coach of the Year
Make your team better by giving them a chance to stay in games against any sized team.
C. Vivian Stringer has proven to be one of the all-time best coaches in college basketball and a large part of her success as a coach has come from her aggressive and intense style of defense. Coach Stringer has used full-court pressure defense to overwhelm and frustrate opponents and to score more effectively.
Using on-court demonstrators, Stringer systematically builds her "55" full-court pressure defense. Stringer walks through each player's positioning, responsibilities and rules in great detail to force the action and control the dribbler. This defense is used to cause turnovers, create fast breaks, control game tempo and increase scoring opportunities with an aggressive, trapping style. It can also easily transition into half-court man or zone defense.
Stringer builds the "Chaos" defense by taking the players through the 1-, 2-, 3- and 4-man switch with the run & jump. She finishes by outlining the important elements to her base "55" trapping defense.
This defense will get all of your players involved in the game and make your team better by giving them a chance to stay into games against any sized team.
