See a logical, systematic way to build your defense.
ESPN college basketball analyst and international basketball expert Fran Fraschilla presents you with a progressive way to build your man-to-man defense through the use of practice drills.
Coach Fraschilla has spent years coaching and studying the game of basketball and has put together a thorough guide on man-to-man defense and principles. This is not an instructional DVD that is going to tell you exactly how to play your man-to-man defense, rather it focuses on building your program. Fraschilla guides you through extensive principles and philosophy that will make you think about how you teach your man-to-man defense.
Coach Fraschilla outlines his four points of emphasis that every man defense needs to incorporate: ball pressure, no splits, closeout and contest, and finish the possession. Fraschilla uses visual aids and charts to show the progressive style, both offensively and defensively, allowing his coaching staff to be prepared for any situation.
You will see six practice drills you can use to put all your defensive principles, strategies, and tactics together in various combinations. Fraschilla uses 4-on-4 drills to incorporate defending dribble penetration, staggered action, and defending screens. He emphasizes stunting and foot faking to take away offensive advantages when your defense is put into a tight situation. Coach describes the numerous variations you can create with a 4-on-4 shell drill, as well as:
- A 3-man series drill that will help you prepare for your opponents offensive screening action early in the season.
- Drills that will progressively build your man defense principles by using 4-on-4 and 3-on-3 half court demonstrations.
Coach Fraschilla uses the progressive build-up drills to make you think about your man-to-man principles. Coach describes ways to help you maintain your vision on the defensive end of the floor.
Coach Frischilla's building man-to-man defense DVD is great for any coach that is looking to improve their man-to-man philosophy or just starting out and looking to build their philosophy.
