Frustrate your opponent's top two scorers! Prevent your opponent from getting into rhythm offensively!

Former National Coach of the Year Rick Majerus unveils for the first time his philosophy on the triangle and two defense. Majerus shows you how this "disruptor defense," when used on a selective basis, can immobilize your opponent.

Majerus teaches and demonstrates the critical components of aggressive close outs and how to defend various cutters, screens and hand-offs. Majerus presents an in-depth discussion on player responsibilities as they relate to the three defensive zones utilized in this baffling defense.

He shows the "fake and fade" technique to prevent shooters from being able to "rhythm up" and get open looks at the basket. By taking away their shot, players are forced to become drivers and dribble into the triangle. To counter dribble penetration and assist with box-out responsibilities, Majerus teaches the "sliding the triangle." He also provides game clips that reinforce the various concepts of this dominating defense.

Cut off your opponent's life blood and force them to prepare for one more defense; the Triangle and Two!
