- Behind the scenes look into the 2-2-1 press with Basketball Hall of Fame coach, Jim Calhoun
- Defensive drills to build the up-tempo 2-2-1 press
- Versatile defense allows your team to press and create turnovers without giving up defensive position
with Jim Calhoun,
2004 and 1999 NCAA Championship Coach
Coach Jim Calhoun outlines the pressure defense which has led the Huskies to national prominence and an NCAA Championship! Unlike most pressure defenses, Calhoun's 2-2-1 focuses on pressuring the ball down the sideline in the back court, reserving traps until the ball has passed half court. Demonstrations include: secondary trapping, ball denial on the inbound pass, soft pressure to slow tempo, middle denial, and sideline recovery traps. 2-on-2 and 2-on-4 drills reinforce trapping responsibilities. 1-on-2 "alley drills" teach players to communicate on defense. This versatile defense allows your team to press and create turnovers without giving up defensive position.
