with Bobby Gonzalez, Seton Hall University Head Coach; former Manhattan College Head Coach
Coach Gonzalez can attribute his success as a basketball coach to an overlooked aspect of basketball: press defense. Coach Gonzalez teaches how to force turnovers, confuse and fatigue the defense, and how to create and capitalize on scoring opportunities using a relentless full-court man press.
Using markerboard presentation and extensive practice and game footage, Gonzalez details the match-up principles, alignments, and trap options for the White press (run out of a 1-2-1-1 set) and the Black press which emphasizes all out ball denial.
Gonzalez discusses how to use the White and Black presses to speed up the offense, get them off-balance, and force non-ball-handlers to bring the ball up the court. He also covers multiple scouting scenarios and drills to implement these press defenses against any press-breaker off both made and missed shots.
The White and Black press defenses will help your team play as one unit by pressuring other teams to play to your strengths giving you complete control of the game!
