One of the most important defensive concepts is the theory of keeping your body between your man and the basket. Your defensive positioning should always be between the rim and the man you are guarding. Be within an arms reach of your man, so you can put pressure on the ball. Focus on his belly button...where it goes, he will go. You can be faked out by his eyes, head and shoulder fakes, but not his mid-section. Try to make him go where he doesn´t want to go. The more times you turn him, the better defense you are playing.
