On Defense always be able to see your man and the ball (this is when your man doesn´t have the ball). To do this you must be in a defensive triangle position with you, the ball and your man. Flatten out the triangle, with you at the center point of the triangle. When your man is 1 pass away, you can deny the player from getting the ball. You must be in a defensive triangle position with you, the ball and your man. Flatten out the triangle, with you at the center point of the triangle. As your man moves - you must move. Any time the ball is passed YOU MUST JUMP TO THE BALL. Make gradual, quick, immediate adjustments in your stance. You must be in position before the ball is caught. Jumping to the ball allows you to be in proper position to front cutters, avoid screens (be a moving target), and help teammates. Any time the ball is dribbled you must make the proper ball side or help side adjustments in positioning.
Making these small adjustments will prevent you from needing to make one large adjustment. That is when the offense takes advantage of you.
