April 11, 2008, Newsletter Issue #342: On The Ball Defense

Tip of the Week

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 ball 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. Try to make him go where he doesnīt want to go. From the middle of the court... force him to the sideline. From a wing position, force him baseline 12-15 feet away from the basket.
