Pivot/Pass Drill

  • Purpose

A good press can produce back-court turnovers, steals and easy baskets for your team.  The press keeps the opponent off-balance, changes the tempo of the game, and often forces the opposing coach to use valuable time-outs.

  • Setup

For this iteration of the man press, the defense will come out matched up man to man, with the exception of the man defending the inbounder – the center in Figure 1 – who will stay back as a safety. The rest of the defenders will line up in front of their matchups, looking to deny the inbound pass.
