Some thoughts on beating pressure from Dena Evans at Point Guard College
F ormula for beating all presses:
-Have an attack mindset, put fear in their mind
-Traps are opportunities to get easy baskets
-Any pass out of a trap is a good pass.
-Goods allow presses to work
-Don’t leave guards to bring ball down by themselves.
-Every trap ball needs 3 nearby receivers
-Pressure is a false front to make you hurry, panic, make errors, and take quick shots
-Misconception—presses are used to make you take bad shots. You beat a press when you get easy shots
