DEFENSIVE THOUGHTS AND QUESTIONS FOR YOUR PLAYERS FROM DON MEYER

Questions for your players:

1. How many people do you know who are really committed to excellence?  List them.  And if you aren't on this list, why?

2. What did you do to make us a better team this week?  List them.

3. What players made our team better this week?  If you aren't on this list, why?

(These are good questions whether your are in-season or not)


Defensive Thoughts:

Over help on defense rather than under help.

Soft is bad unless it's a shot.

Defensive objectives
   No transition baskets
   No 3's by 3 point shooter
   Hand up on every shot
   Stop a score in the post

Make the spot up shooter dribble

Four advantages of soft on the wing
   Difficult to get beat off the dribble
   Discourages post feeds
   Encourages dribble or early shot
   Hard to feed cutter

Post Defense: "They all turn to one shoulder more than the another.  Park on that shoulder."

Fronting the Low Post: "Get into their legs.  Butt into the knees."
