Ranked among the top five in the nation for high school basketball, three time ESPN NHSI Champions with for players drafted into the NBA, Findlay Prep Coach Michael Peck demonstrates a Half Court Man-to-Man Gap Defense that contains dribble penetration and keeps the ball out of the key. This defense will encourage your opponent to become a jump shooting team, taking shots outside the key but inside the three point arc - the gray area. Coach Peck lays out the six components of the defense, which are vital in understanding how the defense works. Learn the basics of the defense and the heart of what the defense is - playing the gaps. He talks about the 3 phases of ball pressure: man-you-ball triangle, the one step off the line, and two steps down the line positioning. He uses the "Position Check" Drill to direct and demonstrate how the players are to position and rotate in this defense. Coach Peck outlines the three components the wing can do when the ball is entered into the post: dig, dive, or stay. Using these components of the gap man-to-man defense, you can build a better defense that will protect the key and cause confusion and ultimately mistakes by your opponent. 100 minutes. 2012. DVD.
