with Travis Ford,
University of St. Louis Head Coach;
former Oklahoma State University Head Coach; 2008 NIT Championship Runnerup
Go to practice with Travis Ford and his staff as they build the foundation for their 201213 season. Using live, oncourt practice drills and explanations, Coach Ford demonstrates how to build an attacking pressure defense starting with 1on1 drills and progressing to 5on5 full court defensive pressure.
Ford wants his team to play aggressive, full court defense and work together to stop dribble penetration and pass entry. Coach details how to properly closeout and deny your opponent the paint through various drills including 1on0 closeout and zigzag.
As part of their seasonlong emphasis on rebounding better, Ford uses a competitive 4on4 circle rebounding drill to emphasize attacking the glass on the offensive and defensive end. He gives you drills that teach your players defensive techniques and strategies for defending the dribble handoff, down screen action, ball screen action, and post play.
Coach Ford rolls out his offensive system and teaches you the basics and breakdowns for his Power Offense. Coach uses fundamental drills to build the necessary skills your players will need to be successful in any offensive system. He progressively works his way from individual ball handling against pads to twoball passing, to individual shooting from game spots, to 3on0 transition breaks that include actions within the Power Offense. Watch everything come together with full court and half court 5on0 and 5on5 situations, including scoring options within the Power Offense.
In the final practice session, Coach Ford meshes his attacking offensive and defensive philosophies together. You will see how he uses 3on0, 5on0 and 5on5 situations to create a gamelike atmosphere.
He uses a competitive 5on4 defensive transition to work on stopping the ball in the open court and preventing easy buckets. By creating disadvantages in practice, your team will be able to build an illusion on the defensive end that no offensive player is open for an easy bucket.
You will also see 5on5 half court possessions that demonstrate secondary break options and counter scoring options within the Power Offense.
