I share in this post a short video with a practice drill focused on improving our defensive transition rules as a team.

In my mind, the most important rules to do a right defensive transition must be:

  • Go for the offensive rebound resolutely. If we can not grab it, press the outlet pass.
  • Do not allow the opponent to get easy buckets (no lay-ups).
  • Stop the ball as quickly as possible. The baller has to be stopped during his/her second bounce.
  • Collapse the middle lanes.
  • Not to allow the bigs to cut through the paint without bumping them (mismatch).
  • Watch out for shooters.
  • Match up as quickly as we are able to.
