These notes are from a presentation by former Virginia Commonwealth Men’s Assistant Coach Donny Lind.
1. MAKE 2 GUARD 1 TO CREATE SCRAMBLE
2. EXPLOIT POOR DEFENDERS • GUARDS WHO “MELT” or • IMMOBILE BIGS
3. SET BALL SCREENS IN SITUATIONS WHERE IT IS VERY DIFFICULT TO GUARD PROPERLY
4. CREATE “COUNTER” OPPORTUNITIES
5. CREATE A ROLE FOR UNSKILLED BIGS
WAYS TO DEFEND BALLSCREENS: • HEDGE • TRAP • LEVEL • SWITCH • DOWN • UNDER
