Help Defense

Help Defense:
When your man is 2 passes away from the ball , you must learn to play weakside or help defense. Help defense means just that... if someone else´s man is driving to the hoop and has beaten the defender, you must leave your man and move to a position in front of them with both feet on the ground, ( facing the player ) and stop the drive; then once the ball is stopped, go back to your man.

  • Point one hand to your man and the other to the ball and maintain a position that allows you to see both your man and the ball.
  • Align yourself with the center of the basketball floor: stopping the ball, no matter who is guarding him, is your first concern. This contributes to good team defense.
