Run and Jump Defense

Run and Jump Defense :
A man-to-man pressure basketball  (external link) defense which can be extended full court to the baseline, 3/4 court or even half court with multiple variations as simple as 1 Jump and done scenarios; however, the basics follows these three rules:

  • 1. It is used only against baseline drives .
  • 2. The player who initiates the run-and-jump is a designated perimeter player who must shout, " Jump ! "
  • 3. Upon hearing the shout, the defender of the baseline driver quickly jumps to the weak-side exchanging defensive assignments.

This defense is designed to either speed or slow the offenses tempo , and to create a large number of turnovers in a short period of time .
