Jim Foster is truly the "coaches coach" - in fact, several of his former assistant coaches have gone on to make a tremendous impact in the women's college game, including: Geno Auriemma (UConn), Muffet McGraw (Notre Dame), Deb Patterson (K-State) and Cindy Griffin (St. Joe's). This innovative DVD covers the 3-2 zone, free throw shooting, no-hands defense, pressure shooting, and transition drills - all in one presentation! Foster gives his players their best chance to win by devising defenses that maximize team effectiveness. Whether his team plays man-to-man, zone or a junk defense, the end result is usually successful. Because of a focus on physical play in today's game, he installed a no-hands defense that has drastically reduced fouling. Zone defense is a big part of Ohio State's success, featuring 1-1-3, match-up and the 3-2 zone. Foster thoroughly breaks down the 3-2 zone showing slides, post defense, rebounding, high post coverage and ball pressure. He uses players and chairs to illustrate key teaching points. A huge proponent of applying shot pressure, all of his drills focus on that concept. In other areas of this basketball instructional video, Foster demonstrates competitive team free throw games, adding game-like pressure to shooters. Fosters demonstrates his love for transition by showing his two favorite transition drills. Applicable to all levels of play, these drills build from 2-on-1 up to 5-on-5.
