With Roy Williams, University of North Carolina Head Coach; 2009 and 2005 National Champions, 4X Time National "Coach of the Year," Winningest Active Coach in College Basketball.
In the rich Tar Heel basketball tradition, defense has always been a foundation. In this DVD, Coach Williams unpacks the entire system. The numbering system is important and is broken down: 20 = man-to-man, 30 = double team the dribble and 40 = double team the pass. The 20 series is broken into 22, 23 and 24, depending on the point of pick up. Half court coverage is 32 and 33 = three-quarter court pick up with the double team on the dribble. Williams aims for a 3-1-1 balance between man-to-man, scramble and zone defense, which is perfect for the coach who wants to disrupt and change the opponent's offense. On the projection screen, Williams diagrams the coverages in the 32 defense. At the same time, he instructs players to assume the same position as the diagram. Two variations of 32 are presented based on the trap coming from in front or behind. In this live half court session, the defense demonstrates the 32 and 42. The trap is an effective weapon on sideline out of bounds situations. This is a denial defense that attempts to keep the ball from coming inside. Taking questions from the crowd, Williams runs the scramble against a number of different offensive alignments. The versatility of the scramble defense is obvious as Williams demonstrates its consistent flexibility.
