with Billy Tubbs, Lamar University Head Coach, former Oklahoma University Head Coach, NCAA Runner-Up ('88), 2X National "Coach of the Year".
Coach Tubbs' press is a trapping, man-to-man press based on quickness, anticipation, and communication. This defense has been the cornerstone of one of the most successful coaches in the country. Using on-court demonstration, Tubbs details each player's responsibilities, when and how to trap, how to stunt, and transitional coverage once the press has been broken. He includes basic coverages for all press breaks and breakdown drills to improve coverage and communication skills. Tubbs teaches trapping areas, close down techniques, defending screens, and covering guard penetration, skip passes and other special situations. He also teaches special sideline calls such as trapping off the first dribble and trapping off the first pass. This is an enthusiastic and impressive instructional video for teaching one of the most feared trapping defenses in the game today!
