With Dan Ninham, Cass Lake-Bena (MN) High School Head Coach, 2005 Minnesota HS Coach of the Year.
Dan Ninham's stifling pressure defensive system has yielded the nation's second best record of consecutive 100-point games with eight. His constant baseline to baseline defensive pressure has forced opponents into an average of 31 turnovers per game. Ninham introduces three contrasting defenses with a high, mid, low and fire option for each. A unique combination of full court, _ and half court alignments keeps the offense on their heels with ball pressure, traps and pass denial. Specific spots in the back court and at mid court are designated for two-man traps. The glass wall and mirroring the ball are concepts that optimize every trapping situation. He also provides drills for stealing and trapping. What appears to be organized chaos is an orchestrated and efficient system of attacking the ball and forcing turnovers. This system of pressing creates high possession games and the ability to score easy baskets. By committing to this system, your team will soon be pushing the century mark every time out.
