With Blaine Taylor, Old Dominion University Head Coach.
Attacking pressure requires an organized system that players understand and can execute. Coach Taylor's first piece of advice when beating full-court pressure is deciding whether you want to score or just handle the pressure. Each approach has its own rules and mentality. He puts players in their initial positions on the floor as he begins to show this attack. He wants his team to always look for lay-ups under any kind of pressure versus shooting the first open 3-point shot available. Taylor shows four moves to score after breaking pressure, including his 17 foot-move and teaches how to get to the rim with just one bounce. Finishing the play must be taught and can involve one, two or three players - and Taylor demonstrates each. This system includes several different sets and alignments used for attacking different pressure situations. Moving to the half court, Taylor shows, step-by-step, how to beat pressure. Court spacing, ball movement and punching the paint are all ingredients for success. This system is designed to beat trapping situations, scrambles and double teams. The third segment involves throwing the ball in bounds from the side or baseline.
