Basketball Defense Drills

Basketball is a popular sport played by two teams of five players with a ball. The game takes place on a rectangular court. The team goal is to score a ball into the basket of the opponent team. The team with the most points wins the game.

The successful playing basketball requires skills, knowledge and abilities from the players. There are various basketball strategies and tactics that allow the teams to play effectively and win the basketball games and competitions.

The basketball strategies can be divided on two large groups:

  • Offensive strategies
  • Defensive strategies.

The defensive strategies are the most popular in basketball. There two main defensive strategies:

  • Zone defense
  • Man-to-man defense.

“Man-to-man defense is a type of defensive tactic used in team sports such as American football, association football, basketball, and netball, in which each player is assigned to defend and follow the movements of a single player on offense. Often, a player guards his counterpart (e.g. center guarding center), but a player may be assigned to guard a different position. The strategy is not rigid however, and a player might switch assignment if needed, or leave his own assignment for a moment to double team an offensive player. "[Wikipedia]

“Zone defense is a type of defense, used in team sports, which is the alternative to man-to-man defense; instead of each player guarding a corresponding player on the other team, each defensive player is given an area known as a "zone" to cover. "[Wikipedia]
