with Jim Calhoun,
2011 NCAA Championship Coach – only the fifth coach to win three NCAA titles (2011, 2004 & 1999);
member of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame (Class of 2005);
17 Big East Championships (10 regular season 7 tournament titles); over 850 career victories

Coach Jim Calhoun outlines the pressure defense which has led the Huskies to national prominence and an NCAA Championship! Unlike most pressure defenses, Calhoun’s 2-2-1 focuses on pressuring the ball down the sideline in the back court, reserving traps until the ball has passed half court. Demonstrations include: secondary trapping, ball denial on the inbound pass, soft pressure to slow tempo, middle denial, and sideline recovery traps. 2-on-2 and 2-on-4 drills reinforce trapping responsibilities. 1-on-2 “alley drills” teach players to communicate on defense. This versatile defense allows your team to press and create turnovers without giving up defensive position.
