These drills allow you to work on the fundamentals of the press daily such as trapping, intercepting, and converting off of a turnover. He demonstrates a pressing gauntlet where players work at trapping in the front court and at half court. He demonstrates several drills that will improve your help defense in half court man-to-man. Your players will learn how to react, when the basketball is being driven both middle and baseline, in order to stop the penetration.
On offense, coach uses individual and 5v4 concepts to teach the offensive skills needed to play in Mayhem. He breaks guards and post players down to work on ball handling, finishing moves, and shooting out of Mayhem. He puts everything together in 5v4 secondary break were his offense works on their secondary break sets that lead into pick and roll situations. These drills will improve ball handling and shooting in transition. If you are a pressing team, like Mount Saint Mary's, you will want to play the game at a fast pace where effective transition offense is highly critical
You will also get multiple drills that will improve agility, speed, and hand-eye coordination. All three tools are critical in order to play basketball at a high level.
