Man to Man Half-Court
In many cases, probably in most cases at higher levels of play, defensive mistakes occur because a player loses focus; not because they don't know what to do.
A key to successful team defence is the ability of 'off-ball' defenders to maintain vision on both their check and the basketball. While it seems easy, it is not.
In an ideal situation when a defender is sliding with ball-handler, the lead hand (the hand on the side the ball-handler is going) should be up and the other hand, the point hand, should be down discouraging the crossover dribble.
This is a great drill to work on defensive rotations and attacking penetration.
As players begin initially to play defense it is a natural progression to move from where they provide no defensive help to their teammates to where they eventually over help.
