Layer 8 – Trigger Base

Points of Emphasis

A logical progression we’ve got the ball to the left corner.

We’ve set ourselves up for success by fronting the post.

Or if they’re in a 4 or 5 out motion we are already strong at midline.

When you help on the baseline drive – drop and rotate. A very familiar rotation you’ve already worked on from previous defenses.

Get on the wall. When the ball gets to the left corner we want to ‘trigger’. Communicate it to your players. The person guarding the ball in the corner will get even higher on the right hand and make them drive hard along the left baseline while the help defender sprints over to trap along the baseline. Very important that the help does not sprint over to trap until the ball is driven baseline.
