DIAGRAM 8—PRESSING DEFENSE 2-2-1

I will, on a prearranged signal, have the back man follow the center up into the front court if our opponent has established a pattern of passing to his center man in the middle of the floor. The back man checks #6, and as the front men close for the double pinch, the back man slides over to intercept the possible return pass to #3.

The two middle men must drop back to cover the area that the back man has vacated. Usually the middle man to the ball side stays up, and the opposite side middle man drops back to defense against the long pass.
