DIAGRAM 2—PRESSING DEFENSE 2-2-1

The first pass in has been made, and the two front men immediately become the attack men, ready for a hard pinch. The right front man on the side of the in-bounds pass, is one to two steps to the outside, so #3 cannot go to the outside, and dribble down the sidelines. Tell him to get low on defense and drive the man toward the middle so that he can get help on the pinch.
