Breaking the Press

At the Excel Longhorn Classic, we faced our first full court press, so I quickly called a timeout and began teaching a press break. Now, we know and we work on both applying the 1-3-1 full court and half court press and breaking it in every practice. 

For our players, the important part is to keep your head up, look down court and ''catch and pass" , dribbling more than 2-3 times allows the defense to catch up and get a steal.
