Post subject:  speed dribble

I watched the uptempo defense system and would like to use it with my team (juvenile boys) but my players 4 and 5 are very slow. How they can put pressure on the speed dribble without fouling and being beaten? and do you use the press all the court or until the 3 pt line on defense court? Thank you.

Over the years I coached many different 4s and 5s. Most were not super fast. If I had one that was really slow ,we would put the slow one at the three point line and deny with with the other players up front. The really big slow one did not have to run as much, but could play the rules in the press easier. As far as fouling, most fouls are due to reaching. Do not let them reach. If a four or five gets beat on a speed dribble, as long as they are willing to work hard and the rest of the team follows the rules about hitting a player in a speed dribble, it usually works out.
