Chapter 2 - Goals of Jim Huber's Man to Man Defense
It's important for you to understand the goals of the defense, philosophy, and what it's trying to accomplish. The primary goal of his defense is simple...
"Don't let the opponent score."
This is accomplished by sealing seams and keeping the ball as far from the basket as possible. No lay ups are allowed in this defense and the only shot allowed is a highly contested jump shot on the perimeter.
The defense is highly adaptable for slow teams that need to pack it in or quick teams that can get out and force more turnovers.
