- Get layups/ open 3 point shots
- Play off a numbers advantage 2 v 1, 3 v 2, 4 v 3

- Sprinting back into the paint area to prevent layups. Force mid range jump shots.
- When there’s a numbers advantage, go into a zone temporarily until help gets back.
Sounds simple? Well it’s easier said than done- I’ll break down these principles in depth for you and explain what drills you can use to teach the vital concept of transition defense.
