"Zone Press Variations for Winning Basketball (second edition)" by veteran Division One basketball coach Cliff Ellis offers several smart strategies for implementing 94-feet of defensive intensity.
The "slide & trap" and "dogging" press in this handy book are explained in an easy to understand fashion. Moreover, Coach Ellis includes good teaching drills to perfect the many presses in this text. Chapter one defines the shape of the zone press. Subsequent chapters detail procedures and ways to attack an offense with a "full-court" and "half-court" press. In addition, the final chapter is dedicated to the super important process of knowing when and how to regroup into a zone after the pressure press.
I keep this book in my coaching bag and constantly take it out during those long breaks in AAU tournaments to review what we did right as a team and what we need to continue to work on. Recommended.
