7 Cardinal Defensive Principles
Looking to increase your defensive efficiency this season? Try adding these defensive principles from the legend, Adolph Rupp.
- Cut Down the Number of Shots
- “Teams must shoot to score, and if you can reduce their scoring opportunities by aggressive defensive play, you will eliminate the danger of a high score.”
- Cut Down the Percentage of Shots
- “If you can force a team to take hurried, off-balance, inaccurate shots, you’ll destroy their shooting percentage. That is the difference between aggressive defense and a defense that permits a team to get good shots.”
