In this post, we'll take a look at how a 212 Press can be used to provide 3/4 pressure on your opponent and allow you to flow into your half-court defense.
We've been using 212 Pressure as our preferred press for the past three years. It was something I really grew to like as I studied the film of one of our opponents. We have generally used it with the intention of putting pressure on the basketball and perhaps stealing a few extra possessions over the course of the game. What I like about it the most is that we have been able to apply pressure while preventing the easy layups that accompany more aggressive full-court presses. In most cases, we are dropping back into a 23 zone out of this pressure but it is certainly possible to fall back into man-to-man as well.
