In today’s video, Coach Tom explains “how to Close Out” when you’re playing off-ball defense. When you’re off the ball and playing Help Defense, you need to be ready to get back to your man should they have the ball passed back to them. To do this, you need a method that will allow you to close the gap, but also be able to counter them if they decide to shoot or take the ball to the basket. To pull this off, you can use what is called a “Close Out.” You’ll be able to get back to your man quickly, while staying on balance. As a bonus, you’ll also shut off the zip pass over your head into the post and you’ll be able to cut off any of their other attacks.

So if you’re looking to transition from Off-Ball Defense back to On-Ball Defense, then Closing Out is your best method!
