The Circle Defense: Dave Robbins

( 0 Reviews )

Former Virginia Union Coach Dave Robbins developed a Division II powerhouse and the circle defense was a large part of their success.

The Circle Defense is an aggressive, trapping zone run out of a 2-3 or 3-2 set. The defense is taught in a clinic setting on-court in a 5-on-5 situation. It can be run with the three back line players being the “circle” in a 2-3 set or the three perimeter players as the “circle” in a 3-2 set. The defense can be run with scramble action - strong side guard trap - or mad dog action - four-men trapping. Coach Robbins finishes the presentation by demonstrating how they incorporate switching from the zone to man-to-man within each possession.
