"Help defense" is used after somebody gets beat. It's good team play. However, does depending on it hurt your overall quality of defense? It drives me nuts to see us over-defending a wing man, letting them go baseline on us and depending on our post players to pick up the slack. It must be coached though, as this practice is prevalent thoughout the NCAA. I'd rather see good one-on-one defense that does not over-play. Put a stop on your man and make him squirm. This will pull his teammates towards him, hopefully disrupting their offense. Is this why I never made it past grade school coaching? Comments?
