Defending basketball on grass: Learning from TCU

Over at SB Nation I examine how TCU designs, structures, and recruits their 4-2 defense to stop HUNH offenses.

TCU's strategies are starting to become mainstream across the league, and you see Kansas St. employ many of the same principles with the aim of building a single defensive package that can stand up to a large variety of opposing tactics.

In theory, if you have 11 players that can work in concert together to make things difficult for the offense regardless of the opposing strategy or plays, you can start to build the kind of chemistry that leads to premier execution.

When football becomes basketball on grass, execution of simple structures becomes the most essential goal in order to achieve victory.
