Up Shadow

The "Up" Shadow differs from the basic Shadow in that on the made shot, the player defending the inbound passer SMOTHERS and exerts strong pressure on the inbounds passer while all other defenders assume strong SNUGGLE pass denial positions. When the inbounds pass is made, the defender sprint releases and assumes a normal shadow position. Once in position, the "Shadow" can either trap or hold (fake the trap).

When the ball is inbounded to O1, X1 after initially assuming a SNUGGLE pass denial position on O1, moves to an ON position and pushes O1 to side checkpoint. Defender X2 rotates from a SNUGGLE denial position on O2 to a high Helpside "I" position. X3 maintains a SNUGGLE pass denial position on O3. X4 rotates to a low Helpside "I" position. On the inbounds pass, X5 sprint releases to a "Shadow" support position 8' to 10' directly behind X1 ready to trap the ball handler O1 with X1 on near sideline checkpoint.

Note: If ball is inbounded to O2, X2 assumes the ON position with X5 assuming a "Shadow" position behind X2. X4 maintains a pass denial SNUGGLE position on O4, and X1 and X3 rotate into Helpside "I" positions.

Trap Option

ON ball defender X1 and "Shadow" X5 lock up and trap dribbler O2 on near sideline checkpoint. X2, X3 and X4 form a Helpside Triangle "I". Shadow X5 also has options of faking the trap (Hold) or "Jump Switching" according to coach's decision.

CAUTION: when any time the shadow player X5 is unable to get into proper position, Shadow pressure is off and basic half court oriented SOS rules apply. Also, on any deep outlet or outlet into the middle of the floor, Shadow pressure is not feasible, and basic transition pressure defense is in effect.

Matching Up

When O1 passes out to O2, X2 closes out and pushes O2 to sideline checkpoint. X4 closes out to O4 and assumes a SNUGGLE pass denial position. X5 sprint releases to the basket and guards O5. X3 drops into a low Helpside "I" position, and X1 takes a strong pass denial position against O1, preventing any return pass that would allow O1 to initiate the set offense.

Caution: It is extremely important that all close outs and rotations take place as the ball leaves the passer's hands.

If O2 passes ahead to O4, X4 assumes a SET position and pushes O4 to corner or baseline checkpoint. X5 FRONTS O5 in low post area. X2 creates "Box Pressure" by assuming a Snuggle pass denial position on O2. X1 and X3 take Helpside "I" positions. Anytime the ball is advanced on dribble or pass to an area below the free throw line extended, SOS Base Go I or at the coach's discretion Base Go Red rules are in effect.

Up Shadow HOLD
