Reason I – Defense will feed into offense

There is a phenomenon is the game of basketball which I find curiously intriguing. In basketball, a player can kickstart their offense by playing well on defense.  You have seen a player or two in your day, struggling on their shots, suddenly turn things around with a good steal or rebound.

That is a common theme in basketball, and happens in both college and in the pros. The only challenge so far to that is upgrading Crisp’s defense.

New 2-3 means new results

While the Washington Basketball team played a version of the 2-3 defense in the past, it was not hammered home on the players. Roles were confusing, as player would be out of position frequently.

That will not be the case for Coach Hopkins. His 2-3 is taught by the textbook, and as such, we discussed the defensive strategy at length before in this article. Hopkins loves guards, and he knows he has a good one in David Crisp.
