(English) Level 3
(English) 1.4.5 “Box and 1” defence
(English) Simply, the “Box and 1” is a combination defence, with one defender denying a particular player the ball at all times. This is done by playing a “tight” man to man style defence, however without any responsibility for “help” or rotation. The defence is mostly used if a team has a particularly dominant perimeter player.
The remaining four defenders play a “zone” defence and the rules of the 1-1-3 Match Up can be used to quickly develop a “Box and 1” defence.
