Here’s what each Basketball Coaches Association New York Clinic 2005 speaker presents:
Dave Odom- Retired, former Head Coach at South Carolina, also saw stints at Wake Forest, and East Carolina in the same role- Post-play, and presser defense. “Key to disarm pressure = passing and catching (put you in position)”.
Phil Martelli- Current Head Coach at Saint Joseph’s- Gives drills, defensive philosophy, and gives teaching points of free throw shooting. “Implement drills that are scored by the number of defensive stops and not always by when the offense scores”.

Travis Ford- Current Head Coach at Oklahoma State University- Defensive principles. “Never retreat on defense…always attack and attack…be aggressive”.
Tom Pecora- Current Head Coach at Fordham University- Discusses the terminology you use in your program, and some defensive ideas. “Terminology- Make sure all staff is saying the same thing – so kids can learn quicker”.
Joe Mantegna- Current Head Coach at Blair Academy in Blairstown, NJ- Man/Man Defensive philosophy, and rebounding. “Don’t box out… “Chuck and Chase”.
