Half-court defense – this is the part of a team’s organized defensive play wherein the defensive team occupies their half side of the court in predetermined positions. It is considered a catch-all term for any kind of defense that a team usually deploys when they have the time of preparing a defensive strategy before the offensive team has a chance to score. The term also defines any half-court traps or presses a defensive team will employ, or the kind of defense they will select during out-of-bounds plays. The defense may include a man-to-man defense or zone defense or the combination of both.
