Full Court Press is a Basketball term for a defensive style in which the defense applies man to man or zone defense to pressure the offensive team the entire length of the court before and after the inbound pass.

Defenses not employing a full court press generally allow the offensive team to get halfway down the court (a half court press) or near the basket before applying strong defensive pressure.

In a normal game of basketball, each team will have 5 players. This is most easily done when playing full court, but is still acceptable for half court play.

A flat ball doesn't have a lot of air in it, so it doesn't bounce that well, where as a full basketball has less resistance, and therefore bounces higher. Basically, the difference is the amount of air in the basketball.

a full court press is where your team makes a shot, then stay on the opponents side of the court and try to stop them from advancing passed half court. if you hold them on their side of the court for 8 seconds, that's a foul on the other team, called the 8 second violation.

Same as full court except when you get a rebound you must bring the ball outside of the 3 point line in order for you and your team to score a basket. Crossing the 3 point line serves as crossing half court as in a full court game.
