How can I work on playing quicker defense?

Soto Drill

I learned this one from Eric Soto who had lightning quick defensive reaction time. This one is only for the serious digger.

Here goes.
You grab a ball and put yourself about 5-10 feet from a wall. Next toss the ball in the air and spike it hard against the wall so it launches back at you. Dig or deflect the ball into the air or at a simulated target on the wall.

After getting the hang of it try hitting the ball harder(or stepping closer to the wall) and at different spots so you get to work at deflecting the ball in different positions or with various body parts.
