To me that's less of a "being unable to play defense" and more of a rookie mistake.
I think if he uses his momentum and goes with Kovy as he splits the 2 dmen he is close enough to lift his stick or get his body on him before he can get to the rebound...once both dmen stop there is nothing they can do being flatfooted.
