About This Play/Drill

This is another drill that I got from watching Bellarmine University practice last week. This is a great drill because it not only works on scramble situations having 4 players defend 5 in the half-court, but it also forces the offense (new defense) to sprint back after change of possession to prevent any easy lay-ups. After making your one transition stop after a made shot or the defense secures the rebound and repeat the drill the other way. Make sure you switch the offense and defensive teams who must scramble each time and rotate the players that are back. Do this drill for time or until a team reaches a pre-set point total.

  • Basketball Play - 5 on 4 to 5 on 5 Transition

Team plays live 5 on 4 until a score or missed shot. On score or missed shot, defense is pushing the ball down the floor as as quick as possible. The 5 offensive players (now on Defense) must Sprint back to the pain as the 5th offensive player is already down the court.
