1v1 WOLF

Offensive player (BLUE1) starts in outlet box.


Defensive player (BLACK1) is out of bounds with ball on baseline. He/she is the "wolf"


Defense inbounds to offense and begins to chase the offensive player. Offense wants to finish with an extended layup if defense is trailing or an outside-inside stride stop if defense gets on inside hip.


Defense tries to block the shot low using the near hand. Defense avoids over-pursuing. DO NOT GO PAST THE BACKBOARD! Rebound any missed shot!


If the defense is able to catch up and get in front of the offense, it becomes 1v1 Live.


Offense and defense switch for the return trip down the opposite side of the court
