  • Setup: drill begins with three offensive players competing against three defensive players at the three quarter court level.

  • Once the ball is crossed over half court the offense runs the guided shell action of the day. Examples:
    Pass, Cut, Fill (shown)
    Pass & Screen Away
    Pass, Follow, Ball Screen
    The teams compete until a shot is taken. If offense scores, the offense and defense switch roles. In order for the basket to count the offensive team that is now on defense, must get a stop to accompany their basket.
    A basket followed by a stop counts as one point.
    The drill is played until the first team scores three points – three baskets accompanied by three stops.
