Basketball Play - 4 vs 3 No Threes

4 vs 3 No Threes

Anonymous 12/15/2014

In my college experiences I've worked with some of the best defensive coaches in the business; Tim Floyd, Kevin O'Neill, Larry Eustachy, and Gary Garner. Each of them ran tough, competitive practices with demanding drills. Here is one that will really help your half court defense. Getting to three point shooters is important to a solid half court defense. This diagrammed drill is based on getting to the shooting and taking away the open three. It demands great communication, rotation, anticipation, closing out, being there on the catch, vision, blocking out and rebounding with two hands. If three defenders can successfully defend four players in this drill then your game time defense will shut down any opponent's three point shooting. DEFENSIVE RULES: 1. Must be there on the catch by offense 2. Ball pressure at all times 3. Communication entire possession 4. Two non-on ball defenders protect basket and lay ups 5. Secure rebound with two hands Getting to three point shooters is important to a solid half court defense. This diagrammed drill is based on getting to the shooting and taking away the open three. It demands great communication, rotation, anticipation, closing out, being there on the catch, vision, blocking out and rebounding with two hands. If three defenders can successfully defend four players in this drill then your game time defense will shut down any opponent's three point shooting. DRILL OPTIONS: 1. When does drill end? You can designate the number of passes, the number of threes taken away, or time. 2. If you set conditions and a defender or defenders violates it, you start possession over. 3. Conditions could include being there on the catch, hand up on closeout, communication re: who has ball, vision, three block outs, rebound the ball with two hands. 4. Can use this as a three man drill or a team drill; i.e.-8 players white and 3 players red. See More

Toughness and execution are the features of this three point close out drill. The goal is for the offensive player to get an open theee point shot at the top of the key. The defender's mission is to take the shot away. If he is successful they play 1 on 1 until a foul, basket, or defensive stop occurs. You can use this as an individual or team drill. It fosters toughness, shot selection and three point accuracy, decision making, closing out, defending and rebounding with two hands. It can add healthy peer pressure to your practices. See More

Basketball Play - Randolph Drill

Randolph Drill

Anonymous 08/27/2014

This is a tremendous early season conditioning drill. It is a very tough drill to do when you stress that the players get to the corners and take no shortcuts. We will do this for 1 minute on each side building up to 3-4 minutes a side. You can choose the dribble moves they use and also what type of finish you would like at the rim. Lastly, once they know the drill, when you want to run sprints, suicides, lines, etc. think of running this instead. Lots of handling, passing and finishing. See More

Basketball Play - 3-3 Conversion

3-3 Conversion

Anonymous 09/30/2013

Drill stolen from Coach Bob Hurley of St. Anthony H.S. He in turn got it from Dick Harter. As a rule the player who defensive rebounds or takes the ball out of bounds after a score is on offense and the old offense always converts to defense. This is similar to 11 man break or other 3-3 drills where the defense comes in from the sideline, but in my opinion is a little more practical because the defense had to convert from offense and is in a more realistic game scenario. Many successful coaches believe transition defense is one of the top 3 skills a team must have. As such, defensive transition should be drilled daily. A note about drills-make sure to teach the skills you want. Stopping the ball, protecting the basket, communicating, screening, passing, cuttining etc. You can play this drill for a set amount of time ie. 8 minutes and keep score. Depending on what you as a coach want to emphasize, points can be given or taken for offensive rebounds, turnovers etc. Because it is 3-3 conversion, a short clock can be used to promote an aggressive offensive attack.

Basketball Play - Stagger 2/3 & Shooting Breakdown

Stagger 2/3 & Shooting Breakdown

Anonymous 08/03/2013

Stagger screen for either of your best shooters. If 5 man helps too much on the screen, make sure to look inside for the slip instead of screen and space. In frame 3 you can see the spacing and how 5, 3 and 1 spread the floor. If you have more coaches you can have 3 take the shot off the curl and have a coach make two passes to 1 or add another coach and have one coach pass to 1 and another coach pass to 2. See More

Loop 2 & Shooting Breakdown

Anonymous 08/02/2013

Simple entry into a side ball screen. If you are fortunate enough to have some assistant coaches or managers and can have them pass, then you can run through your offense and get game spot shots at the same time. Be creative and I'm sure you can find a way to make a shooting drill out of your 5-0 offense. This will save you time and get players realistic shots within the offense. See More

Loop 2 Chase & Shooting Breakdown

Counter to Loop 2, sets up a middle ball screen. If 1 can't pass to 2 on the wing, 2 drifts to the corner and 5 ball screens 1. After 1 throws back to 5 on the pick and pop, 5 can shoot, dribble hand off with 2, pass to 2 and follow for the corner pick and roll, or drive at 2's defender to draw the help and kick out for an open 3. Coaches can pass to make this a 5-0 offensive drill in addition to a game spot shooting drill. See More

Basketball Play - 1-Hand Pass Follow Pick & Roll

1-Hand Pass Follow Pick & Roll

Anonymous 07/19/2013

Teaching your players to effectively and efficiently pass with 1 hand will improve skills and power and become overall better passers. The key to this drill is teaching both passers how to catch the ball and obsorb the force into your hand like a spring and fire the pass back from the shoulder area. When setting the pick & roll/pop many coaches force their players to roll opening their chest up so they never turn their back to the ball. I like to give my players the option to roll either way depending on their comfort level. (turning over their low shoulder or opening up). I personally prefer the quick turn (instead of opening to the ball) because it is quicker and the screener can create more space more efficiently. If they choose to turn over their low shoulder make sure they do it quickly and snap their head around first to locate the ball. Today I had each player make 3 shots from each spot/move and then repeated the drill on the right side. See More
