Here is a drill to use to teach using down screens while responding to a live defender.
Set-up: Place 3 cones in a diagonal line. The shooter will always pass by the middle cone, while the defender has to run around the back cone or in front of the top cone.
Step 1: The offensive player will read the defensive player and cut according to which cone they choose.
Step 2: The coach will pass the ball to 1 and live 1v1 play commences.
Step 3: Play to 10. Points scored with no dribble are worth 2, points scored any other way are worth 1.
