23 Zone breakdown drill to teach the "BUMP" on the wing. The drill can be a halfcour teaching drill, but as drawn it also encompasses full court conversion with an offensive advantage.
In Bump Drill the guards and forwards must communicate and execute the BUMP at the wing.
The forwards (x3 & x4) are responsible for disallowing the 3-point shot! No wing threes!
The guards (x1 & x2) are responsible for the drive middle from the wing.
Player 1 passes to Player 2 - X3 closes out on Player 2. Approach ready to contest the shot with outside hand. Take a stance that influences the drive into the help
X1 sprints over and BUMPS X3 off the ball.
Talk! "BUMP!! BUMP!!"
X3 bumps off facing the ball, arms up and towards the short corner to deter a pass to the player who may be behind the zone in that area. X1 jabs at Player 2 with outside hand.
X2 must FACE & FEEL - Face the ball, feel the high post with inside hand
Player 2 centers to Player 1
X2 closes out to take away the 3PA.
X1 must sprint in to feel the high post

Bump Drill can be a halfcourt only drill, but it also presents an opportunity to work on conversion with an advantage
Eventually the offense finds a shot and Black team begins to covert to defense
Made or missed, green team converts to offense 4v3. FIND - Anytime the offense has an advantage the mission is to FIND the open player. Runs lanes. Pitch ahead or race the dribble

After the score, convert back to zone defense
Black team converts to offense and bump drill continues until black team finds a shot commits turnover.
The drill has now gone Here, There and Back. Rotate the drill
