  • x2 and x4 defensive slide to the middle and touch

  • x1 and x3 defensive slide to the middle and touch hands

  • After touching, all four defenders close out to their men

  • All the players who have the ball drive towards the baseline.
    Each defender big steps, covers the ball, and gets into a dead call stance when the offense picks it up.
    One modification - follow all the previous steps but add to the offense by having them dribble two bounce to their right, cross over, and go two dribbles the other way. Guard the ball and once the offense is done after the crossover, have them pick it up, and the defense goes into dead ball position.
