Drill for inside-out threes on the catch, judging closeout distances and attacking closeouts. Credit: @MG_Basketball
Drill begins with four players spaced around perimeter. Player 1 passes to player 2 and follows into a closeout. Coach may ask for a short, long or traditional closeout to vary the read to begin (phase B). In later reps the defender can make any closeout (Phase C).
Player 2 read the closeout and either shoots or drives. Player 1 replaces player 2 on perimeter.
SHORT Close Out = Shot
LONG close out = Drive the closeout
Traditional close out = move the defender (footwork, shot fake, PASS [One More])
Player 2 must get own rebound whether the shoot or drive to rim.
Player 2 then passes to Player 3 then follows into the closeout. Player 3 reads closeout and makes shot/drive decision
After the drill has cleared two spots, the next player in line (Player 6) joins the drill by passing to Player 1 in corner and following into close out. Player 1 now has shot/drive read.
Player 3 passes to player 4 and follows with closeout. Player 4 has shot/drive read.
This drill continues with this pattern.
