About This Play/Drill

In this diagram and embedded video we look at a drill for fundamentals and conditioning. The offense is not allowed to shoot, and must possess the ball for 3 minutes total. Every turnover, they run a conditioning penalty. It can be a grueling drill, but teaches maximum ball security.
