Three phase drill to teach:
Taking Away Triple Threat
BALL - X1 assumes "nose on chest" defensive stance with both hands up taking away the shot and pass options and forcing 2 into dribbling.
DOWN - When 2 dribbles, X1 maintains "nose on chest." X1 Influences down the rooftop to the sideline checkpoint.
JAM - when 2 picks up their dribble JAM, smother and trace the ball with both hands (without fouling!)
Drill Rotation: 2 passes to next player in line (3). 2 then moves quickly into an on-ball defensive positin on 3. X1 goes to end of line. Conduct drill using both sides of the court.
Wing Pass Denial
Same as Phase 1 except when 2 passes to 3, X1 jumps to the ball and takes a deny stance. against 2.
X1 has hand and foot in the passing lane, feet in line with the rim with split vision with chin on shoulder.
If 2 cuts to the basket, X1 maintains deny stance preventing the return pass to 2.
Drill Rotation: After X1 denies the return pass to 2, 2 moves into BALL defensive position on 3. X1 goes to end of line. Conduct the drill using both sides of the court
Same as phases 1 & 2 except the 3 passes the ball back to 2 and X1 goes into live 1-on-1 play against 2.
X1 assumes BALL stance with both hands up forcing 2 towards baseline checkpoint.
X1 must keep to on the sideline and prevent any dribble penetration to the middle of the court.
If 2 picks up their dribble, JAM, smother and trace.
If 2 shoots, contest and box out.
2 may pass ball back to 3 at any time. In which case, X1 jumps to deny.
If/when shot is made or X1 gains possession of the ball, 2 rotates to defense on 3. X1 goes to the end of the line. conduct drill on both sides of the floor.
