Basketball Play - 2v2 Choke

2v2 Choke

Randy Sherman 01/25/2019

2v2 Choke is a #PackLine Drill to teach team post defense. "Choking the post" by the guard and "walling up" by the post defender combine in an effort to get the ball out of the post box. By choking the guard reduces the space the post has to make a move. See video below for game application of this drll ft. the Virginia Cavaliers (NCAA).

NAIL ISO is a concept stemming from the NAIL entry of X-Action. If the nail player (who can be anybody; does not have to be your Center) does not deliver either handoff from X-Action, face up and look to go 1v1 with the cutting and filling ongoing. Get the complete X-Action Playbook! See More

3v3 On-To-Off

Randy Sherman 01/10/2019

In 3v3 On-To-Off the defense is working on moving on airtime of the pass. Players must move on and off the ball to pressure the ball and shrink gaps with urgency. When all three offensive players have touched the ball once the drill is 3v3 live.
