Purpose: To develop good individual defensive techniques and fundamentals.
Drill: 2 offensive players and 2 defensive players. The basketball is at the top with coach.
The offensive players move and cut without setting screens, while the defenders work at keeping vision of both his man and the basketball. Work at staying ‘up the line’ on defense.
The coach can pass when he/she sees fit to do so.
In this drill, there is no need to attempt to score, but it can be added later on if desired.
