This drill is a bit of variation on the normal 3-man weave to 2-on-1 drill. In the normal weave to 2-on-1, it is usually a 3-man weave up the court and a 2-on-1 coming back … with the shooter sprinting back as the defender.
This variation speeds things up a little bit more, making it more challenging for the defender to get in position and to defend the offense from scoring.
Purpose: To work on transition defense from a disadvantage situation. Also helps develop offensive transition fundamentals, communication skills, and conditioning.
Drill: 3 lines along a baseline, basketball in middle line. The first three players begin a 3-man weave up the court. When player O1 makes his second pass, he will sprint upcourt to play defense against the other two players and attempt to stop them from scoring.
After defender secures basketball or offense scores, players step off the court and next group begins. Rotate lines so different players begin in the middle line each time.
