Drill is designed to teach defensive man on ball to steer to outside. It also designed to teach man below ball to help and recover to shooter. The drill can also be used to deny reversal pass when ball is in corner.
Set up a stationary 3pt. shooter in the corner. Put a defensive man on this shooter. Give the ball to an offensive player at half court, 10-15 feet from the sideline. The offensive player with the ball tries to take his man one-on-one and score. The defensive player must steer the ball to the baseline and the help. The help must help and recover, not giving up the shot.
Four man drill
Bottom defensive man must keep shoulders square to the baseline even while stopping penetration so that he can always see his man. We start this man in the gap below the ball as we really push the ball to the outside. We will give them the non-penetrating pass to the outside. This really lets us concentrate on denying the reversal pass, as we do not offer help over the top. Man on ball at top must steer baseline, as there is no help to the top. If man gets bear over top, I make him do 20 push-ups.
Run the drill same as above, but when the pass is made to the corner have the guard deny the pass back out. Add another X an O at the weak side guard spot and let ball side guard screen away or interchange with weak side guard to work on your method of defending this offensive maneuver.
