Players should get a partner - try to have a forward and a guard in each group.
The first two will attempt to inbound the ball on the baseline.
The other eight players (4 groups of 2) will play defense in the following areas:
2 from the baseline to the foul line extended (denying inbound pass).
2 from the foul line extended to half court.
2 from half court to the foul line extended at the far end of the court.
2 from the foul line extended to the basket at the far end of the court.
Partners attempt to move the ball all the way up the court to score at the opposite basket.
Each group of 2 defenders plays man to man once the ballhandlers reach their area.
Once the ballhandlers leave the previous area, those defenders drop out.
Defenders should look to double team the ball whenever possible.
at least 10
Offense should not dribble when the ball is passed to them unti they look to see if their partner is open.
Player without the ball should cut to receive the ball AHEAD of their partner in the middle of the court whenever possible.
