On Offense, be Hard to Guard. Drill teaches players to cut, move and spread the floor to assure clean passing lanes, open shots and ball movement to break down defenses. Also teaches defenses to steal, rotate and stay with there man.
5 on 5 Offense vs Defense. Set up a 1-2-2 offense.
Only One point guard can dribble and only from above foul line end side line to side line.
Team must make 10 passes in a row with all offensive players touching the ball at least once and cannot hold the ball more than 3 seconds.
10 completions awards the offense 1 pt. Any steal or jump ball awards the defense 1 point.
You can have defense play man or zone.
Instruct offensive players to cut hard, back door, set screens, pivot, proteect ball, use eye,head,pass fakes. Instruct defensive players to guard closely, anticipate, rotate, switch, help. Any fouls results in an awarded ppoint to the other team. This is an excellent aerobic workout for BOTH squads.
A good offensive squad can be made to work harder by going 5 vs 6 def or 3 v 4 def. A weak defensive squad should play one man short. In that case, any tipped ball or pass can garner the defense a point.
Another variation is 5 passes before shooting. Off gets 2 pts for basket,
def gets 1 pt for rebounding.
