This is a drill mainly for post players, but I guess guards could benefit also.
Three players are on the court while the other players form a line under the basket. One of the players is the offensive player and the other two are the defenders.
The offensive player's job is to score the ball around the basket using the most appropriate hand. He cannot dribble or travel. He continuously goes after the ball (make or miss) and puts it back up.
The defensive players' job is to constantly 'chest' the offensive player with both of their arms straight up in the air. They shouldn't 'chest' the offensive player aggressively, but should be trying to make constant contact with the offensive player, making it hard for him to score and get the ball. They should NOT intentinally foul the offensive player.
The offensive player tries to score while the defensive players are 'chesting' him. Once he has scored 5 times he goes to the end of the line, one of the defenders becomes the offensive player, and the first player in line becomes a new defensive player.
The action shouldn't stop during the rotation, it should be a continuous drill.
Probably best used with 4 or 5 players to prevent standing in line.
Let the defensive players foul now. The coach must watch this though to keep it from getting too rough.
