Player A and player B stand behind the base line on each side of basket. Coach stands in corner of court (or to the side).


Coach rolls the ball towards center court slowly, waits a few seconds (usually until the ball passes 3 pt. line - depending on how much conditioning is needed) and yells go. Both players sprint to get the ball. First player to the ball becomes offender (say A), other player (B) becomes defender. A must dribble back towards the basket which he came from and B must prevent an easy lay-up by forcing A to one side of the basket.

Number of Players:

2 (or more) + coach + 1 ball


First explain that if a player notices that his opponent is faster and will obviously reach the ball first, he should back off and wait for him on the way back.

Also tell the players that 90% of all b-ball players are right-handed dribblers and will most likely be reluctant to dribble with their left. Tell the defenders to 'cheat' and force the dribbler to the left.
