This is a drill that teaches how to run and defend the fast break. A good 3 on 2, 2 on 1 fast break drill. Shooting, rebounding, making the outlet pass, filling the lanes, decision making, defending the break, and getting back on defense.


Place 2 defenders at the far basket, one at the foul line, the other in the middle/lower part of the lane. We'll call these players 4 and 5.

Place 2 rebounders at the other end of the court near the low blocks. (Players 1 and 2.)Place the shooter at the top of the key (Player 3). Form a rebounding line under the basket out of bounds and a shooting line out of bounds at the foul line extended. One of the rebounders (1 or 2) bounce passes to the shooter (3) who cuts in and jump stops at the foul line and shoots. The rebounder (1 or 2) who gets the ball outlets to the shooter (3). The shooter (3) takes the ball to the middle of the floor and the rebounders (1 and 2) fill the lanes for a 3 on 2 fast break to the other end of the court where players 4 and 5 will defend.

Play continues until a basket is made or one of the defenders (4 or 5) gets the ball. After a made basket or a defender (4 or 5) gets the ball, the defenders (4 and 5) break to the other basket, the original shooter (3) has to get back to be the defender of the 2 on 1 break that players 4 and 5 are running to the other end of the court. Players 1 and 2 stay to become the defenders for the next 3 on 2 break.

Number of Players:



With the 3 on 2, play no out of bounds. With the 2 on 1, allow only 1 shot.

Stress a good strong outlet pass, filling the lanes correctly and getting a layup at both ends.

With the 2 on 1 make sure the players spread the defender and make him commit.

Stress bounce passes.
