Players partner up. Player1 has a ball and start dribbling from the corner of the court. Player2 is on defense in the correct stance. P1 begins dribbling toward half court using the change of pace dribbling skill (dribble forward hard 2-3 steps, stop, then go again). P2 stays in the perfect stance using quick footwork to stay with the P1. P2 shadows P1 as P1 change of pace dribbles up the sideline. When P1 gets to the half court line, P1 turns and dribbles to the center of the court, heading for the center circle. P2 continues to stay in perfect stance sliding along side of P1 (shadowing P1's movements). When P1 hits the center circle, P1 makes the move to the hoop, going hard for the score. P2 has to deny the score, blockout and rebound.



Number of Players:



Offensive player - dribbles low, develops a solid change of pace move, goes to the hoop hard using best offensive moves

Defensive player - stay down, perfect stance, short steps force the P1 away from lane, force P1 to use weak hand, be aggressive, finish with solid blockout position.
