9 players setup along the baseline, 5 on offense 4 on defense. (An offensive player with the ball) The point guard of the defensive 4 starts at the half-line.


When the coach blows the whistle, all nine players sprints to the opposite basket with the ball as if on a fast break. The defense must try to stop the offense from scoring. The defensive point guard attacks the ball causing the ball-handler to go sideways or retreat. If the offense scores the ball they retain the ball and the drill starts from the opposite end.

Number of Players:



Emphasize the defensive player at the half-line causes the ball to go sideways so to allow his teammates to get back.

Emphasize not trying to pickup players in transition.




Conditioning, defensive and offensive transition
