How the Drill Works: The two outside lines are on offense and the middle line is on defense. The coach passes the basketball to an offensive player and all 3 players sprint up and around the cones and then compete in a 2 on 1 transition situation. Purpose: Allows the offensive players to work on decision making on the fast break and the defender to work on defending at a disadvantage. Setup: One cone in the middle of the court on the three-point line for the defensive line. Two cones on the wings at the 1/3 court line (or half-way between half-court and the three-point line). Three lines of players on the baseline in line with the cones. The coach has one basketball. Instructions: Half-Court 2-on-1 The coach begins the drill by passing to one of the offensive players. As soon as they catch it, all three players sprint up and around the cones. Players now compete in a live 2 on 1 situation. The drill doesnât stop until either a made basketball or the defender gets possession of the basketball from a rebound or steal. Players then pass the basketball back to the coach and join a different line. Variations: Distance of Cones - You can adjust the distance of the cones to be further away or closer to the basket. 3 on 2 Transition - Instead of 2 on 1, you can add an extra two cones and make it a 3 on 2 transition.
Coaching Points: The offensive players must be attacking fast. Remind them that itâs a fast-break situation. Offensive players should keep it simple. If the defender doesnât step into your lane, score. If they do, pass. The defender must protect the rim and try and cause confusion for the ball-handler. Correct spacing is most important for the offensive team! Source: https://www.basketballforcoaches.com/layup-drills/
