Basketball Drill Demonstration


This works on Offensive and defensive Transition.  Offense is accross the baseline and defense is free throw line extended.  Coach passes the ball to a random offensive player. Then Offense gets the ball to a guard and pushes the ball up the court.  At the same time the person guarding the offensive player who got the ball will touch the baseline and get back on defense.  The other Defenders will need to make up for his absence by matching up and communicating.

You can either stop the ball after the posession or you can have the defense bring it back down the court.
