sketch

Bill Pangos

1 passes to 2 and closes out, 2 shoots, 1 boxes out, both players rebound a miss, play to a stop or score.

1 goes to the end of the line he passed to, 2 is the next defender, he passes to 3 and closes out, 3 shoots.

Variations

- live on the pass, the attacker can shoot or drive
- the defender must make a stop to get out.

See 1 on 1 - Continuous, Rebounding - Partner.

sketch
3
Ian MacKinnon - close out on a skip pass, live 1 on 1, limited dribbles, defender 2 stays on a score and 3 goes behind 1, 2 goes off on a stop and is replaced by attacker 3, 4 makes the next skip pass to 5, 2 or 3 will close out.
 
Variations

- the attacker gets one point for getting into the paint with his strong hand
- get two points for any made basket, one point for a shot off the rim on the skip pass
- use only three players, alternate possessions, rotate attacker to defender, here 5 would be the next attacker off a skip pass from 2, 3 defends
- for a shooting drill, 3 shoots, 2 contests the shot and rebounds, 3 is the next defender, 5 shoots.

See Defending - Continuous close-outs, UConn 1 on 1 stops, 1 on 1 wing, Weakside 1 on 1, 1 on 1 - Off skip pass.

Progression - smash a flash, see Defending - Pasquali denial (weakside cuts).
