Basketball Systems, Skills & Drills

1 on 1
Touch drill


Rick Pitino
5-Star Basketball Drills
Defender X1 passes to attacker 1, closes out, touches 1 on the hip, they play 1-on-1 until a stop, score, or foul (get the ball if fouled). Make-it take-it, rotate positions after a score. One point for a basket, lose one point if you foul, play to 9 points.
Progression - instead of waiting for the defender to touch his hip, the attacker dribbles as soon as he catches the ball.
(Variation - the attacker can shoot or drive on the catch)
