1 on 1 with passers
On each pass to 2 and 3, defender X1 on 1 must jump to the ball (a position to help on dribble penetration by the wing yet recover on a pass back to his check). X1 closes out on each pass to 1.
In a pack defence, X1 jumps to a gap position at an elbow (shown).
On coach's signal, 1 passes and tries to cut to the basket for a give and go. X1 must jump to the ball, make the cutter go behind him, and deny the pass (open or closed to the ball).
John Calipari - 1-2 and 2-1 passes, 1-3 and 3-1 passes then live, X1 tries to deflect 1's passes. Lunge and keep your hands up. (It's live when 1 gets the ball, X1 closes out)
Island closeouts - 3 vacates the weakside wing, 1 clears weakside from the post, 2 makes a skip pass to 1, X1 closes out (from a help position).
- live 1 on 1
- have 1 shoot, X1 hits and gets the ball
- X1 must make a stop to rotate out.
