2 on 2 ballscreens, one dribbler goes back and forth, his partner ballscreens. Early in the practice season, hedge and go over the top (over the screen and xscreener). Pressure the ball, force the dribbler into the screen, xscreener jumps straight out (not wide) to show strong help, never loses contact with his man, gets the dribbler to run into him for a charge, change direction, or pick up his dribble. The xdribbler gets small when he hits the screen.
(X1 and X4 alternate defensive roles if switching on the screens. To alternate roles if not switching, 1 can come off the screen, pass to 4 and follow to ballscreen, then 4 does the same)
Tom Izzo 2 on 2 ballscreens
a) jam it - X4 squeezes 4, X1 goes under both (1 is not a good shooter, 4 is a great player)
b) up and over - X4 steps straight up then back, X1 goes under him but over the screen
c) up and under - X4 goes up but maintains contact, X1 goes under the screen (1 is a good shooter but not a handler, he won't turn the corner)
d) trap (they want to get the ball out of 1's hands, stay with him, work to get back on the pass out)
e) feather - X4 soft hedges sideways, X1 goes over the screen, X4 pulls him through then gets back to 4 (worried about 1 turning the corner, also about pick and pop)
f) turn down (black) - 4 can't shoot, X1 doesn't let 1 get to the screen, X4 (a shot-blocker) drops down.
Go four times each.
