Defending
Husky closeouts

Mike Neighbors

Three defenders start in the paint, when coach dribbles from halfcourt, one defender takes the ball, the other two get to gap positions.

Coach passes to a wing, the defence adjusts, the offence passes and dribbles, only the ballhandler can attack inside the arc, with no ballscreens.

See Defending - Dick Bennett 3 on 3 close-out, Scrimmage - 4 on 3.

Coach shoots when satisfied with the defence, everyone rebounds except coach (the safety), on a defensive rebound it's 3-on-2 to the other basket, flip-flop players and repeat.

Progression - 4 on 3.

(Variations)
 
- an attacker with the ball shoots when coach calls "shot"
- 2 on 1 coming back, the shooter defends, other players go off.
 
Basketball WA - 3 plus coach v 4 - only coach can shoot the ball, play to a stop or score then 4 on 3 to the other basket and 3 on 4 coming back.

See Rebounding - Box out to 3 on 2, Transition - Tar Heels box-out 3 on 2 on 1, Defending - Procopio 3 on 3 shrink.up
