Defender X1 is on the foul line, other defenders are in a line under the basket. When the ball is passed to a coach on either wing, X1 closes out.

When the ball is skipped to the other wing, X2 closes out and X1 drops to a help position.

X3 closes out on the next skip pass, X2 drops to a help position, and X1 goes off. Continue.

(Variation)

- reverse the ball through the point, defenders deny or gap with the ball at the top
- use two lines of defenders
- coaches pass back and forth from the wing to the point, so the off-ball defender is one pass from the ball, not two.

See Defending - Continuous closeouts, Izzo jump to the ball.
