Basketball Canada

X2 denies the entry pass to and defends any backdoor cut by 2, then forces sideline once the ball is caught, go 1-on-1 to a score or stop, X5 can help if 2 drives the basket.

Rotate attackers, 2 goes behind 7, 1 goes behind 5. X4 defends 4 next, with help from X6. Rotate defenders after several turns.


- X5 is the only help defender, he helps on a drive from both wings
- X2 and X4 are the only defenders, they help each other (X4 defends 4 in a help position when 2 has the ball).
See Defending - 4 on 4 circles (1 on 2).
