Basketball Systems, Skills & Drills

Hurley 4 on 4 on 4

Bob Hurley

Three teams, 4 on 4 on 4 with subs. Defensive options for each team are a diamond, box (play it like a 2-3 zone), triangle and one, and tandem and two (or man to man). Defensively, put quickness on the side teams attack, size opposite.

On a score, the team that was scored on inbounds and runs their press break, the team that scored presses (a 2-2), and keeps pressing if they score again. On a stop, defenders attack the far basket, attackers stay.

Progression - 5 on 5 on 5, play different defences, e.g. 3-2, 1-3-1.
See Scrimmage - 4 on 4 on 4, Bauer 5 on 5 on 5.

Their defensive numbering system is

1) Man (with fist, double fist)
2) 3-2 zone
3) 1-3-1 extended 3/4 court, very aggressive
4) 2-2-1 or 2-1-2 press back to 2-3 zone.

Playing man defence,

- force sideline, baseline
- keep the ball out of the middle
- deny ball reversal
- deny the post.
