Memphis 3-Player Closeout drill which has many different variations. This version is one we used at the University of Michigan-Dearborn. I like it because it emphasizes footwork and fundamentals, and then turns into live play at the end. Tailor it to your defensive philosophy.
Defender x1 starts with the ball and passes to x2. x2 passes to x3, x3 to offensive player 1 as x1 sprints to close out on 1.
x2 and x3 close out on 2 and 3, respectively, as the ball is swung around the perimeter.
On the first pass from 1 to 2, x1 jumps to the ball. On the second pass from 2 to 3, x1 sprints to midline.
The offense reverses the ball again, with defenders allowing the passes and working on positioning.
x3 jumps to ball then sprints to midline, x2 jumps to ball, x1 closes out.
Play live 3-on-3 from here with an emphasis on forcing the dribbler whichever direction your defense dictates.
Use this drill to work on the specific footwork and fundamentals taught in your defensive philosophy.
