About This Play/Drill

This a very good closeout and conditioning drill. The defender is working on 3 phases:

  1. Getting into help
  2. Stunting the ball
  3. Moving on the pass and closing out correctly on the offensive player

The ball becomes live and the offensive player can either shoot or drive.

  • Basketball Play - 1v1 Closeout Drill

The coach with ball at the top of the key will pass to the wing and the defense should jump to the help position on the pass.

Then the coach feeds the post post and on the dribble the defense stunts to dig the ball.

The post coach then passes the ball out to the wing to an offensive player, who should be ready to catch an attack. The defense closes out to the offense.

On the catch it becomes live 1v1.
