2 on 1 Cone Drill

  1. Place a cone in the middle of the floor in the 3-point line and the center circle. Place two other cones on each of the sidelines even with the cone in the middle of the floor.
  2. Line up three players on the baseline even with each cone. One of the players on either sideline should have a basketball. The two players on the sidelines are on offense, and the player in the middle of the floor is on defense.
  3. On a coaches signal, all three players should sprint around the cones and the player with the basketball should be dribbling. It is a live 2 on 1 from this point.
        • The defense’s objective is to get the offense to make two or more passes.
        • The offense MUST get a lay-up.
        • Rotate lines in from left to right (Offense->Defense->Offense)

Triangle Fast Break Build Up 4 on 4

Following drill was a part of a skill packet we mailed out to coaches when I was at the University of Florida.

Previously I have posted phase 1 and 2 of the build up with the 2-on-12-on-2, and 3-on-3.

  1. Start with two offensive players on each of the low blocks and the other two offensive players in each of the corners.
  2. Defensively, begin with a defender at the free-throw line, one under the rim, and the other two in opposite corners.
  3. Begin the drill once again with a coach passing the ball to one of the two offensive layers on each of the low blocks. The two wing players should sprint the floor in their lanes. Generally, one of them is a front-court player and should sprint through to the low block.
  4. Defensively the same rules apply as the 3-on-3 drill. Sprint back as hard as you can, getting match up through communication.

Triangle Fast Break Build Up 3 on 3

Following drill was a part of a skill packet we mailed out to coaches when I was at the University of Florida.

Previously I have posted phase 1 and 2 of the build up with the 2-on-1 and 2-on-2.

  1. Start the drill this time with two offensive players on each of the low blocks and the 3rd offensive player in one of the two corners.
  2. Defensively start with one defender at the free-throw line, one defender under the rim, and a third defender in the opposite corner of the offensive player.
  3. Begin the drill the same way as the previous two with a coach passing to one of the two offensive players on the low blocks.
  4. Once the ball is passed, the two offensive players without the ball must remain wide so that the player with the ball can take the middle of the floor, create and make a play.
  5. Defensively, just like in 2-on-2, you’re trying to sprint to the inside track of the two offensive players on the wings.

OFFENSIVELY: Spacing is key. It is extremely important that the two players on the wing remain wide so the player with the ball can attack.

DEFENSIVELY: Communication is once again the key. While sprinting back down the floor, players must talk so they get matched up correctly.
