Set up: An offensive line beyond the 3-point line and a defensive line on the opposite side of the lane near the baseline.
Movement: The defensive player will roll the ball out to the offensive player. The defender then sprints ¾ of the way out towards the offense. The defender then chops feet and drops down into a good defensive stance. The defender can close with one hand high and one low or with both hands high. This drill can also be played “live” – offense vs defense after initial closeout.
Key Focus Points: Proper closeout angle between offensive player and basket.
