This is one of my favorite drills, because it can be used for your motion offense and defense at the same time. It improves all of your defensive and offensive fundamentals. The defense faces game-like situations, while the offense utilizes offensive fundamentals to score.
These are some other sample situations. I'm sure you can come up with more.
- Designated screen - All screens are down screens. All screens are ball screens. And so on.
- Designated cut - After a pass, all cuts are basket cuts.
- Designated shooter - Pick a player and all screens are set for this particular player and only this player shoots.
- No dribble - Offense can not utilize the dribble to score.
- Lay up only in the first 5 passes.
- Two ball reversals before an attempted dribble penetration.
- Ball must touch post before a jump shot.
- Ball must touch the post twice before a 3-point shot.
- All 3's must come on a pass from the post.
