This competitive drill doubles as both a dribbling and defensive 1-on-1 drill.
It rewards ball handlers for good dribbling habits. Habits like dribbling in straight lines, attacking the defender's hip, and being efficient with the dribble.
It also rewards good defense. If you can keep the ball handler out of the middle of the court and veer them towards the sidelines, you minimize the points earned by the ball handler.
Set up four cones or marks on the floor just before half court. These will act as your gate. The offensive player has 7 seconds to dribble through those marks. Players get 4 points for going through the middle gate, 2 points for side gates, and 1 point for outside gates.
