This a very good closeout and conditioning drill. The defender is working on 3 phases:
Getting into help
Stunting the ball
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.

2 dribble pull-up, screen n' roll, pick n' pop, combination move. 1 will attack the screen using about 2 dribbles into a shot. After 5 sets the screen he/she will pop to the short corner for a jump shot.
Moves on the Move
In order to break down a defender on the move, we encourage all players to develop a go-to move and counter move. Consider the following points as well:
1. Maintain a speed of 80 mph (80%).
2. Attack the defense right between their eyes. Go right at them!
3. Make your move a stride or two away and attack the defender’s outside shoulder at 100 mph (full speed).
4. Finally, close the gap once you get by them.
5. Be sure to practice these moves on both sides of the floor!!!
Here is a progression to my last post call "Go Gets". This drill adds in verbal or non-verbal communication forcing the players to be shot ready before catching the ball and have to react quickly within sustaining the correct habits. This also adds different actions working on passing and re-spacing on kick outs into different actions. It's a great way to have fun and challenge your players through just playing basketball (pass, move, drive, finish, shoot).

Great for group workouts forcing the players involved to communicate. Instead of just dictating who is shooting & passing, the ball-handler is forced to make a decision based off their teammates communication. Everyone involved in the drill is held accountable through every detail. The ball-handler has to come off with pace and use their eyes to see what's in front of them and their teammate before making a decision. The ball-handler's teammate has to be vocal and be shot ready.
The drill will only go as smooth as the players communcation and togetherness. It forces them to take ownership as they must do when they get to the season.

- Coach starts with the basketball.
- Once the coach passes to player 1, the drill is live.
- As player 1 starts to attack downhill at the defender player x2, player x3 has to touch one of the cones before getting back into play as the rim protector.
- The player on offense is encouraged to attack opposite the side player x3 goes.
- Players rotate a spot up if player 1 does not score.
- x2 goes to offense, x3 goes to primary defender, player 1 goes to help defender.
- First player to score 3 points wins.
The progression of drills is really effective in this Boston College "Fast Break Concepts" video created by Coach Chris Oliver of @BballImmersion. The 4v4 Transition Drill that begins at about the 7:00 mark was one that I thought was particularly useful. The Offense starts with a slight 4 v 2 advantage and seeks to make a pitch ahead pass for a score. Whether the offense misses or makes, the defense will then take the ball back up the court 4v4.
