Gonzaga Trapping Drill

You have probably seen this or a similar drill before, but I like the idea of setting the 40 second time limit and the defense having to tip turn the offense over 4 times with 4 basketballs in that time span.

The video is from a Gonzaga Practice.

If you are facing a pressing team, you could tweak the scoring system and make it an offensive emphasis drill.

Editor’s Note from Brian:

I understand that most teams don’t have two 7 footers who can throw the ball over the trap.

Also, I know that the offense seems disinterested.

The purpose is not to evaluate this practice session. The idea behind the post is for you to get a couple of ideas to improve upon this drill and use it or that might make your current trapping/pressure handling drills better.
