Defending the 1v0

“Wolf” – Chase the dribbler from behind

Sprint back. “You are never too late on defense.”
Attempt to block the shot low with the near hand
Rebound – do not go past the backboard!
Catching the dribbler from behind to block or change a shot is momentum changing play!

1v1 WOLF

Offensive player (BLUE1) starts in outlet box.

Defensive player (BLACK1) is out of bounds with ball on baseline. He/she is the “wolf”

Defense inbounds to offense and begins to chase the offensive player. Offense wants to finish with an extended layup if defense is trailing or an outside-inside stride stop if defense gets on inside hip.

Defense tries to block the shot low using the near hand. Defense avoids over-pursuing. DO NOT GO PAST THE BACKBOARD! Rebound any missed shot!

If the defense is able to catch up and get in front of the offense, it becomes 1v1 Live.
