I like skill improvement basketball drills that are competitive and or put pressure on our players while being drills we can use either during practices or during individual workouts.
I also like having many different drills to work on closing out. I feel that it is such an important part of man to man defense and needs to be drilled daily. I also feel that if you use the same drill each day, it loses effectiveness, so it is good to have a variety of drills to work on the skill of closing out.

I personally like the idea of scoring by getting a defensive stop. That player then stays on defense and has another chance to earn a stop point. No points awarded on offense in the drill.
As with everything I send out, whether you like the drill or not, agree or disagree, I hope it gives you food for thought and inspires you to think about your basketball program and what you can do to improve.
