– Player 1 starts with the ball at the free throw line.
– Player 2 starts parallel with player 1 spaced out free throw line extended.
– The drill is initiated with player 1 passing the ball to coach.
– Once the ball is passed to coach, player 1 is sprinting below the cone to try and run player 2 off the 3 point line preventing them from a rhythm 3.
– As the ball is passed, player 2 is drifting to the corner being shot ready.
– The ONLY shot the player can shoot is a catch & shoot 3
– If the player makes the shot, they stay on offense.
– First player to make 4 3’s wins.
Editor’s Note from Brian: In order to keep players from practicing taking bad shots, you could give a point for a shot turned down that is not a good shot because it is challenged. No point awarded for turning down a shot that the player should take. Then, make the made shots worth 2 (if player is on or inside the line) or 3.
– Play with no shot fake and just has to be a rhythm catch & shoot 3.
– Play with shot fake w/ no dribble.
– Play with shot fake w/ side step using 1 dribble.
– Play with 1 dribble to score vs. the defender running the shooter off the line.
Same rules apply putting the players in a different position and situation. Frames 2 & 3 are added ways to play this small sided game.
