One of my favorite [tag]basketball practice drills[/tag] is the “11 man drill”.Â It combines the three man fast break vs a 2 man “I” defense, competitive rebounding and the outlet pass.
This [tag]basketball drill[/tag] starts with three offensive players across the right foul line, a two man tandem on defense in the right and left lane areas and the remaining four players positioned one each at the intersection of the side line and the foul line extended.
Start with the 3 offensive players advancing the ball and trying to score against the 2 man defensive tandem. Emphasis is on getting the [tag]basketball[/tag] to the middle and stopping the ball.
When a shot goes up the rebounder outlets the ball to the players at the foul line extended and becomes the third man in the next group of three on offense going from left to right If the first group scored, the scorer stays on offense and becomes the third man going left after inbounding the ball to the wing. The two remaining offensive players from the first group become the next defensive tandem on the left end and the other players fill the wing spots. The drill continues back and forthÂ continuously.
(For variation, or if you don’t have eleven men, you can do 2 on 1 fast breaks using a similar set-up.) Great fun conditioner for [tag]basketball practice[/tag] & teaching vehicle.
