I will have a ball and be toward the wing position, about half-way between the baseline and the FT line extended. I want the player facing me, in ready, bent-knee stance, on good balance, with the arms extended toward the ball, hands anticipating a pass. I will pass in to the post and have them take the ball in to the chest, pressing the ball tight with both hands, elbows pointed out (parallel with the lane line). I emphasize always keeping the eyes on the ball, looking the pass right into their hands, before they attempt any other movement. Well do this several times, until the player is comfortable with the procedure and until I too feel they can do the drill and move on.
The next of the simple basketball plays is the pick and roll. Player A goes near and behind an opponent who is guarding Player B. Player A has a wide, erect stance and is not moving on the point of contact with the opponent defender. Player B dribbles quickly by the pick by almost brushing shoulders with Player A. The dribble should be toward the basket and to a place where Player B can get a makeable shot. After setting the pick, Player A \"rolls\" quickly toward the basket and while facing the basketball. Player A should make an eager hand target and be ready for a pass from Player B. The pick and roll often works because the defense tends to guard Player A or Player B, but not both.
The next segment could be team defense. Select 3 or 4 elements of your defense on whch you would really like to improve. Practice 5 vs. 5 half-court in which you emphasize those elements and keep tally of how often they are done by the defense. It can be a contest between the 2 groups of five to see who plays better defense in terms of stops, turnovers, and defensive rebounds.
