This is a 3 on 2 continuous drill that emphasizes being able to score in 1 or 2 passes in transition. The drill begins with the following:

  • Four outlet lines, two on each side, at the side hash mark.
  • Two players on defense at each basket.
  • Three players at the half court line start with the ball and attack a side.


  • We only allow one shot, this is optional.
  • Rebounder (Offense and defensive rebound alike) outlets to the nearest line and fills the running lane.
  • 2 of the remaining 4 players remain to play defense, the other two fill open outlet line spots.
  • Outlet man attacks the middle or advances the ball to the opposite wing if possible.



  • Communication on who will take ball and who will take first pass.
  • Avoid giving up the easy layup.


  • Score within 1 or 2 passes, after that the defense would have gotten back.
  • Center man after making a pass to the wing needs to read that if the defense drops they are wide open for a jump shot.
  • Advance the ball as quickly as possible.
  • Attack the rim if the defense does not stop the ball.
  • Keeping spacing to keep the advantage on the defense.
