Three defenders start in the paint, when coach dribbles from halfcourt, one defender takes the ball, the other two get to gap positions.
Coach passes to a wing, the defence adjusts, the offence passes and dribbles, only the ballhandler can attack inside the arc, with no ballscreens.
See Defending - Dick Bennett 3 on 3 close-out, Scrimmage - 4 on 3.
Coach shoots when satisfied with the defence, everyone rebounds except coach (the safety), on a defensive rebound it's 3-on-2 to the other basket, flip-flop players and repeat.
Progression - 4 on 3.
- an attacker with the ball shoots when coach calls "shot"
- coach can wave through 2 or 3, dribble to a wing, then drive middle or baseline
- 2 on 1 coming back, the shooter defends, other players go off
- 2 on 3 coming back.
