Basketball Systems, Skills & Drills

3s or wide-open layups


American Basketball Quarterly, 2006Q1
Three or more teams of 3 or 4 players. The only way to score is a 3-point shot or uncontested layup, and every pass must be caught outside the 3-point line. Attackers start outside the 3-point arc, defenders on the baseline, they close out on a pass from coach to an attacker. Attackers make-it, take-it against new defenders, or go off on a stop. Play for 5 minutes or to X points, with 2- and 3-point baskets.

(Variation - more reward for attacking the basket, e.g., 1 point for any made basket)
See Attack/Defend - 3 on 3 kick-out.
