WOLF DRILL: Defensive Intensity & Toughness
The WOLF DRILL is a defensive drill that allows you to work on a variety of defensive skills in one rep: closeouts, on the ball defense, blocking out and taking a charge.
Three offensive players align around the perimeter, one at the top of the key and 2 and 3 on the wings. One defender starts with a basketball and under the basket.
X1 rolls the ball out to 1. X1 will execute a closeout. They play one-on-one. 1 gets three dribbles to try and score.
As soon as X1 and 1 complete their part of the drill, the ball is immediately passed out to 2. X1 will now sprint to 2 and execute a closeout. 2 will immediately catch and shoot. X1 must box out 2 after the shot. Both players attempt to get the rebound.
If 2 makes the shot X1 immediately passes the ball to 3. If 2 misses and 1 gets the rebound they will immediately pass to 3. If 2 gets and offensive rebound, they play until 2 scores or X1 gets a rebound or turnover.
On the catch 3 will immediately attack the basket off the dribble to attempt to score on a layup. Meanwhile X1 is sprinting over to set up to take a charge outside the lane (if possible).
Players rotate 1 to 2. 2 to 3. 3 to defender.
