Rebound, closeout, contested shot drill From George Singleton, head boys coach, Hillcrest High School, Simpsonville, South Carolina

This drill involves three very important aspects of the game:

  1. Rebounding
  2. Closeout
  3. Contested shot

DIAGRAM 2: X1 passes to X2. As soon as X1 makes the pass to X2, they go to closeout player X3.

X2 passes to X3. X2 then goes to contest X4.

X3, after receiving a pass from X2, passes to X4 for the shot.
