• Shell Drill - Phase 3

  • Purpose

    Stresses important defensive concepts.

  • Drill Setup

    Four defenders against four offensive players.

  • How It Works

    Phase 3 – Down Screen: The offense only passes guard to guard at the top. The passer then goes and screens for the wing player. The defender slips the screen (goes between the screen and his teammate defender) to continue guarding his man.
