TWO DEFENSIVE DRILLS FROM MURRAY ARNOLD

Two teaching techniques that Murray Arnold "thought were awesome":

Emphasis on defensive transition. Opened every practice with the same drill. Five-on-four disadvantage at one end, twelve seconds on shot clock.
·Even if they score they take it out of the net and run.
·Don’t take the ball out of bounds during a defensive transition drill (it slows things down).

Four-on-four basketball:
·The game can be taught much better with four-on-four.
·Practice defensive transition and stopping penetration.
·During the preseason, they have a four-on-four competition with rules and a scoring system. Trophies are given to the winners at the team banquet.
