Coach Jo Jo Cadray works on Help Defense leading these players through four close out drills at the Auburn Basketball Camp. The drills focus on mechanical skills as well as communication. Fast-paced and great for young athletes.
Coach begins this basketball skills series with a lesson on Help Defense. Communication is a large part of this lesson. This basketball drill is a continuous drill that uses a lot of chatter and energy as players hone their skills.
The next drill for Help Defense shows players how to stay in help position while closing out while moving with the action.
Now Coach goes into Help Defense when your one pass away from the close out. This drill involves two defensive players on different sides of the court with the ball coming down the middle. It's helping quick and getting back to guard.
This Help Defense drill demonstrates the Skip Pass close out. The help is a little different with this different angle because the close out is a little different. Communication is still a large part of the learning in this segment.
