Point Guard
Sprint to half court…ball side
Attack the dribble by half court
Slow the ball down
Get the ball under control
Push to sideline without giving ground

2 Guard
Sprint to elbow…ball side
Do not give up lay-up
Make them make another pass

1st Big Back
Disrupt route & timing of post
No hands, palms up…bump with chest
Get low and wide
“Thru me” to get into the paint

Forward
Shadow ball as long as his man hasn’t come down the floor

Last Big Back
Weakside elbow protecting against skip pass & shot

“You win transition on the first three steps…take first three steps without any concern for vision.”
