Basketball 1v1 Roll

Setup

Two lines.  Line A on the baseline just outside the lane.  Line B just outside the three point line.

Instructions

Line A rolls the ball to Line B and closes out defensively.  Line B picks up the ball and begins to try to take the defender 1v1 and score.   Allow play to continue until the offensive player scores, the defender controls the ball or the ball is out of play. 

Variations

Add a player on the wing and make the offensive player make a pass and then receive it back before attacking the basket.  This will encourage good dive cuts and make the offensive player have to work to get the ball as in a game.

Coaching Points

Good attacking basketball from the offensive player.  Players have a tendency to go to their strong hand everytime so encourage players to go left and develop skills.  Encourage good defensive positioning.  Move feet and defend strong.  Rebound!
