Dr. Dish Drill of The Week

Coach Tony Miller shares a great partner shooting drill to simulate an east-west closeout, similar to what shooter might face playing against a zone defense. Check out the full breakdown in the video below!

Partner Closeout Shooting Tony Miller

Partner Contested Shooting Drill

  • The defender stands at the free throw line in the middle of the lane, while the shooter stands behind the 3P line on the wing.
  • On the Dish’s pass out to the shooter, the defender touches the elbow (opposite the shooter) then runs to closeout to the shooter.
  • On the catch, the shooter must first complete some sort of crossover or between-the-legs dribble before shooting.”
