International Basketball Analyst for ESPN and former Division I college basketball coach, Fran Fraschilla, believes in building great habits on both the offensive and defensive end of the floor. Watch how he teaches how to defend a down screen in a 4 on 4 setting, and how he tailors the drill to fit the personnel and philosophy of his team.

4 On 4 Shell – Screen Down

Athlete Movements: 4 offensive players are positioned on the elbows and blocks with a defender on each. The offensive player will pass to the player at the opposite elbow and down screen for his teammate on the same side.

Teaching Point:

  • It is important to provide a lane for your defensive teammate to get through the screen
