Ryerson University head coach, Roy Rana, led Ryerson to a bronze medal at the 2015 CIS National Championship. A big part of Coach Rana’s success is his team’s man-to-man defense, and in this video, you’ll discover a drill that emphasizes the need to keep offensive players away from the paint.
3-on-3 No Paint
Drill Summary: Set up with three offensive players guarded by three defenders around the perimeter. The offense is only allowed to drive and kick, with a maximum of two dribbles. The defense must work to keep the offensive players in front of them, stunting when appropriate and getting in proper help positions. On a shot, players must box out and get the rebound. If the offense gets the rebound, they can try to score again. Rotate offense to defense and defense out.
Keys to the Drill:
1) Keep players out of the paint.
2) Stunt if a player drives to the middle.
3) Get in help position when two passes away.

In this week’s edition of All Access, we visit Durham, North Carolina for a behind-the-scenes look at a Duke men’s basketball practice. Follow along as head coach Mike Krzyzewski leads his squad through a series of 3-on-3 drills. This particular practice session stems from Duke’s 2009-10 National Championship season and features the likes of Kyle Singler, Jon Scheyer, and Nolan Smith.
The team splits up to two different courts. For this first drill, players go 3-on-0 full court off of a make or miss. In each rep, it’s key that the big hustles and runs the length of the floor. On the other end, the goal is to throw it ahead, look for the post, and play off the post.
Keys: Go right to the rim off the transition break. Don’t slow down and set up a play. Get the ball right to the post as quickly as possible.
This time the defense enters. Whichever team gets the initial rebound is on offense. The goal remains exactly the same in regards to getting the ball into the post for a scoring opportunity.
3-on-3 Half Court
Once again, the goal remains the same: Get the ball into the post for a high percentage opportunity. Also, listen in as Coach K offers some key advice pertaining to taking chances in practice: “This is practice right now. Take your left-handed hook, even if you go 0-for-20 today. This is what we practice. You need to come up with these kind of moves.”
