1 - AI
High-School Basketball|Half-Court
Basic Isolation. The 1 takes his man 1 on 1 while the rest of the players perform a screen on the side they are on. The 5 will screen for the 3 and 2 will screen for the 4. The 4 will then cut off the screen for a potential pass for a layup if the 1 needs. There is also a kick out man which would be the 3 who could shoot it or drive as well.

High-School Basketball|Drill
Shell drill is a foundational team defense exercise. The objective is to improve defensive communication, team defense spacing and "jumping to the pass".

This variation plays 4v4, where the offense sets up in a 4-out, no post. The offense is not allowed to dribble. On passes to the low-corner, the elbow man will cut through for additional variation.

Emphasize the defense always being in the passing lanes.
