Danny Manning ballscreens

Danny Manning

Defending ballscreens, they will hard hedge, flat hedge, squeeze and go under (bump the screener up), or push it down (blue).

Work on hard hedges with a partner, 5 runs up from the low post to set a ballscreen, X5 yells "pick right", slides out in a straight line to touch a chair, turns and runs back.

X5 should have hands low (outside his knees) to make the ball go towards halfcourt, not foul with his body, and prevent a split.

Move the chair to change the angles, e.g. for a flat hedge.
