6-cycle dribble-drive


sketch
1
Rehearse and execute dribble-drive motion at speed, take 6 layups in 6 fullcourt trips, always scoring (putback any miss), 4 inbounds. Start the first trip with a made basket at the other end. Each player shoots in the first 5 trips, there are multiple shooter options on the last trip. The trips are

1) 1 racks it
2) 1-4 kickback
3) 1-2 quick (basket cut), 2-3 kickback
4) 1-4-3-5 in the post
5) 1-3 kickup, 3-2 backdoor
6) 1-4 brush cut, 4-2 kickup, 2-3 backdoor.

For ease of reference, all are shown going upcourt in the diagrams, not alternating up and back.

Progressions
- break on misses (no putbacks)
- use a ballscreen series.

3) 1-2 quick

2 elevates for a pass, 1 basket cuts and clears weakside.

Variation - 2 makes a return pass to 1 (give and go).

Calipari - they want 2 to drive.

Mads Olesen - 5 looks to screen every time someone cuts under him. If 5 is a dominant post player, it's a good option to have 1 set a screen for him.

2 drives middle for a kickback to 3, who racks it (Calipari).

Variations

- 2 hits 4 kicking back
- 2 racks it on a middle or baseline drive
- 2 drives baseline, hits 4 filling behind, exits.

Marc Hart - 4 has the right side all cleared out to attack the rack.

Calipari - 1 comes out of the corner when 2 gets to the middle of the lane.

Olesen - 1 will stay in his corner then look for drop-zone options on any stop, the kickback to 3 is a great option.

Jerry Petitgoue - they want a baseline drive by 2.

4) 1-4-3-5

1 passes to 4 and corner cuts, 4 passes to 3 and corner cuts weakside, 5 posts.

Option - 1 makes a basket cut (through cut) then exits using 5.

Walberg - if you want to get 5 the ball, swing it from 1 to 4 to 3, 1 and 4 hold.

Calipari - to create a lane for 3, 1 passes to 4 and holds, 4 passes to 3 and basket cuts, 5 relocates, 3 drives baseline.

Olesen - if 5 is dominant and 4 swings the ball, 1 must recognize this and exit weakside on a through cut, anticipating a post pass (4 holds). The first rule to get the ball to a great post player is the middle rule, when 1 passes to 4 (across the middle of the court) he does not cut, 3 comes up for a catch and post entry.

3 drives middle, passes to 5.

Variation - 3 makes a post-entry pass from the wing, or passes to 1 who passes inside.
