The Drill, August 2006

a)
 
Dribble hard, turn the corner to speed into a layup (high jump, not long jump). Go right and left.
 
Fabian McKenzie - (cones are foul-line extended near the 3-point line), dribble in straight lines, avoid rounding off cuts, dribble back up the middle, alternate sides.
 
(Progressions, e.g. underhand layups, reverse, one-hand pickup, inside-hand, goofy foot, Euro-step, pro hop, slice)
 
Billy Donovan - make a combo move at a cone out top then one dribble outside a second cone (near the elbow) to the rim.
 
See Dribbling - Altizer moves-counters.

b)
 
Make a crossover dribble at the cone, driving for a two-foot power or inside-hand layup.
 
McKenzie - make a crossover, between-the-legs or behind-the-back move at the cone, push the ball hard to the opposite side for a layup or baby hook.
 
(Progressions, e.g. baby hook, half reverse, spin pullback, Rondo move, pro hop, slice, floater, Euro-step)
