Tom Crean

They don't to drills, they do game-like actions.

3 will pass three times to 5 (get balls to 3), 5 makes four plays then goes off.
 
See Shooting - Mike Procopio post-perimeter.

a)

3 passes inside to 5, who takes a hard dribble middle (go into coach's chest), he can't turn the corner, swings it to 1 who finds an open spot, 1 swings it to 2 in the corner for a three.

Post with two big "mitts" (hands).

Coach inside has a blocking pad.

b)

3 passes to 5, who dribbles and swings it to 1 for a shot.

c)

3 passes and basket cuts baseline side for a layup (go cut).

Get your man leaning on the go cut (fake opposite).
 
In a game, 3 would run a go cut for a layup (on air time) if 5 has both feet outside the lane, otherwise run a split.

d)

6 dribbles down into working position, 5 runs out to pick and roll, feet parallel to the sideline, 6 explodes off the screen heading to the nail and bounce passes to 5 for a dunk or layup, front of the rim (cut in front of coach, take out the nearest defender on the way to the rim, roll in front of whoever is in your way, take the help out of the play).

4 is the next post player, 6 will make the first three passes to 4.

Rotate 3 to 1, 1 to 2, 2 to the end of the passing line.
