Shooting
Dribble-drive


sketch
1
Dribble-drive shooting, start 2-on-0 with different player positions. Players rotate one spot, shoot (or drive for a layup), go off. In some cases speed up the drill by having two players at the shooting position (shown). Optionally perimeter players do not rotate to the low-post position, bigs rotate in from behind the baseline.

- 2-on-0 (
1-2, 1-3, 1-4, 1-5)
- 3-on-0 (1-2-4, 1-3-4, 1-2-3, 1-2-5, 1-3-5, 1-4-5)
- 4-on-0
- 5-on-0

See Offence - Dribble-drive basics.

1) 2-on-0

Use both sides of the floor for a) and b).

a) 1-2 series

- 1 drives drop 2, 1-2 backcut or kickup (loop)

- drop 2 kickup, throwback to 1 in the corner, 2 cuts through
 
- 1 drives middle to drag 3 (in the lane), skip pass to 2 dragging up
 
- 2 elevates for a pass, 1 cuts through, 2 can attack middle or baseline (1-2 quick, shown).

See 1-2-5 series, Layups - Vance Walberg drop, Drop and drag, Blast cuts, Shooting - Calipari two-ball.up

b) 1-3 series

- 1 drives drop 3, 1-3 backcut, kickup, kickup-throwback

- 1 drives to drag 2 (or drop 2 - Calipari), skip pass to 3 (shown).

Olesen - after making a pass from the drag zone the passer must make a read, usually hesitating under the hoop. If 3 drives middle, 1 cuts behind to the 3-corner; if 3 enters the ball to the post, 1 would cut to the opposite side.

- quick-fist.

Mads Olesen - quick-replace fist.


Calipari - if 2 backcuts and clears, 5 ducks in, look for a give and go with 1.

Petitgoue - 5 moves up to the weakside elbow if he sees a backdoor cut by 2.

Matt Bollant - if 1 jump stops at the elbow and 2 is not open, 5 makes a hard flash to the weakside elbow.

Olesen - 1's first look is a backdoor for 2. 5 takes one step up the lane getting ready to clear out if 2 back cuts (if X5 sinks in to take away the back cut, 5 can duck in hard). If 2 does not get a pass, he goes out to the 3-corner, 5 now steps hard high, 1 hits 5, does a give and go cut, if that is not open, you have a clear out for 5.
 
Walberg - 5 starts to tee up then dives to the ballside post if he sees a kickup coming, opening up a middle drive for 2.
