Shooting
Dribble-drive


sketch
1
Shooting drills for dribble-drive motion, starting from 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.

Ian MacKinnon - 1 starts in the backcourt and gets a pass on the run from a coach in the jump circle, makes a hesitation or inside-out move. Use both baskets, with two coaches, see Shooting - 4 on 0 dribble-drive.

See Offence -
Dribble-drive basics.
