Basketball Systems, Skills & Drills

Duke high ballscreens

Coach K

The point guard should come off the screen at a 45 degree angle (not too low, can't get a head of steam to turn the corner). A coach in the lane has a blocking pad. Do each shot left-to-right, then right-to-left.


- an extended lay-up (floater) from 7-8 feet, soft off the glass (a big defender comes to help)
- repeat going right to left
- on a hard show by the xscreener (another coach), make a step-back dribble, turn the corner for a pull-up shot if the xscreener retreats (string him out, make him retreat or double team)
- shoot from behind the screen if xdribbler goes under the screen (the screener should roll and wipe him out).
