Continuous dribble-drive kickbacks and kickups, rotating in new players. Use both baskets if available.

See Tactics - Matt Bollant dribble-drive, Offences - Dribble-drive basics, Dribble-drive progression.

1) 3 on 0

a) Kickback-kickup

1-2-4, extra players behind 4. Start with a 1-4 kickback, 1 goes off, 3 comes on.

Kentucky - 1 pitches it back when 4 gets even with him.

Variation - start with a 1-2 kickup (then 2-4 kickback).

2
4-2 kickup.

4 jumps stops, or stride stops (Calipari).
 
Peter Maunder - the drop zone is as high as possible. 2 is patient, goes when 4 picks up the ball. 5 would come up to the other elbow.

sketch
3
2-3 kickback, 2 goes off, 5 comes on.

Kentucky - 3 meets 2 at the split line.
 
Bollant - 3 kicks back when 2 gets to the elbow (and 5 relocates).

sketch
4
3-4 kickup.

Continue with a 4-5 kickback, 4 goes off.

Rotation - get a kickback, make a kickup, get a kickup, make a kickback, go off.

Option - start with two players in the corner, see below (3 would go behind the second player).

Change sides (4-1 kickback, 1-3 kickup).

b) Kickup-kickup

Extra players are behind 2 and 3 in the corners. Start with a 1-3 (or 1-2) kickup, 1 goes off, 4 comes on.

sketch

3-2 kickup, 3 goes off, 5 comes on.

Continue with a 2-4 kickup.

2 kicks up when 3 gets to the lane line (Kentucky) or the middle (Calipari), or stops (Bollant, Olesen).

See Shooting - Dribble-drive 3 on 0 (1-3 kickup to drop 2,

2) 4 on 0

Players 1-2-3-4, extra players behind 2 and 3. Each dribbler will make a kickup or kickback, go off when you make a kickup.

To start, 1 can make a 1-2 kickup, 1-4 kickback, or 1-3 kickup. On a 1-3 kickup, 1 goes off, 6 comes on, 4 kicks back and replaces 1.

sketch

3 can make a 3-4 kickback (shown) or 3-2 kickup. Here 3 goes off and 5 comes on.

Options

- 3 replaces 4 if 2 is patient and stays in the corner
- 3 always replaces 4 on a kickback.

Matt Bollant - any time you throw it to the 4-man you become the 4-man.

John Calipari - as a general rule, replace whoever you pass it to.

Jerry Petitgoue - if 3 passes to 4 (behind him) he clears to the corner, 2 dragged (kicked) up on 3's drive.

4 makes a kickup to 5 and goes off.

6 can make a kickback (shown) or kickup, here 5 stays in the corner so 6 replaces 2.

Continue with a 2-1 kickup.
 
Progression - add more options.
 
 
a) Post-ups (5 on 5)
 
- on a kickup, drive middle or throw it back to the corner and cut through (see Kickup-throwback, also 4 on 0 shooting 1-2 kickup to 2-1 throwback to 1-3 kickback)
- on a kickback, attack downhill into a kickup or skip pass (see Skip pass)
 
b) Swing-quick passing
 
- Swing-quick-kickback (continuous)
 
Kickbacks set up swing and quick pass options (see Creating gaps, Calipari - second drives).
 
c) Entries
 
Start with a dribble-drive entry (e.g. kickback, swing, quick, push).
 
See Tactics - Dribble-drive quick-swing, Fast break - Dribble-drive 5 on 0 (Entries), Quick hitters - Dribble-drive 243-143.up
