2) Fullcourt layups
Start from triple threat.
(Variation - start with a drop move, see Shooting - Drop series)

From the baseline, use 4 right-hand dribbles to a layup at the other end, repeat coming back, then switch hands.


- 3 dribbles from the foul-line extended (shown)
- 2 dribbles from halfcourt
- reverse layups (advanced).

From the baseline, one dribble then go through the legs
