This is a perfect conditioning drill utilizing basketball movements requiring accurate passes, sprinting to position and scoring on the move
WHY USE IT
Rather than simply having players execute up-andbacks with no basketball skills, run players 2-on-0 to boost conditioning and force them to work on passing and scoring in a full-court setting.
One player starts with a ball under the hoop while another is positioned on the wing.
HOW TO PLAY
The player with the ball outlets to the wing then sprints down the middle of the floor. On the catch, the wing pivots and passes ahead to the streaking partner . After making the pass, the wing sprints up the floor and receives a pass back from the middle. On the catch, the wing dribbles hard and scores at the rim .
After the layup, the shooter grabs the ball and outlets to the partner who has relocated to the right wing.
After passing, the original shooter sprints up the middle of the court and receives a pass from the wing. He then pivots and looks up the floor and passes ahead to the wing. The wing catches the ball, dribbles and scores at the rim .
Players must hustle. Make them run it again if they jog or slow down. This is an uptempo drill.
