Shift the defense one way, drop a low screen in the lane and free a shooter coming to the top as the opposition scrambles to cover multiple areas of the floor. MORE
Blind Rebound Outlet
Keep the rebounder in the dark about where the ball is going to work on game-like situations, then move into outlet passing and defending the pull-up jumper
WHY USE IT
Rebounders have their back to the ball on a shot in a game, so simulate the same scenario in practice.
A rebounder is facing the hoop under the basket. You (or an assistant) have a ball at the free-throw line. Place a line of players at each wing ready for a potential outlet pass. Place a line of defenders under the hoop at the court’s far end.
HOW TO PLAY
Shoot the ball hard with the intent to miss. The rebounder is in a boxing-out position and reacts quickly to the careening ball . The rebounder grabs the ball with two hands and holds it as high as possible. He or she then outlets the ball with a front pivot (or front turn) to the ball-side wing player. The wing J-cuts to receive the ball with momentum. The catch is made and the ball handler dribbles hard up the floor as the first defender steps out . The ball handler pulls up for a mid-range jump shot while the defender closes out with a hand up .
In this instance the ball is caught on the right side of the rim, so the rebounder pivots on the right foot and throws a two-hand, over-the-head pass while stepping toward the receiver with the opposite foot.
