Your players are forced to communicate, hustle, shoot and score all while multiple basketballs are flying around the court and multiple players are participating.

Box Passing Progression
Use a ball fake before every pass and have players progress from a typical chest pass to an overhead, bounce, hook and even add in V-cuts
WHY USE IT
Passing drills need focus, otherwise players toss soft passes rather than using game-like actions.
Position four players in a box formation. The player with the ball (1) is in the corner with a player under the hoop (2), another near the hash mark (3) and a final one at the top of the key (4).
HOW TO PLAY
Start with a chest pass and have 1 pass to 2, 2 to 3, 3 to 4 and 4 back to 1 . The next phase is to use an overhead pass and follow the same progression of 1 to 2, 2 to 3, 3 to 4 and 4 to 1 . From there, add in a bounce pass, a hook pass and have players drive, pivot, fake and pass. Finally, conclude with each player completing a V-cut prior to receiving a pass. Players still execute a rip-through and pivot on the catch. .
Before every pass is made, a ball fake must be executed. When a player receives a pass, he or she must change direction with a rip-through and pivot before using a ball fake. Keep players moving quickly and encourage fast, crisp passes but be sure all actions (ball fakes, rip-throughs and pivots) are used.
