Why use this drill

- 2 is streaking up the sideline and receives a pass from 4 as 2 comes toward the middle.
- 3 is sprinting hard toward the rim and receives the long pass from 2 
- 3 lays in the ball and curls wide to the opposite side
- 5 must hustle to grab the ball out of the net before it hits the floor
- 1 and 4 have followed their passes and cross to opposite sides of the floor 
- 5 starts the transition back with a pass to 4
- 4 passes to 1
- 1 passes to 3
- 2 sprints the length of the floor, receives the final pass and hits the layup .
