Post drill: Ball Screen, Roll & Receive High-Low Pass
Run multiple cutters to the same general area, which provides you an offensive advantage and makes match-up zones struggle in their quest to defend you.
Why use this post drill
- Get your post players used to coming toward the perimeter, then move back toward the hoop in creating high-percentage scoring chances.
- Both players also get a shot during each repetition, which accelerates shooting improvement.
- You have a ball on the right wing.
- Place a post player on the ball side and one on the weak-side block.
- A second coach (or manager) has a ball on the opposite wing.
How to play

- The opposite post relocates to the middle of the free-throw area .
- The ball screener rolls to the hoop as you passto the post player at the free-throw line .
- The new ball handler throws a perfectpass leading the roller toward the hoop.
- The roller catches and scores at the rim.
- The passer then turns and receives a pass from the other coach.
- The passer takes the jump shot so both players get a shot .
