How to play

- The rebounder passes to the shooter, who takes the shot.
- Make it and continue the movement by running to the opposite side.
- Miss it (as shown) and the shooter rebounds the ball .
- Grab the missed shot, shoot the layout, sprint to the opposite sideline and move to the elbow.
- The rebounder grabs the ball after the layup and readies to pass to the elbow .
