Shoot & Hustle
‘Partner Passing’ encourages shooters to hustle after their own shots as the partner sprints to a perimeter shooting spot. MORE
Dribble penetration forces a zone to collapse and allows your shooters to find open perimeter shooting pockets left unguarded
WHY USE THIS BASKETBALL DRIBBLING PLAY
Zone defenders typically move in the wrong direction on dribble penetration. Most defenders instinctively go to the ball rather than contain their responsibility area.
Three of your players are positioned low forcing the defenders to remain near the basket. Position a good ball handler on the right wing.
HOW TO PLAY
An opposite post player comes high and sets a ball screen as the ball-side post relocates to the right corner. The only player left near the right block posts up to contain that defender. The ball handler dribbles right . A pass is made to the right wing. The ball-side post comes high and positions for a ball screen . The ball screen is executed and the ball handler penetrates near the lane. Three defenders collapse leaving the wing unguarded. The right-corner player moves into a shooting window, receives the kickout pass and nails the 3-pointer .
The shooter finds the perfect spot so the ball handler has an easy passing lane to utilize. Be sure the screener rolls toward the hoop pulling the defender away from the rightwing area.
