Purpose: To teach the skill of executing a dribble handoff within your offensive system. To help players develop scoring ability in a two-man game.
Drill: Form two lines as shown. O1 has the basketball.
O1 dribbles low with the outside hand (right hand) toward O2’s defender. When O1 gets about 5 feet from the defender, O2 fakes to his right by taking a hard step or two and then cuts by O1 for the handoff. O2 dribbles in for a layup.
After the layup, the next group of two performs the drill. Switch lines each time.
- Perform both directions, left and right dribble.
- Perform from different spots on the court.
