Purpose: To teach players the options from the pass-and-go-behind maneuver.
Drill: This drill uses 2 players. Player 2 makes a V-cut to the basket, as shown. Player 1 passes the ball to Player 2 and then goes behind to get the handoff.
Player 1 now works on the following three plays:
- Get handoff and drive directly to the basket for a layup.
- Get handoff and hit jump shot either immediately or after taking one dribble to the side.
- Get handoff, dribble toward baseline, and look to hit Player 2 on the roll to the basket.
Coaching Points: Run this drill from both sides of the floor. You can also add 1-2 defenders. The coach may choose to tell the defense what to do when first adding them into the drill. This will ensure that the offense performs a desired move and learns to react to the moves of the defense.
