This drill deals with teaching players how to set a screen, have a person cut off the screen, and passing the ball to the shooter. You work on having a player curl off a screen, cut back door, and hitting the screening when he rolls.
Start with line # 1 in the baseline corner, line # 2 at the hash mark and line # 3 at the opposite hash mark.
Line 1 passes to line 2 who passes right back and goes to set a screen for the man at line 3 at the top of the key. While the passing is going on, the man on line 3 is bring his man below the line of the screen (top of key) and running a shoulder to shoulder curl off the screen from 2 to the basket where 1 will pass him the ball for a lay-up. The screener (2) will open to the ball and get the rebound. The man on line 1 goes to line 2, line 2 goes to line 3 and line 3 goes to line 1.
This can be done with 3 cutting back door off the screen, 2 opening to the ball and receiving it for a shot or a dump down to 3. You can use bounce, chest, or hook passes to work on passing.
at least 6
Make sure legal screens are being set and that the screener opens to the ball.
Stress the importance of good passing so the shooter will be able to catch and shoot right away.
