This drill emphasizes post moves, feeding the post, outlet passing, perimeter passing, and post defense. This drill helps all players with their footwork and shooting.
The basic drill begins with one player on the low block, one at each wing freethrow line extended, and one at the top of the circle. The ball starts on one of the wings. The wing passes to the low post, the post player drop-steps for a layup, gets their own rebound and outlet passes to the opposite wing, the ball is passed to the top and then to the next person in line who in turn feeds the post.
After each pass, the player follows their pass to take up a new position. The point player goes to the back of the line.

Emphasize passing the ball to the post player so that they can score. The post player should show a hand where they want the ball and call for the ball. Outlet passes should be two-handed overhead passes. Post players should get position and go up strong.
Try this drill from different spots on the floor. Post players can work on different moves. Adding a defender into the rotation makes this drill more realistic. The defender can front, 3/4 deny, or play behind the post. This allows offensive players to work on different entry passes and post players to work on different moves.
