This is a drill which, forces players to avoid the temptation to put the ball on the floor against a press defense. By not being allowed to put the ball on the floor, players are forced to catch the ball and look for a receiver that is open rather than dribble.
Match up 5 on 5 full court and start with a center jump. Once possession is determined, the offensive team must attempt to score without putting the ball on the floor.
Play continues until one of the team scores three baskets.
Emphasis should be on players coming to the ball, catching the ball and immediately looking for a receiver.
Games can be played for a total of five, 3 point shots can count for two, etc...
