This is a drill that helps the posts shoot under pressure. The shooting inside the paint is the skill that is being worked on. Most teams carry at least 4 post players but if you have more, place the extras around the three point line for passing.
The drill begins with two of the posts at the wings. The other two posts begin the drill on the baseline. One of the posts is the offence, and the other is the decoy. The offensive post cuts straight up the middle of the key and receives a pass from the left wing. As soon as he receives the pass, the decoy runs towards offensive post with his hands up to create pressure for the offence. The offensive post squares up to the basket and shoots. The decoy grabs the rebound and passes it back out to the left wing. The offensive post after shooting the ball touches the baseline and now receives a pass from the right wing. The decoy after passing the ball touches the baseline and repeats his diversion of the shot and rebounding responsibilities. Allow the offence to shoot 5 to 6 times and rotate the players.
Make sure the defensive player is rebounding properly
Make sure that the passes are two-handed chest passes
Make sure the offence is squaring up to the basket.
Exchange posts for guards, shooting at the free throw line
