Posting up has changed in the NBA and college game over the last five or so years. Instead of posting up on the blocks, we post up in the middle, two/three feet below the foul line. We feel the offense gains an advantage by having more options open to him.
We drill this by having an offensive player post his man up in the middle of the paint. The coach or mgr. feeds inside from the wings and the top of the key. the offensive player must go to the basket, or shoot a five footer. HE MAY NOT GO OUTSIDE OF THE PAINT!!!
2 players, one coach/mgr.
We make all of our players learn the post up in the middle move. Always make sure that the offensive player WANTS the ball make him work hard to get it.
You also can add two more players to play the wing. Swing
ball around perimeter.
This drill also can be used to teach defensive ball denial. At a defensive standpoint, we NEVER want the ball to get in the middle. Teach denial.
Teaches to post up in the middle as opposed to the blocks.
