Coach (A) points in the direction that the player BLUE is to dribble BLUE must dribble at least as wide as the cone in that direction before performing a cross over and cutting back towards opposite cone (shaking the defender) Upon reaching the opposite cone BLUE cuts hard to the basket and must dribble inside the key (inside the low cones) BLUE must drive hard at hte second defender (A), who is posted low in the key to force a pass to the wing (YELLOW or RED) BLUE fills at the wing position to which he passed the ball Shooter (YELLOW) follows his own shot and dribbles around the outside to fill at the top with the ball.
To shake a defender the player with the ball MUST move far enough with the ball to force the defender to move his feet. Once defender is moving cut hard in opposite direction to gain an advantage in order to cut into the key. Upon being stopped the ball must go to the open wing (A will force the pass one way or the other and BLUE must make the correct choice and find the open man who is cutting in as the safety valve)
