Basketball: V-cut to the basket

I can't get enough of Sportplan. It's given me back the enthusiasm...
Cornel

DESCRIPTION

Players line up at the half way line. The first player in the group starts with the ball.

Player 2 stands on the left hand side of the court and player 3 stands at the corner on the right hand side.

Player 1 passes to player 2, fakes to go the other way and then goes towards the ball and receives the return pass.

Player 1 pivots (use front or reverse pivot) and passes the ball to player 3 before then performing a V cut towards the other side of the court, stopping and then pivoting towards the ball to receive the pass from player 3 and executes a lay up shot.

After the lay up shot player 1 plays an outlet pass to player 2 and then goes to replace player 3. Player 3 replace player 2 who then passes to the next starting player and goes to join the back of the queue.
