The pass-and-cut is an offensive play in which a player simply passes (gives) to a team-mate and cuts (goes) towards the basket. The use of the cut, a sharp change of pace and direction, is how attackers can break free from their defender and then look to receive a return pass from their team mate in space.
What's in the Session?
To get your players making sharp cutting runs we start simply, with a drill encouraging players to offload the ball and make a V cut run before receiving the return pass and going on to shoot. However, we know your players are better than that and so once they've mastered the basics we're going to step up the intensity.
Come the end of this session in the final game you should find yourself with a team full of skilful cutters, players who are skilled at losing their markers and creating space in which to receive the ball.
No rebounds, no rings! Get your players to be first to the ball with the offensive rebound and see what a difference it makes to their attacking game!
Teach your player to pass and cut. This more advanced version of the give and go is perfect for receiving the ball in space and drawing defenders out of position!
