DESCRIPTION

Players evenly distributed on sidelines at freethrow lines extended.

Drill goes with two at a time (diagram showing only one player moving).

BLUE shooter begins with a layup, getting his own rebound.

BLUE dribbles toward YELLOW, passes and fills the lane, calling for the pass back. (YELLOW fills at next spot down the sideline).

BLUE dribbles and passes to RED one the move, and gets pass back, then goes into the key as if for a layup.

RED follows and goes inside the elbow in the key, ready for the pass and to shoot.

BLUE stops "on a dime", performs a proper inside foot backward pivot and hits RED who is at the elbow.

RED catches the ball landing on two feet and performs a proper jump shot, then follows their own shot for the rebound and the drill continues.
