Next, I will have them come across the lane from the opposite low block, watching me and the ball all the while, giving me a lead/target hand to pass to, and landing in the right position described above at the near low block. Balance, stance, foot placement, arms and hands extended and readyeverything we just coveredand then Ill pass the ball to them. When they have this maneuver correct, now we begin teaching what to do, once they receive the pass.
The Figure-8 Place your feet more than shoulder’s with apart, slightly bend your knees and bend at the waist. Hold the ball in your right hand, down by your right knee. Pass the ball behind your left knee to your left hand. Bring the ball around your left knee to the front and then pass the ball behind your right knee to your right hand. This will make a “figure-8” around your knees as you are passing the ball continuously. Keep going around and through your knees, first going around the front of your right knee to behind your left knee to your left hand, then going around the front of your left knee to behind your right knee to your right hand. Repeat this drill 15 times going as fast as you can. Then, repeat the drill going in the opposite direction. Remember: don’t watch the ball!
The next of the simple basketball plays is the pick and roll. Player A goes near and behind an opponent who is guarding Player B. Player A has a wide, erect stance and is not moving on the point of contact with the opponent defender. Player B dribbles quickly by the pick by almost brushing shoulders with Player A. The dribble should be toward the basket and to a place where Player B can get a makeable shot. After setting the pick, Player A \"rolls\" quickly toward the basket and while facing the basketball. Player A should make an eager hand target and be ready for a pass from Player B. The pick and roll often works because the defense tends to guard Player A or Player B, but not both.
