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.
Full-Court Speed Dribble Dribble the basketball quickly down the court with your right hand with the ball coming up to your waist and it is far out in front of you when you push it to the floor. Make the lay-up to the right side of the basketball hoop. Then head back up the court, repeating the speed dribble with your left hand and making the lay-up on the left side of the basketball hoop. Do this 6 times then shoot 10 free throws. Then repeat this drill again.
The Low-Post Block, This is where we will spend most of our time learning the post/center play basics. I want the player close-in to the basket and as the player grasps skills and progresses, well then move all over the key. Starting with a good stance and feet placed outside the lane line, I want the players low foot (nearest baseline) above or barely touching the low box. This will become apparent soon. Players should always be cognizant of where the lines and post markings are, as they move about. This comes with repetition.
