The first of the simple basketball plays is the dribble handoff. One player dribbles toward a teammate and hands off the ball to that teammate. It is at the moment of the handoff that a chance for a score occurs. The recipient of the handoff is to dribble hard to the basket or, if within shooting range, take a quick dribble or two and then take a shot. The key is to take advantage of the defense being a little out of position during the handoff.
Around the Knees Your feet are a few inches apart. Slightly bend your knees and bend at the waist. Hold the ball at knee level, and pass it around your knees from one hand to the other. You are just circling the ball around your knees, passing the ball from one hand to another. Repeat this drill 20 times going clockwise around your knees. Then repeat the drill again 20 times going counter-clockwise around your knees.
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!
