Last week, I sent out a request for my newsletter subscribers to send in their best [tag]basketball shooter[/tag] [tag]drills[/tag]. Check out this one below from Derek (very creative!).
Boxing Out/Shooting Drill:
2 players form 2 lines at each end of the key on the baseline (Player A and B-defense). Opposite them on/above the elbows (or 3 point line) are two other players (Player C and D-[tag]offense[/tag]).
If player A has the ball he can pass to either Player C or D. Whoever he passes to he has to run up and try to affect the shot. Whoever Player A passes to Player B then runs up and covers the other player. Either Player C or D has received the pass and shoots. Player A after the shot will turn to box out the shooter as Player B boxes out the opposite offensive player.
The players have fun with this [tag]basketball[/tag] [tag]drill[/tag] as it gets them running, [tag]shooting[/tag], [tag]boxing out[/tag] and competing one on one with their team mates. They always like to show they can shoot so well that no boards are given or that no one on the team can out hussle or rebound them.
