Purpose

This is a great post move that focuses on pivoting with purpose and using (or not using) the glass.

How it Works

Reverse Pivot Faceup and Shoot Basketball Footwork Drill

  1. Start from the left block, in a low, athletic stance.
  2. Keeping your right foot planted, reverse pivot with your left, pivoting across the defenders face.
  3. Take the jump shot.
  4. Grab the rebound and repeat.
  5. Make 5 from each side.

Coaching Tips

  • Adjust the angle, starting lower and higher on the block so that you get a chance to both use and not use the glass.
  • Pivot with purpose!  A hard reverse pivot will force the defender to back off and respect the drive, freeing you up for the jumpshot.
