Picked this drill up years ago from Coach Roy Williams when he was at Kansas. We love the attention to detail it demands from our players. For example, all four of our fundamental passes are repped: 1) chest pass 2) bounce pass 3) overhead or scoop pass, and 4) baseball pass. KU Break also teaches proper fastbreak spacing, crack-back positioning, outlet and communication.
First 3 passes are air passes between 2 and 1. No more than 3, no less! 3 fills the opposite long cutter lane.
1 may dribble if needed, but he certainly does not want to charge the coach. 1 passes to 3 cutting to the basket. This 4th pass is to be a bounce pass only!
1 cracks-back and then fills the outlet box. 2 becomes the inbounder and makes certain he gets outside the lane line extended.
2 passes to 1. This pass is to be two hands overhead and/or a scoop pass (advanced). Finally, 1 baseball passes to the next available player in line. Special note: We like to get two balls going and players should rotate lines clockwise!
