Dribble Drive Motion - Creating a Split & Decision Making Pt.2

Gerard Hillier 06/15/2016

Here are some more basic drills we have found extremely valuable during the "implementing Dribble Drive" phase, which we still use on a daily/weekly basis (they are a modified version of the traditional DDM Blood Drills). The importance of being able to create a "split" (where two defenders commit to the ball carrier) is pararmount within our DDM system, but the ability to be able to make an appropriate read/decision is just as important. There is no point getting in to the paint if you are just going to throw the ball away. What we are doing in this series is creating gamelike situations for our players, then letting them play it out and build on their decision making ability. You can move the initial setup to suit your teams needs, and all players are encouraged to play all positions/roles as part of their basketball IQ development. See More

Dribble Drive Motion - Creating a Split & Decision Making Work

Gerard Hillier 06/10/2016

Here are some basic drills we have found extremely valuable during the "implementing Dribble Drive" phase, which we also use on a daily/weekly basis. The importance of being able to create a "split" (where two defenders commit to the ball carrier) is pararmount within our DDM system, and just as important is the ability to find the open player (from where the 2nd defender came from) for a high percentage & open scoring option. Our "Decision Making" breakdown work is by far the most important part of our practice plan when it comes to our offensive system, very rarely will we conduct 5on5 for great periods of time (no more than 20mins per practice), rather we choose to place as much time in to 2on1, 2on2, 3on2, & 3on3 situational decision making as possible within our practice plan. We have found this approach to be very successful, creating an enviroment where players are making high percentage decisions/reads on a regular basis. There is a reasonable amount of "ugly basketball" when we first implement the DDM system, and we encourage our coaches to try and let the players "organically grow" within the system and make their own decisions/reads, though this is often easier said than done, try and "guide" the players decision making rather than making the decision for them. We encourage questions like "what was your thought process on that decision" & "what did you see that triggered that decision" See More

Basketball Play - Scissors (dribble drive look)

Scissors (dribble drive look)

Nathan Hill 08/08/2013

This is a common play in our area of Northwest Ohio that I'm sure is used in college and pro's. This play is great because it is designed to for a high post entry, and a "scissor" cut with 2 guards. You can get good looks for 3's off the scissor cut and double screen. This play also offers a chance to enter to the post player with a double screen and post entry, or the big can fake handoff to both players, and have a high post isolation. See More

Today's post from Men's Basketball Hoop Scoop is a Baseline screen action that got the University of Kentucky into their Dribble Drive Offense. Even if you don't run dribble drive motion offense, it's a great set play to get space going to the basket. I think that you will like it. See More
