These are drills I use to expose younger players to Horns and the actions that can be run out of the set. I think showing kids the NBA actions and sets in practice will change the way they watch NBA games and increase on court IQ.
High Post Entry Pass: There are two lines in every part of this drill. The players at the top of the key are in line with basketballs in hand. The players on the baseline are flash past the high post and catch a bounce pass or high pass. This is a great way to work on meeting the ball and catching with back to the basket.
The Handoff Action: The high post player keeps the ball high or out to protect while his back is at the basket. The passer cuts to the outside for a handoff and finishes at the rim. Players then join the opposite line.
The Keeper: The high post ball handler should read his defender. If the defenders react to the handoff. He has the option of faking it, and turning inside to finish at the rim himself. Players then join the opposite line.
The 2nd Handoff Action: This action relies on a coach or trainer. There are still two lines. Instead of a line at midcourt, there is now on in the strong corner. A pass is made to the high post. The ball handler then makes a 1-2 dribble handoff to the corner player who curls around. You may practice a finishing at the rim, elbow attacking jump shots, or pick and roll from this action. Players then join the opposite line.
