This drill is the first in our progression series for the 2 Post Offense and focuses on ball reversal and filling the weak side of the floor after the ball has been swung to the opposite side. The term Shallow Cut refers to a player making a cut that starts towards the paint and then fades out to the weak side corner. They only make a "shallow" entry into the paint and do not go deep into the area.

Emphasis Points and Video

  • Squaring up on the catch.
  • Crisp passes to the outside shoulder.
  • Head up and looking for the ball on cuts.
  • Flashing strong to the basketball when filling open space (hands up, eyes up).
