20 Shot Post Ball Screen Basketball Drill

20 Shot Post Ball Screen Basketball Drill


Ball screens are a great way for post players to get a quality look at the basket. The better the screen is, the more the defense has to help out on the ball handler. This opens up the opportunity to space for a shot or role to the basket. None of this happens, though, unless the screener can come and set a great screen (and the ball handler is aggressive coming off the screen).

This basketball post move drill is going to work on spacing after setting a ball screen. It will work on spacing for a shot, spacing for a rip through shot, and then spacing for a rip through finish at the basket. It is a great basketball drill to work on the proper footwork of spacing after a screen and then executing the shot and the rip through move correctly.

Basketball Drill Instructions

  • The player will start on the left block, and the partner will start on the wing with the ball.
  • When the drill starts, the player will sprint out to a ball screen so that the ball handler is coming off the screen going to the middle of the floor.
  • After setting the screen, the post player will space out to the wing area for a catch and shoot shot.
  • After the shot, the player will immediately sprint to another ball screen on the lane so that the ball handler is attacking towards the wing.
  • The player will once again space for a shot.
  • Repeat this sequence 5 times through for a total of 10 shots.
  • Without taking a break, the player will go through the same ball screen sequence, but this time instead of a catch and shoot shot, they will rip through on the catch for a one-dribble pull-up shot.
  • Do this 3 times through for a total of 6 shots.
  • For the last type of shot, the player will set the same ball screens, space, and rip through; but this time, they are going to rip through all the way to the basket off of one dribble.
  • Do this 2 times through for a total of 4 shots.
  • This brings the entire total of all the shots to 20.
  • Shoot a few free throws, and then switch sides of the floor and repeat.
