Florida Gators Pick and Pop Basketball Shooting Drill


A great way to get quality shots as a post player is to set a great screen and then pop for an open shot. Setting a great screen forces the post defender to help on the ball handler, which opens up the shot for the post player.

This post-move basketball drill will allow for the post player(s) to get up a lot of quality repetitions in a short period of time. You can do this drill in a one on one workout or with a group of post players because it is quick-paced and allows for quality reps at a high pace.
