The sweep one-dribble pull up move is used if a defender closes out too hard or is out of control on the closeout. It is a great move that usually ends up in a high-quality shot if you can master the move. This basketball shooting drill will help you get lots of reps at this specific move and will also help you improve your conditioning.
A big key to this move working effectively is getting somewhere with your dribble when you make the sweep move. If you don’t get that separation from the defender, they will still be able to contest your shot after going by them. When you do this basketball drill, make sure that you are locked in on the details of the move.
