When a guard uses a ball screen with a big man setting the screen, the other post defender has a few different ways that they might help on the screen. For this basketball drill the player is going to work on reading how the other teams big man is guard the ball screen, and then attacking off of it. There are multiple ways for the other team to guard the ball screen, but for this drill you are going to work on two specific types of hedges that the defense might use.
The first is flat hedge on the ball screen. When this happens the ball handler is going to attack the post defenders hip and try to get the angle past them. On the second type of hedge, the post player is going to hedge straight up the screen to drive the ball handler out, and then they are going to run back to their man who is diving to the post. When this happens the ball handler is going to wait till the post player runs back to the paint and then drive right behind them.
