This drill is called the Rick Pitino basketball shooting drill, because it is one of the basketball shooting drills that they do at Louisville University during their basketball training to help develop their players. Everything done during this basketball drill is going to be at a high pace, and is going to be done at game speed. The drill is going to be at full speed, but it is important that the shooter executes each cut the correct way, and really focuses on their footwork.
Another reason why this drill is done at high speed, is because it is going to be used as a conditioning drill as well. As a player gets tired they begin to mental disconnect, and this causes their shooting technique and fundamentals to fade. Well if the player can train to do something the correct way while they are tired, it should hopefully translate over to the game better, and pay off in a late game situation.
