Drive Baseline Reverse Dribble Middle Jump Shot

Drive Baseline Reverse Dribble Middle Jump Shot
By Hal Wissel

The reverse dribble to the middle for a bank jump shot is used when you are driving baseline and your defender gets in your path at the midpoint of the baseline. Drive toward the baseline with your outside hand (the hand away from the defender). When your defender gets in your path at the baseline midpoint, pivot on your inside foot and make a reverse dribble to the middle, creating space away from your defender. The reverse dribble should take you to a bank shot (45 degree) angle above the block. Keep the ball in the same hand as you pull the ball close to your body. Pick the ball up between your knees with your shooting hand on top and your non-shooting hand under the ball. Aim for a spot above the top near corner of the box on the backboard. Shoot a bank jump shot. Jump and land in the same spot as your takeoff. Be ready to rebound. On a missed shot, catch the ball high with two hands, make a shot fake, and score with a power move.
