One vs. Two Read and React Drill

One vs. Two Read and React Drill
     This is a good drill to develop good hands, and to also read the defense before scoring in the lane area. Three players and and a coach take part in this drill. One player starts in the middle in a balanced stance eight feet in front of the backboard. Two players take positions on either side of the middle player. The coach has a ball and stands four feet behind the backboard and drops the ball near one of the players. The player nearest the should catch it with two hands, attempts to score against the two other players. The player with the ball must read and react to the two defensive players. It may mean using a shot fake and scoring with a power move. It may mean scoring quickly without a shot fake to score. It may mean a shot fake and crossover step before scoring with a hook shot.
     An option to the drill is for the coach to start in the lane behind the three players and toss it off the backboard with the player rebounding the ball attempting to score against the other two players. Another option is to tell the player who catches the ball makes a quick pass to one of the other players who then attempt to score against the other two players.
