About This Play/Drill

In this diagram and embedded video we look at a drill to get your team warmed up and ingrain the cuts and spacing of your press breaker. I liked this early in the season while our players were still learning the press breaker.

  • Basketball Play - Press Breaker Warmup Drill

Organization: Groups of five players line up in our press breaker spots. One ball per group with the inbounder.


Descriptions: In 5 trips down the court the group will use each of the four press breaker entries and "Go" in our press breaker. On each inbound the group will reverse the ball one time before hitting the middle or throwing a long scoring pass. The group needs to get into a 2-1-2 alignment before advancing the ball to the middle or up the sideline.


Points of Precision:

-Hard cuts and screens

-Stay behind the ball in reversal spot

-Quick, low pivots on the catch and peek

-Form a 2-1-2 with a reversal before advancing

-Pride in the accuracy of passes
