Basketball Practice Drills to Improve Player Fundamentals
UMBC head coach Ryan Odom pulled off one of the biggest upsets in college basketball history when he coached No. 16 UMBC to a win over No. 1 Virginia in the 2018 NCAA tournament. It was the first time a No. 16 seed had ever won an opening round game in the tourney. Odom’s team finished 25-11, won the America East Conference tournament title, and Odom won the Hugh Durham national coach of the year award.
How Coach Odom pulled off the upset is a testament to his up-tempo drive and kick motion offense. In this video, you will see how the offense works and see a number of basketball practice drills that work on the basic fundamentals to make the offense work.
Ball Handling Drills
Coach Odom likes to warm up his players with the Freelance Drill, which also helps players work on their ball handling. The entire team works on a variety of moves to change pace and direction while handling the ball. You will also see how defenders can be added to make the drill even more challenging.
Full-Court Passing Drills
Two drills are presented to improve passing, catching, and shooting while playing at high tempo in transition. The 5-4-3-2-1 Drill forces players to execute with precision while progressively increasing the difficulty of passing and catching.
The 3-Line Passing Drill is a great way to break down the common actions in your transition game. Coach Odom shows you how to run through several drive and kick and ball screen options in this drill.
Pick and Roll Drills
Players must develop chemistry to successfully execute ball screens. Coach Odom shows you the 2-Man Ball Screen Series to work on that chemistry between the ball handler and the screener. A number of pick and roll options are covered and you will learn how to use side, angle, and middle ball screens.
Coach Odom’s up-tempo style of player requires shooters that can spread the floor. Odom shares two shooting drills that help do just that. V-Cut Shooting Drill can involve an entire team for shooting practice around the whole floor. The Drive & Kick Drill breaks down dribble penetration options in the half-court offense while reinforcing the types of shots that are created from these actions.
Coach Odom shares some excellent basketball practice drills that perfectly reinforce essential basketball fundamentals and allow players to be successful in his offense. Rent this basketball practice drills DVD today.
