(Rental)-Mike Krzyzewski Open Practice: Shooting Drills
Duke Shooting Drills
To become a consistent winner, you have to be able to shoot the basketball. The Duke basketball program under head coach Mike Krzyzewski has been able to sustain a championship culture by becoming one of the more consistent shooting teams in the nation. In this video, you will find more than 20 shooting drills taken directly from coaching clinics throughout the years. Featured are Krzyzewski and former Duke players and assistant coaches Johnny Dawkins and Chris Collins.
With five national titles and over 1,000 career wins, Krzyzewski has developed some of the best shooters in NCAA history. Coack K will take you through warm up drills to full court shooting to half-court situations in an effort to develop more dynamic offensive threats.
Each coach takes a turn demonstrating various Duke shooting drills they have used to develop perimeter talent. Molding perimeter players is of extreme importance to Krzyzewski since his offense is based upon spreading the floor and attacking with a 3-point shooting arsenal. You will see individual, partner, and three-man shooting drills.
Duke Shooting Drills with Pressure
The Celtic 50 and 10 Spot Shooting Drills apply pressure to the shooter by setting a goal number of makes or by not allowing the shooter to advance to the next spot until the goal is achieved. Two Ball, Three Person Shooting ups the intensity with constant movement and a wide variety of shots.
W and Shooting Suicide are drills that work on transition shooting and help to build players’ conditioning levels. Players sprint from half court to a designated spot where they catch and shoot. Again, a predetermined number of makes is required to advance or reduce the running distance to the shooting spot.
With the importance of ball screens in the offense, players work on a series of drills to train players in the different ways they can use ball screens. These include:
- Off of a refusal of a ball screen
- Off the acceptance of a ball screen
- Off a defender going under the screen
- Off splitting two defenders to get into the lane
The coaches also demonstrate Catch and Face drills to improve footwork and gain offensive awareness by squaring up to the defense. A number of drills are based off the Catch and Face. Players work two- and three-man penetration and kick 3-point attempts, relocations, angle screens, and more. Players learn proper spacing off every angle of dribble penetration.
There is also the Finishing Moves Series which works on attacking the basket with a variety of dribble moves and finishes inside the paint. Coach Collins discusses the need for guards to be able to shoot from a number of angles without getting a shot blocked. He presents drills to work on skills such as floaters and runners.
All in all, this is a complete presentation of a number of Duke shooting drills designed to help players execute shots in game-like situations. Improve your team’s ability to score from anywhere on the floor with this excellent video! Rent this Duke Shooting Drills DVD today.
