(Rental)-Mike Krzyzewski Open Practice: Team Practice Drills
Basketball Team Practice Drills
Getting a team to work together and develop chemistry is almost an art form. One of the best at doing it is Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski who has led the Blue Devils to five national titles and 12 Final Fours. Coach K has recorded over 1,000 wins as a head coach because of the ability to get his teams to work together as a unit. In this video, you will sit in on a mash-up of Duke practice sessions as Coach K shows you the secrets of team building.
Right from the start, Coach K sets the tone for practice with a number of passing drills. In a 3-on-3 drill, players are taught to aggressively trap and pressure the ball handler in the backcourt and create a help situation if the ball breaks out of the trap. There is the 4-Man V-Cut Series where the Duke coaching staff shows you how to get open while you look to attack the rim.

Coack K moves on to half-court situations where he guides his team through a series of offensive movements against man-to-man defense. You’ll see dribble handoffs and screens off the ball as Coach K teaches players how to read defenses and attack every counter a defense can offer. Because of the importance of ball screens, there is an extensive ball screen segment in the video. You will see both 2-on-2 and 3-on-3 situations where you will learn how Duke defends on-ball screens and how the Blue Devils attack coming off a ball screen.
As the practice session finishes, Coach K uses 4-on-4 and 5-on-5 full-court situations to tie everything together. Players execute what they have learned in the practice session in a live situation. Coach K teaches his team how to play off of one another in a practice setting, which is how the Blue Devils develop that attacking philosophy that has made them so successful.
