Dive Down, Duck In (Video)

Written by

In Dive Down, Duck In, we simulate one of the ways to get open in the post. Once position is established, creating a lane to receive the ball becomes the priority

The drill sets up with a passer, with a ball on the top, shooter on the block and a defender in the lane  Dive Down Duck In1
Shooter cuts up the lane and touches the ball, held by the passer. After touching the ball, he cuts down the lane to the block. This is to give the shooter a starting point and to simulate him coming down the lane to post up.  Dive Down Duck In2

 When met by the defender, the shooter execututes proper footwork to get his inside hp and inside shoulder between the defender and the ball.

Passer enters the ball into the post on the "duck in" and shooter executes a post move.
