- This basketball post position drill starts with three offensive players on the perimeter - one at each wing and one at the top of the key. Put one offensive player and one defensive player in the lane.
The perimeter players pass the basketball around the perimeter and make an entry pass to the offensive player in the lane when available.
This forces the defensive player to maintain proper defensive position while the ball is being passed around the perimeter. This also forces the offensive player to set up the defender for superior offensive positioning.
This is a great basketball post position drill for both offensive and defensive post play. This drill is best set up in timed rotations, such as 15 - 30 seconds.
