Judy Blume (MasterClass instructor) asked her editor why he took her on as an author. He saw the possibilities...
We don't practice 'traditional' layup lines. What are some alternatives (especially with multiple baskets)?
1. Lithuania Layups (from Chris Oliver)
The ball shouldn't hit the floor.Speed layups for warm-up via the Lithuania team at the #JonesCup. I like it because most of warm-up IMO is about getting shots as we shoot more than we get layups in games...the other part is a short burst of energy & enthusiasm so this would take care of that. pic.twitter.com/UQXy7w1Ozg— Chris Oliver (@BBallImmersion) July 29, 2018
2. Kentucky Layups
Competitive and conditions. Use four basketballs. In middle school, if we can make 50 we're doing great. We usually do multiple sets of 2 minutes.
3. Tufts Reverse Layups (from Carla Berube)
4. UCONN Layups (via UCONN Women's practice)
5. One dribble finishes. Quarterback layups
Run the drill from different angles - top, wing, corner. Easily separates explosive from nonexplosive finishes.
6. Basic box drills (using multiple baskets, we get 3 at practice)
Demand explosive finishing (one hard dribble)
Learn to finish on either side with either hand
Learn to finish "goofy" footed
Add defense later
