Alternate underhand scoop passes (right hand to left hand, left hand to right hand), progressions

- same-time push passes, then while moving
- one right-hand dribble, right-hand pass off the dribble, catch with both hands, left-hand dribble and pass, continue, progression - while moving.

c) Behind the back passes

1 faces halfcourt, 2 faces the baseline, both players make behind the back bounce passes with their right hand.
