Start to the right of the basket, shoot with the right hand, rebound, go to the left of the basket, shoot with the left hand, rebound, go back to the right, continue. How many baskets in 30 seconds or 1 minute (goal is 40 in one minute)? For quick swish shooting, aim high on the backboard.


- hook shots
- power layups
- shot fake, power layup
- weak-hand finishing only (Dave Smart)
- use two balls, only one is used for shooting, the other transfers from hand to hand.

Reverse Mikans

Start on the right side of the basket but back to the baseline, shoot with the left hand off the right foot, rebound, move to the other side to shoot with the right hand off the left foot.
