5star foul-line flash

Tony Bergeron


Flash to the foul line for a pass, rip thru for a one-dribble layup (reverse pivot on the left foot for a right-hander).

Repeat from the other side, forward pivot on the left foot, crossover, one left-hand dribble.
For another approach to using a permanent pivot foot, see Shooting - Mike Procopio wing.

b) spin and shoot

Shot fake, one-dribble crossover step with the right foot, drop step, spin on the left foot, shoot a jump shot.

Flashing from the other side it's a blast step, right-left, drop step, spin on the right foot (there's an extra step).

c) backdoor or shoot

1 flashes, shows his hands, calls "backdoor" and backcuts, 3 pass fakes and bounce passes, 1 finishes on the left (from the right, finish on the right). Pass to the cutter, don't lead him to the basket.

Next player 2 flashes, doesn't say anything, catches and takes a quick jump shot.

Continue alternating backcuts and shots. 1 makes sure to start the next round with a shot.
