Wing: (1) The area on the court where the 3-point arc meets the free throw line extended. (2) The offensive player who plays in that area.

If the strong-side wing-to-guard pass is not possible, the third option is for the weak-side forward to flash to the strong-side elbow, take the pass, and cut to the basket on the trademark backdoor play of the offense. Meanwhile, the wing and corner guard exchange on a down screen.

Add a player on the wing and make the offensive player make a pass and then receive it back before attacking the basket. This will encourage good dive cuts and make the offensive player have to work to get the ball as in a game.

Place your best rebounder in the middle, your better defenders on the wing spots. As far as the trap goes, you actually want to double team at the wings using the man on the top and the man on the bottom as described before, keep the rest moving facing the ball and denying entry pass to the post.

How do they defend the wing entry pass? Do they pressure the wing pass or let you have it?
L. How do they react to post feeds? Do they collapse, play half way off their man, or do nothing?
M. Can we lob to the post against them, or do they have help?

The full court basketball drill starts with the middle line passing the ball (outlet) to the right wing. The passer the runs behind the right wing and fills the outside lane up the floor.

Sometimes I have them pass four times before shooting, I use two man games, for example: the baseline guy will come up and screens, then the wing guys cuts to the basket, or have the wing guy go down set a screen for the baseline guy who can pop open for a shot, ...

To enter the ball to the wing, the passer and reciever should ensure a proper passing angle. The passer from the guard spot should attempt to get to, what we call, the "Entry Line".

2. The center scores on the rebound from the right wing's shot and puts his team ahead by one goal.
3. The goalie makes the initial save, but the attacker is right there to kick the rebound into the goal immediately.
Sports The Term Is Used ...

Back door -Right after a player PASSES to a team-mate in the HIGH POST and draws defenders, an open team-mate on the wing comes to the open side (the back door) to catch the PASS and attempt a SHOT.

You bring the ball up court and pass to the center, who draws a double team and kicks it out to you. You pass to the left or right wing just as another guard comes up and sets a pick for you -- you then "roll" to the basket to get the pass for a lay-up or open shot. The Utah Jazz use this one a lot.

You want repeatability in your shot, take every shot the same way. Take as many shots as you can. First take them all in a row, 50 from the corner, 50 from the wing, etc. Then take them in circuits, pick 10 spots and take 1 shot from each spot, go around 10 times.
