Bobby Knight called the ability to shoot consistently “the number one skill a player needs.” Solid shooters are invaluable to their teams - but their talent is no accident. Successful, consistent shooting is directly related to the amount of time an athlete spends working on their technique.

Great ball-handling is absolutely crucial. Upping your team’s ball-handling skills gives you the flexibility to trust any player on the court at any given time - it’s the difference between an average team going through the motions and an amazing squad pulling ahead early.

Of course he wanted his comeback to be big – but it ended up being bigger than he ever imagined.

Time for the offense to attack the rim. In this week’s drill from PGC Basketball, athletes will practice making good reads on defensive closeouts, becoming the powerhouse players defenses struggle to stop.
