Shooting Drills for Guard Improvement with Gregg Marshall!

In this segment, we will look at a shooting drill called the ‘4-3-2-1 Drill’ used by Gregg Marshall. This exercise is part of a skill development practice with the guards at Wichita State. Your players will develop their conditioning and shots at game speed. 

4-3-2-1 Drill

Player Movements: In this shooting drill, the player will shoot 4 shots on one end of the floor while alternating right and left sides. The player will then sprint to the opposite end of the floor and shoot 3 shots in the same manner. The drill continues as he sprints to the other end again for 2 more shots and then he will push the ball on the dribble (no more than 3 dribbles), and pull up and take his last shot.

Drill Tips: Focus on conditioning your players and developing their footwork to make the most of this drill.
