In this video clip with Wichita State Head Coach, Gregg Marshall, the ‘Rip and Pull Up’ shooting drill is highlighted. This is done to simulate the defense attempting to make a steal from the offense and can be used as a warm-up at practice.
Rip and Pull Up
Athlete Movements: In this warm-up shooting drill, the line of players each have a ball on the baseline and they will pass to a manager or coach at the top. They will then make a cut to get open on the wing, receive and pass back, and then rip the ball through and shoot a one dribble pull up.
Teaching Points: The coaches emphasize ripping the ball through hard and using that one dribble to really “go somewhere” and escape the defense.
