Geno Auriemma is the current women’s basketball coach at the University of Connecticut and a member of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. In this segment, Coach Auriemma promotes transition basketball and focuses on passing while on the move.

Full Court Passing/3 vs. 0

Athlete Movement: Each player must call out the name of the teammate he or she is passing to. Once the three players in the drill reach the opposite baseline, it is 3 vs. 0 coming back on offense. The player in the middle is the ball handler. The other two players in the drill are running the wings at full speed. When the ball handler reaches the top of the key the ball handler will jump stop and bounce pass to one of the wings for a layup.

Teaching Points:

  1. Talking
  2. Good Passes which Lead Your Teammates Down the Floor
  3. Cover as Much Ground as You Can with One Single Dribble
  4. Have a Goal for Makes in a Certain Amount of Time
