Current women’s basketball coach at the University of Connecticut, Geno Auriemma, demonstrates a three-man weave which combines passing, shooting, rebounding, and finishing. This unique weave focuses on both skill and toughness.
A Three-Man Weave to Promote Toughness
Drill Summary: The drill starts at half court. Each player must call out the name of the player they pass the ball to. Once a player catches it above the block, they will shoot a short pull-up jump shot using the backboard. While the shot goes up, the two players who are not shooting the ball, will battle for position to get the rebound. The player, who gets the rebound, will power up and look to score. There will be no fouls called during the skirmish for the rebound.
Keys to the Drill:
2) Solid Passes
3) Getting the Proper Angle for the Jumper off of the Glass
5) Finishing through Contact
