Gregg Marshall, Wichita State University head coach and three time MVC Coach of the Year, uses the “Curl Fade Transition Three” drill to put his forwards through a few shots they commonly encounter during games. Athletes will immediately become more comfortable shooting after running through this drill.
Curl Fade Transition Three
Drill Summary: Every shot taken in this drill is off a pass from a player/coach. Players start by shooting off a 12-foot curl, then back pedal out and shoot off a simulated fade. Finally, players sprint to half court and transition into a 3-pointer. Do this three times and keep track of total makes so players can compete against each other. After nine shots on one side of the court, move to the other side and do the same thing.
Keys to the Drill:
1) V-cut before receiving the pass (curl).
2) Meet passes.

In this clip, we will look at a shooting drill used in skill development practices with the guards at Wichita State. Led by Head Coach, Gregg Marshall, this drill will work on conditioning and shooting at game speed. Note the element of competition, will not only make the drill more interesting but help your players build their skills better.
Athlete Movements: Each player will shoot a series of 3 shots: an elbow curl shot from the baseline, backpedal into a shot on the wing, and then touch half-court and sprint into a 3-point shot. The player will then complete this quick series of 3 shots 3 times, for a total of 9 shots. Players are paired up and must keep track of the individual makes as well as team total, which adds a nice element of competition and concentration. The drill is then repeated on the opposite side of the floor.

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.

Playing off dribble penetration is an important concept to be taught in any offense. In this clip, you will see how 2013 Final Four coach Gregg Marshall and his staff take their players through a shooting series to reinforce proper movement and getting set up to take good shots created off drive and kick situations.
Player Movements: The “Euro” move – looping behind an offensive teammate driving the basketball – has become increasingly taught in today’s game. Watch how the Wichita State Shockers work on this Euro move as well as a baseline drift move on a baseline drive. The players go through a series of shots that include catch and shoot jumpers, as well as shot fakes with one dribble pull-up jumpers to both the right and left.
Teaching Points: Coach Marshall and his staff emphasize players getting set up properly for the shot by getting their feet set and having a quick release.
