Step & Shoot
University of Kansas Head Coach, Bill Self, introduces a few of his former players who help demonstrate how the Jayhawks use The Gun every day in their basketball practices and in the off season. This video also takes us through the first drill in this series, which is an extremely simple yet effective "Step and Shoot" drill that incorporates the fundamental "B.E.E.F" technique (Balance, Eyes, Elbow, Follow Through).
Shot Fake, One Dribble Jump Shot
University of Kansas Head Coach, Bill Self, shows an effective game-speed shooting drill that is great for high repetition. This drill incorporates a shot fake into a one drill jump shot from about 15 feet. Coach Self emphasizes the importance of footwork and establishing a pivot foot when you step in to catch the ball, as well as when you take a dribble into the quick release jump shot.
University of Kansas Head Coach, Bill Self, goes over the four best times to shoot a three in their program; in transition, off of and offensive rebound, feeding the post and relocating and penetrate & kick. In this drill, Coach Self shows us a great transition three simulating the trailer coming down the middle of the court and spotting up for a quick three. This drill can be done as a team drill, or for an individual workout to work on a quick transition three and conditioning.
University of Kansas Head Coach, Bill Self, and some of his former players, demonstrate a game speed transition wing three-point drill that they utilize as a team drill. When running this drill, it is important for the shooter to stay wide in transition, so they are able to step into their shot while staying behind the three point line.
Feed The Post & Relocate
University of Kansas Head Coach, Bill Self, takes a few of his former players through a drill he uses for skill development and three point shot repetition. In this drill, the player simulates feeding the post, then relocating to receive a pass from The Gun for a quick three. This drill can be used as with a team as seen in the video, or individually.
Offensive Rebound to Kickout Three
University of Kansas Head Coach, Bill Self, and a few of his former players demonstrate a great conditioning and three point drill on The Gun. In this drill, the player is simulating a shot on the wing with defensive responsibility of getting back on D after his shot, but when there is an offensive rebound, he comes back to spot up at the top of the key for a post kick-out three.
Penetrate and Pitch to a Three
University of Kansas Head Coach, Bill Self, shows a penetrate and pitch drill with a few of his former players. This drill is a great drill for the passer to work on forcing the defense to help, and the shooter to maintain good spacing to set themselves up for a quick perimeter three.
