For this ball screen split drill you are going to be working on splitting the defenders on a ball screen. You will use this move when the big man over shows and the guard and big man don’t come all the way together. This usually will happen on a hard hedge or a trap situation and it is because the big man is impatient and gets out too early or the guard defender gets hung up on the ball screen.
The split is a very effective move if used the right way. One of the big keys is staying low and being explosive when you make the move. If you are standing straight up the ball is going to get tipped or stolen. Basketball is a simple game and this drill is all about reading the defense and taking what they give you.
