Attack Dribble: Baseline Drive Adjustment (Whole)

This entry is part 11 of 24 in the series Dribbling Actions

A. 5 players 1 action (WHOLE)

In all of the whole building blocks that make up this layer, all drives will be baseline drives. Ball handlers should always recognize their natural pitch and their safety from each location as well as the 45 and 90-degree windows.  Coaches should show the rotations for the baseline attack dribble from each spot.

5 out
Locate 5 players at the 5 perimeter spots. Since this layer is all about baseline drives, the ball will start with the player in one of the corners.  The player with the ball attacks the baseline off the dribble.  The other players fill the windows for the baseline drive.

4 out 1 in
Locate 4 players at 4 of the 6 perimeter spots and a post player in the post. Because of the different configurations in this alignment, it is important to distinguish when a drive is a baseline drive and when it is not.  All drives from the corner are baseline drives. Drives from the wing are baseline drives if there is no player in the corner.

Because of the number of different configurations of the 4 out 1 in alignment it is difficult to make hard and fast rules for which players should fill which windows.

3 out 2 in
Locate 3 players at 3 of the 5 perimeter spots with 2 players in the post.  The post players can be in the high post or the mid post. Because of the variety of combinations of spots, it is important for players to recognize when a drive is a baseline drive just like in the 4 out 1 in alignment.
There are even more possibilities for locations for all 5 players in this alignment.  It is important that players follow their concepts and principles and fill the 5 windows. They may not get filled the same way every time.  That’s ok, as long as they are filled.
Time to break it down.
