Buzz Williams 7 Spot Shooting Drill
A thank you to Andy Fitzgerald for sending this my way. Here is a shooting drill from Virginia Tech Head Coach Buzz Williams. The drill involves 1 player and 7 cones (or spots on the floor).
7 Spot Shooting Drill
The player has 2 minutes to make 28 shots (around and back). The catch is that the player must make two shots in a row before moving on to the next spot.
