The following is from Ryan Velasquez, Head Boys Basketball Coach at Oswego East High School:
Why we do this drill:
It is a competitive game-like atmosphere and a favorite for our guys. This drill works on getting our guys in game shape. During this drill, on offense we emphasize playing fast, kicking the ball ahead with the pass, and scoring in transition. On defense, we emphasize sprinting back, not giving up lay-ups, communicating, and protecting the paint.
The players love this drill because it is a competitive and fast-paced drill.
Ryan Velasquez has been coaching basketball for the past 20 years at a variety of different levels. He is entering his 7th season as the boys head coach at Oswego East High School. Last season, the Oswego East Wolves made an IHSA Elite 8 appearance.
