  • - Player 1 begins with ball in the left hand on the block, then dribbles to the first cone to execute 3 pull-back dribbles.

    - Player 1 then executes a double crossover (Z1) with only the left hand. In this case, Z1 will represent a front cross into a reverse wrap through the legs (i.e., front to back).

    - Player 1 then dribbles to the next cone to execute the next pull-back and double crossover (Z2). In this case, Z2 will represent a behind the back cross into a "shamgod" cross (i.e., reverse front cross).

    - Player 1 continues to the next cone and down the court in this fashion, alternating between the Z1 and Z2 double crosses and finishing with a left handed layup.


  • - Player 1 now makes the return trip down the court beginning on the block and progressing through each cone to finish again with a left hand layup.

    - At no time shall the ball be touched with the right hand, including the gather for the layup.

    - Other single-hand double-cross moves may be used for Z1 and Z2, as desired.

    - The direction can be reversed to provide isolated work on the right hand.
