Tips:

  • Mario O’Brien says:

    This drill forces the thrower to break the mark at the hardest point, not just when it’s easy or convenient

    B can use different cut angles (cutting open to break, away to break, or just cutting in a straight line); this teaches the thrower to read cutter angle and time their break move
  • Brummie says:

    This drill is designed to make life difficult for the thrower so they improve their skill. In a real game scenario, you'd try to avoid making the most difficult throw possible by creating cuts into more space
