Description of Drill-Execution

Have players set up two lines.  One at X and one at the top of the attack zone.
Have balls at both lines, and have a coach or full time feeder stand on the wing area.
The player at the cone up top will feed the wing coach and then cut to the hole and get the feed back.  That player will catch and shoot, then go to the back for the line at X.
Next the player at the X line will feed the coach on the wing and then cut up the field and receive the pass back from the coach. 
That player will have to turn and shoot on a jump shot, and then go to the back of the line at the top.
