    My team is filling but go into a cut without changing speed.  I have tried to tell them they have to, but they see there defense trailing so they go, but then it turns into a very circular motion, and it is too quick for the passers to hit the cutters.    Is there a drill to slow it down?

    hi tyler,
    this might be too late, but i was thinking you could just play 5-on-5 (or 4-on-4) halfcourt with NO dribbles.

    you could play offense for 5-straight possessions, then switch and compete that way. or you could simply play first team to 5 baskets, etc. – either way, make it competitive.

    after 5 or 6 cuts without completing a pass, they should eventually figure out that they need to setup their cuts, rearcut/puppy dog, cut harder, fill out faster. Pause before filling the open spot maybe?
