In this Dr. Dish drill of the week, Coach Tony Miller demonstrates a great offensive drill to work on ghost screens. Be sure to check out the full breakdown below!
One of the most popular offensive actions in this year’s NCAA Tournament was the ghost screen. Instead of actually screening for the ball-handler, the screen sprints away from the ball, creating separation from his defender. The results is a long closeout from his defender and a relatively open look from 3.
