The Dribble Handoff is used a lot by teams and players at every level.
It would be great for players to make the correct reads off the DHO. Skills development and training can help players make the right reads on the court.
Watch in these two clips from NCAA D III mens basketball as a player makes two correct reads off the DHO.
First clip, the defender goes under which creates space to shoot the ball.
Second clip, the defender gets caught on the screen which creates space to drive down hill towards the rim.
In both clips the player understands how to read the defense.
That is a skill. Reading the D. Thinking the game and making the right plays can really change a players playing experience.
As a player you really have two options.
1. Make the right reads and the right plays to make your team better.
2. Make the wrong reads and the wrong plays which ends up bad for everyone.
Elevate Your Game.
