  • The first player in each line DOES NOT have a basketball.
  • The Activity - begins with the first player in line making a "V-Cut" at the baseline and pops back out to about 12 feet away from the basket and calls for the ball by showing ten fingers to player #2.
  • Player #2 passes the ball to player #1.
  • Player #1 shoots and gets his own rebound.
  • Player #1 then goes to the back of the line giving his ball to #4.
  • Since player#2 gave his ball to player #1, he now makes a V-cut to the baseline and the activity repeats itself.
