This basketball drill, known as the Mikan drill, is designed to help the basketball player perfect their left and right handed layups. It begins with a gentle cross-step to the basket while dribbling and shooting a regular layup with the right hand. On a rebound, switch up and do a left hand layup instead. Then, this sequence continues with another cross-step but in reverse position, followed by a 1-2 step reverse layup ending with a wide hook layup. The challenge of this basketball drill is to achieve 10 points in a row without failing. This exercise requires concentration combined with strong basketball skills for its successful completion.
