each section makes Players very aware of
what they need to do to succeed
on the court.

Take a look at this excerpt from "Effective Dribbling Skills" ...

Ending the Dribble
When to Stop Dribbling
. Stop - only when the player has located an open man for a pass... Feet - use a "Two Step Stop" planting in a wide base... Back Knee - bends to lower the body
Stopping, But Continuing the Dribble. Feet - shoulder width apart rapidly moving up and down as if "stepping on hot coals"... Toes - facing the basket... Hands - change the dribble from a "Speed Dribble" to a "Control Dribble"... Eyes - read the defender and the defense... Moves - fake before either shooting, passing or driving.
Dribbling under Extreme Pressure. Feet - take a quick step backward, then use either a "Change of Direction Dribble" or "Speed Dribble' to separate from the defense.... Head - up... Eyes - looking for a pass to an open teammate.
