Video footage of Pepperdine vs CSULB. Lots of great hustle and ball control:
Look Before You Shoot with Coach, Brad Barber...
Get several different objects, i.e. backpack, sandal, umbrella post, beach chair, volleyball, cooler, put them in different spots on the court. Put an object in each deep corner. Put an object in the from left and front right and middle left, middle center middle right. Now have your partner set you. Be sure that you are getting high sets. You will notice the Pros's set very high. This gives them time to look. After the set has come out of your partners hands and you are starting your approach have your partner yell out an object take a very quick glance at that object and now try to hit it with a controlled shot. The object is to jump hard like you are going to spike for maximum vertical. This freezes the back court defender into thinking you are still spiking and is and makes you much harder to defend. Now go ahead and take your eyes off the object and refocus on the ball and make a very crisp shot to the intended object.
Remember the glance happens in just a split second and takes patience to learn. Also this skill is EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO DO IN THE WIND.
So wait for a calm day. ~ Brad Barber
