I think we are all always looking for creative ways to work on our shooting in the off-season.  We are fortunate at Texas A&M to have The Gun 8000 from Shoot-A-Way.  If you go to their website, they have 20 of the games best teachers going through a series of their best shooting drills utilizing The Gun.

Here are a few of my favorites (click on each coaches' name to view the youtube clip):

Steve Alford with a 3-player shooting drill which gets shots for a cutter off the down screen, the screener making the second cut, and the passer -- great motion shooting drill.

Brad Stevens with a drill that gets a player a shot off the down screen followed by another off the flare screen.

Pat Summit -- leave it to Coach Summit to tie in a defensive component with The Gun as she works on closeouts while shooting.

Tom Izzo -- shows a ball screen and pop drill for all those coaches utilizing the ball screen.

Steve Wojciechowski -- demonstrates a penetrate and pitch drill for all those dribble drive coaches.

Thad Matta -- showing his team shooting "Hubies."

Remember, there are a ton more of these at The Gun site!
