Coach Hatchell's favorite drills are the basis of the great success she has had at UNC. Her style of basketball is about scoring in three areas: off the break, off turnovers and off the offensive glass. Favorite Drills begin with shooting. Drills include one-handed shooting, two-handed shooting, jump shooting and the 3-ball/2-player drill. Ball handling is an everyday emphasis at UNC. Hatchell shows her best ball handling drills such as 2-ball dribbling, 2-ball alternate and the stutter-step/explode drill. Correct passing and catching fundamentals are taught in Hatchell's favorite passing drills. Freezing the defender is another skill taught to enhance passing skills. Using an easy motion offense drill, Hatchell puts in a solid motion offense with only two rules. This offense is applicable to any level from junior high to college. An excellent trapping drill is demonstrated, which is the foundation for their trapping defensive system. Also included are her favorite rebounding, fast break, 3-point shot and finishing drills. The final drill deals with Coach Hatchell's strategy and organization for timeouts; this is imperative for productive timeouts and execution on the floor!
