Skill drills break down into three areas: offense,
fundamentals, and combination. All nine of the drills available will award you
three tiers of VC depending on how you perform, with the ultimate goal being to
attain gold rankings. Since some of the drills are much more difficult than
others to obtain a gold ranking in, it makes more sense to merely repeatedly
attempt the drills you’re good at getting gold in to earn as much VC as
Shooting – Here you’ll compete against one other teammate in
a “king of the hill” style shooting exhibition. There are about a dozen
different shooting squares all over the court. Make a shot from a spot to claim
it, and steal the opponent’s square by making a shot from one of his claimed
areas. Stealing squares is more valuable than earning empty ones.
Dribble course – All you’ve got to do here is dribble the
ball through a series of cones, and make a shot at the other end of the court.
There are three laps to complete, with the second and third having defensive
standees blocking your path to the hoop. It’s very, very easy to get gold
ratings on the course, and it’s one of the best ways to build up VC early in
Knockout – One of the more challenging drills, knockout
requires excellent shooting and reflexes to earn any VC. You’ll be in line with
four other teammates, and will either have to make a shot before the player
behind you can sink one to stave off elimination, or make a shot before the
player in front of you to eliminate them from the drill. Knockout is not a
drill that will earn rookies enough VC for the time and effort involved.
