Abstract

Aim: The aim of this study was to determine the relationships between sprinting and dribbling speed during linear and change-of-direction (COD) sprints, using total performance time and Dribble Deficit.

Methods: Collegiate, male, basketball players (n=10; 21.0±1.6 yr) performed 20-m linear and COD sprints with and without dribbling a ball. Linear dribbling sprints were measured separately for the dominant and non-dominant hands, while COD dribbling sprints involved bilateral use of hands. Dribble Deficit was determined as the difference between performance time (s) during each dribbling trial and the equivalent non-dribbling trial for linear and COD sprints. Simple linear regression analyses were performed during linear and COD sprints to determine the relationships (R) and shared variance (R2) between: 1) sprint times and total dribbling times; 2) sprint times and Dribble Deficit.

Results: Large to very large, significant relationships were evident between linear sprinting and dribbling time for dominant (R=0.86; R2=0.74, P=0.001) and non-dominant hands (R=0.80; R2=0.65, P=0.005). Only trivial relationships were apparent between linear sprint time and Dribble Deficit with dominant (R=0.10; R2=0.01, P=0.778) and non-dominant hands (R=0.03; R2=0.00, P=0.940). Similarly, a very large relationship was evident between COD sprinting and dribbling time (R=0.91; R2=0.82, P<0.001), while a trivial relationship was observed between COD sprinting time and COD Dribble Deficit (R=−0.23; R2=0.05, P=0.530).

Conclusions: Dribble Deficit is recommended for use in basketball to measure dribbling speed independent of sprinting speed across linear and multidirectional movement paths.
