Dribbling: Add other styles of dribbling for example behind the back, between the legs once you get comfortable with the drill.
Shooting: You can either dribble to the spot, or toss the ball out and reach out for it. You can also toss the ball out, reach out for it, fake shot and dribble to a desired spot before launching the shot.
Drive shots: You can use cross-over dribble, reverse spin, and another dribbling technique that you are comfortable with and make the layups in front of behind the basket. You are limited by your own imagination when it comes to variety.
