Keep statistics in practice. This added pressure forces players to concentrate. Evaluate daily stats and post them in the locker room. Keep cumulative stats as well to provide goals and weekly standards. It's extremely important that your players be aware that you're constantly checking their numbers on field goals and free-throw percentage, rebounds, assists, and turnovers. You may choose to reward players to encourage quality performance.
If you videotape your practices, you'll be able to see the whole court and evaluate how all of your players performed at practice. Taping your practices also allows you to evaluate the effectiveness of your drills. A secondary benefit is that your players may actually work harder knowing that they're being filmed and that “big brother is watching.”
