  • Brummie says:

    Try moving D1 by faking the around break first to give yourself more space to throw

    Be sure to turn off the outside foot when cutting laterally (in this example it would be the right foot) to ensure that you are able to maintain eye contact with the thrower throughout

    Adding this kind of real-time decision making helps to keep defenders honest, while also developing chemistry between thrower and receiver
