Tips:

  • Brett Matzuka says:

    You’ll need to ensure that your throw sits long enough for B to reach it, but make sure it stays at a catchable height

    Remember that the marker cannot see what’s happening behind them; use your fakes to move the marker and create a throwing lane

    B has an important job too; holding position against D2 by Sealing the Lane to prevent D2 from being able to make a play
