September 18, 2009, Newsletter Issue #416: Chin the ball in the Post

Tip of the Week

Great post players keep the ball tucked under their chin, keeping  the ball in a position of strength. The only time the ball comes down is a low-explosive-power dribble into an open space behind a defender, or down between the post players own legs where it is the most difficult to have a ball pocked out by a pesky defender. The time the ball is low and exposed is very limited in great post players. The same technique is used after grabbing a defensive rebound. Chin the ball until you find a good passing lane to one of your guards.
