Getting Open

Many times in an offensive set the Swingman will have to get open along the perimeter. When being played by an aggresive defender, the best way to do this is to use what's called a V-cut(see Footwork section). The V-cut is the most effecient way to get open along the perimeter and 9 times out of 10 is all the offensive player needs to use to free him/herself.
