How do I improve my rebounding?

Boxing Out & Rebounding

If you are real close to the basket when the shot goes up, you must "box out" and create some space to rebound. To "box out" from your defensive position: go towards your man and make contact. Pivot so you “Put your butt to their gut” and just slide with them, keeping them away from the rebound. When boxing out, keep your man from pushing you in towards the basket by keeping a low base. Wait before releasing for the ball until the last moment. Releasing too early will negate the rebound positioning you worked so hard for. Then go get the rebound!
