how do I break a press?

Advance the basketball up the floor

Too many teams spend time passing the ball back and forth horizontally, instead of vertically. You should advance the ball up the floor UNTIL you feel pressured(this may be different for every player!), then REVERSE the ball to a teammate, and CUT according to your teams designed pressbreak. Repeat until the press is broken.
