Week of 1/27-2/2/13 Players Tip of the Week

Boxing out on the defensive boards. If your team is playing man to man and you have responsibility toi block out your man on the defensive board you should do the following:

1. As soon as the ball is in the air for a shot by any of your opponents on offense including your man, the first thing to do is to find your man and then the 2nd thing is to go right towards him/her and wait for him/her to go to the basket for the rebound.

2. As soon as the player you are to box out makes a move left or right, then that is the time to block him/her out.
