Canada Basketball Technical Manual

Two lines, 2 makes a change of direction move (v-cut), cuts to the top of the circle for a pass from 1, makes a crossover move and finishes with an outside-inside power layup or a jump shot.

In a game, 2's defender is overplaying.

Progressions

- catch the ball on the outside foot and curl to the basket (catch and go, crossover with the inside foot), the defender is trailing

- coach is a defender, read whether to crossover or curl

- live 1-on-1 (coach is the passer)

- use this cut to start a 2-on-2 or 3-on-3 situation, creating a one-second advantage for the offence

- practice cuts from the corner to the wing (blast cuts).
