  • We’re going to teach you how to play bigger than your size, especially if you’re a smaller, undersized guard.

    When you attack the rim on penetration or grab a rebound, there are a few tools you must know to be successful.

    1. Use a Fake to Get the Defender in the Air

    Get the ball to your chin, eyes to the rim, butt down, with your elbows wide to protect your space. Then, you can finish or draw the foul.

    2. Chiropractor

    Use this move when you’re close to the basket. Fake—to get the defender high—then put the ball on the defender’s hip giving the impression you’re making a pass. We call it the chiropractor because when they’re done falling for the fake, they’ll need to see one. Work on this move anytime you into the basket for a layup.

    3. Pivot & Mini Hook

    After grabbing a rebound, look for scoring opportunities. You can do this by grabbing the ball, pivoting, and shooting a soft mini hook before the defender can attempt to block the shot. This is a move that will be a difference-maker against taller, longer players.

    Join us at a PGC camp this summer to discover how to be the smartest player on the floor while developing the mental toughness, habits and focus necessary for greatness, both on the court and in life.
