One bad pass can lead to another. Bad passing is contagious. You need to take pride in your passing game. Whenever a player receives a bad pass, he or she should make sure that they regain their balance and composure before throwing another pass. Make sure your pass is a good one, and it may lead to a basket. A good pass is just as important as the basket.
The chest pass should go from your chest to the receiver愀 chest. You should step into the pass with your knees bent and follow through, with your thumbs down. This creates good backspin and makes the pass easier to catch.
DON’T TELEGRAPH YOUR PASSES…
In order to be a better passer who gets the ball to the right player at the right time, learn to focus under the basket. Try to see the entire court with your peripheral vision. As you develop your peripheral vision, you will learn to see the entire court.
The bounce pass should travel from your waist to receiver愀 waist. Push the ball into the floor. The ball should bounce about 2/3 of the way to the receiver. You should follow through as in chest pass with your thumbs down. The backspin that this creates slows the ball down and makes it easier to catch.
To enter the ball to the wing, the passer and reciever should ensure a proper passing angle. The passer from the guard spot should attempt to penetrate, whether playing against a zone or man to man defense, and then make a strong pass out to the open wing player. The wing player must get open by making a V-cut or L-cut.
One of the biggest problems with passing the ball into the post is passing from bad angles. The passer, the post player and the basket should all be in a direct line. This forces the defender to pick a side to guard, and you can get a good angle from which to feed the ball into the low post.
