Tip #2 Box Out

Boxing out in basketball should be as routine as dribbling a ball. Every trip up or down the court, offense or defense you have to box out. Here are a couple key steps of boxing out.

  • Split your defender- one foot in between their legs and the other on their outside hip
  • Strong stance- get low with your strong side forearm contacting the opponent
  • Turn and keep the opponent on your back- use your arms to guide movement left or right
  • Locate the ball and explode for the rebound

Use these simple tips and become a rebound machine.
