Basketball Tip: How to Crossover Dribble
Hi, my name is Brandon Ball, former pro point guard & CoachUp coach.
“Ball up into the lane, scoops it up in and in!”
And this is the between legs crossover.
A between the legs crossover is a quick move used to explode by your defender. Let's say you come down in transition, you have a defender between you and the basket, and you need to free yourself to get to the basket.
So, you wanna come down, come down the floor in transition, you're gonna go between your legs, crossover as fast as you can.
Now it's important to make sure your eyes are on the rim, alright, make sure your eyes are on the rim. The reason why I say that is because if you can see the rim, you can see everything. So if a teammate pops open, you can hit him with a quick pass, but right now we're trying to get you to the basket. So, between the legs crossover, you come down and then explode to the rim.
