Boxing Out

Having problems watching the video? Watch it directly at YouTube.

In this video we look at a fundamental skill called boxing out.  By boxing out you make it harder for your opponent and easier for you to get rebounds. Coaches often teach boxing out as a defensive skill but you can and should execute this skill on offense as well as defense.  When a shot goes up, everyone on the court should be trying to box out an opponent.  Unfortunately, just the opposite happens most of the time – no one boxes out.
