Rebounding is very important. If you rebound well, this allows you to get more possessions throughout the game. The team with the most possessions has a better chance of winning.
When blocking out or boxing outů.
After you secure a rebound, you should...
- "Chin the ball" which means to put the ball underneath your chin with your elbows out. This makes it harder for the defense to steal the ball from you after you secure the rebound.
- Pivot away from the basket to the sideline to throw an outlet pass to a streaking player or a guard located near the sidelines.
