Teaching the 2-on-1 Break

1. Give it up early, Get it back late

A 2-on-1 is one of the biggest advantages in basketball. Don't overthink it. Pass to the first open player and make defense flip their hips in a backpedal. Most of the time if you give it up early, you get it back late with a bigger advantage.

2. Inside Hand Dribble

The inside hand dribble makes the bounce pass on the 2-on-1 break is faster and provides a better angle for the passer. It also pulls the defender in towards the front of the rim which makes it more difficult to take a charge and sets up the ball handler for a Euro.

3. In your lane / Out of your lane ( AKA shoulder/chest)

If the defender is "in your lane" or has a "chest in front", pass the ball 99.9% of the time. If the defender is "out of your lane" or has a "shoulder in front", finish 99.9% of the time.
