HOW TO POST UP by FLASHING in the Post) –Shot Science Basketball


Hey, this is Chase from ShotScience.com
and today I’m going to talk to you about the “Flash.” The “Flash” is used by the post player to
gain possession of the ball away from the basket, or to create space from their post
defender. To have an effective “Flash” in the post, you want to come straight back towards the
person with the ball. You want to be very visible. So that means you want to have your hands in the air; show
them a target. You also want to be very verbal. You want to call for the ball and let them know that
you’re open so that they don’t miss you. And lastly, we want to make sure that we’re under control. We want to be on balance. When we catch the ball, we want to make sure
that we “Chin” the ball, that we’re in athletic position so that we’re not knocked off or
we don’t travel when we catch the ball. And one last element to remember when we’re Flashing back to the ball is to make sure
that we greet the ball. And what that means is that we have to be responsible for the last 10% of that pass.
We can’t sit back and let the ball come to us because the defender will step around us
and tip it away. So we want to make sure we take our hands out in front of us, really go out and grab
the ball, and keep running into it and then be on balance. As opposed to sitting back
and waiting for it. So remember, when performing the “Flash,” we want to Flash strong. We want to be visible. We want to be verbal. And we want to be under control. And remember to meet the ball so that we’re
not waiting for it to come to us. So that’s the “Flash” and it’s really a great way as a post player to get the ball in your
hands. And make sure to check out our future downloadable videos on post moves. Thanks for watching ShotScience and don’t
