Late Game Situations

- Fouling at the end of a game
- Intentionally missing a free throw
- Rebounding an intentionally missed free throw when down by two points
- Rebounding an intentionally missed free throw when down by three points
- Full-court plays when you are down by two, three, or four with six seconds to play
- Communicating with teammates to save the ball out of bounds
- Tweaking your full-court press to get a 5-second call on your opponent inbounding the ball late in a game
- Creating side out of bounds plays that flow directly into your half-court offense
- Playing successfully underneath your own basket at the end of a game with various position options
So many games come down to a possession or two. Being prepared to attack these special situations can be critical to stealing games. Coach Martelli can prepare you for these situations which can be the difference between a winning season and a losing one. Rent this special situations DVD today.
