Dribble the Basketball at Angles

When dribbling the basketball up the court, the player should use angles to their advantage.

Instead of trying to perform a great move on the defender to get past them, the player should concentrate on the following:

1. Keep the dribble low
2. Protect the basketball with their body and arm bar
3. Advance the basketball up the court using 45-degree angles

As pressure is intensified, the player should change directions and attack at another 45-degree angle.
