How To: Snatch back move

The snatch back move is almost impossible to stop; like every other counter, you’re using your opponent’s speed against him/her.

Keys for the move to be successful:

  1. Attack the basketball full speed (Don’t predetermine your stop). Attack to go all the way
  2. When the defender catches up, pull back quickly (only use one step)
