Basketball Dribbling Tips & Tricks : How to Do a Half Reverse Dribble in Basketball

Uploaded by expertvillage on 02.02.2008

We talked about the reverse dribble. Now let's talk about the half reverse. This one is not
a particular favorite of mine simply because I'm not very effective at it. When I do it,
it's more like palming the ball. This move needs to be done quickly. It can be effective
getting your opponent to change up the direction of their defense and possibly catch them when
they're trying to read just to whatever move you're doing. The half reverse is going to
be again. If you're dribbling to your right side, you're going to switching to your left.
You're only going halfway, so at 90 degrees, you plant your left foot. Then you're coming
back. You're faking 90 degrees and then coming back with the ball. You're planting your left.
Let's try that again. You're coming down with your right. If you're coming down with your
right hand, you're planting with your left foot and then you're going about 90 degrees
to your back side and then coming back in that direction toward your defender.
