    I wish you could see my buddy post up. He is 5'9 a junior in high school and is one of the best posts in the state. For one he gets extremely LOW. He has a wide base that helps him also. He has mastered basically every post move known to man lol. On a taller defender, he likes to use a quick spin move into the middle and finishes with a reverse layup. The important think is to start low and stay low while you make your post moves. Try an up and under, or some pump fakes to try to get your taller defender up in the air. Hope I helped.
