Well I'm a point guard, and i've been playing for about a year and i've gotten pretty good. I'm already better than 3/4s of my schools Varsity team. My question is how to beat a defender who is taller than you but just slightly slower but has long enough arms to block you from behind. I ask this because i always play my older brother who always beats me, and he's nice and all but i wanna eventually beat him. I can occasionally beat him of my quick crosover, but he knows its coming some times. And the only other ways i can beat him is of triple-threat and a step back jumper, but only sometimes. Any tips? and I also struggle shooting over outstreched arms, i know thats implied, but i just wanted to know if you guys had any special tips or anything. Thanks alot
I would try to develop a mid-range jump shot so he can get tighter on you, and then jukes and crossovers will be more effective.
