Hi, this is John McQueen here. I'm gonna talk to you today about how to pass the ball during a trap. In other words, how do you penetrate or break through a trap when two defensive players are trapping you, how do you handle the basketball? Well, the first way to handle the trap is to avoid the trap all together. On the basketball court there are eight trap zones, the corners of the court, and then the corners of half court are the trap area. So these are areas you want to avoid while playing basketball, bringing yourself to a stop, bringing your dribble to a stop and then holding the ball. The second thing is, you must hold the ball firmly, tightly and you must position your body between you and the defensive players trapping you. Next, you want to be able to pivot. You want to establish your pivot foot and be able to maneuver side to side in a semi-circle without moving your pivot foot, because then that becomes a travel. This is how to pass the ball during a trap, thank you.
