Center : Usually only one on a team and is the ____________ player. Responsible for everything that happens under or near the basket, both on offense and defense. Plays : Give and Go : This is when one player ____________ the ball to a teammate (give) and slashes to the basket (go). If he/she is open they should receive a pass back for an easy basket. Pick and Roll : Is when an offensive player stands in the way of the ____________ player guarding the player with the ball (pick). The player with the ball should dribble very close to the teammate setting the pick so that the defensive player cannot follow them and runs into the pick. When the defensive player runs into the pick, the player setting the pick turns away from the ball, pivoting (roll), and makes a cut for the basket. If they are open, they should receive a pass from the ball handler. V-Cut : In P.E. class, this was a motion where a player from the wing (off-guard) ran to a point in the paint just in front of the free-throw line. If they were open they received a pass. If not, they cut to the other wing position and set a pick on the defensive player at the wing. This motion of running from one wing position to the paint and then cutting back out to the other wing position should look like a “V”.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
