Basketball / Offense and Plays

Offensive Backdoor Play

This offensive basketball play works well for youth basketball teams of all ages and skill levels. When the defense is overplaying the passing lanes, the wing player can fake out his defender for an open layup by cutting behind him, otherwise called "backdoor". It's key to create enough space on the wing and around the basket so the help defense is too far away to recover.
