From Glen in Calgary, AB:
I've always been smaller than my friends, I stand at 5-7. I was wondering how a small guard can learn to work against bigger players.
If you can develop a good shot, you can extend the defence, and then create more space behind the defence. The other thing to do is work on a floating shot if you are an advanced player. That way you can shoot before you reach the big shot-blockers. A pull-up jumper will also bring the big guys out, and open up passing lanes for teammates. I also like to jump stop and pump fake. If the big guys leave their feet, draw the foul, or pass to a teammate. Good luck.
