Defensive Drill that teaches the player to slide his feet and stay low to the ground.
Foot width defensively is very important. It allows a player to change directions quickly, pivot qucikly and rebound effectively after a strong pivot. This is all accomplished with a wide slide, not a narrow stance. Crossing your feet is an absolute NO defensively.
More advanced players can take advantgae of defenders very often, players who do not understand this skill. No athlete, no matter how quick and athletic can recover quickly defensively if he crosses his feet. A quick cgange of direction (back door cut) against a defender who is in this vulnerable position will result in an open player.
Study your defender's foot movements. When they cross their feet, change directions.
