what is an example of intercepting in a game

how can i intercept ? what are some things I would need to do to make it better and not fail?

Hi,

This link helps explain the basic principles of an interception. When going for an interception it is important you try to cut the line of the ball and do not intercept the ball AT the player as you are likely to cause contact. To improve your chances at intercepting the ball, firstly dictate your opponent. This means keeping your player where you want them, usually high up court away from their shooting end and wide towards the sideline. This will put pressure on both the ball carrier and attacker, making an error more likely. It is also important for you to maintain a narrow footbase so you can move off quickly to go for the interception.

Try not to think of missing an interception as 'failing' as each time you can learn from it - for example you may have miss timed your move or miss judged the speed of the ball for example. Regardless, it is crucial you keep confident and keep trying. It can be deflating missing an interception but quickly get back on your player and try again. Remember it only takes one interception to change a game.

Hope this helps.

thank you :)
