  • Hey, this is Chase from and today I'm going to talk to you about the "Flash."

  • The "Flash" is used by the post player to gain possession of the ball away from the

  • basket, or to create space from their post defender.

  • To have an effective "Flash" in the post,

  • you want to come straight back towards the person with the ball.

  • You want to be very visible. So that means

  • you want to have your hands in the air; show them a target.

  • You also want to be very verbal. You want

  • to call for the ball and let them know that you're open so that they don't miss you.

  • And lastly, we want to make sure that we're

  • under control. We want to be on balance.

  • When we catch the ball, we want to make sure that we "Chin" the ball, that we're in athletic

  • position so that we're not knocked off or we don't travel when we catch the ball.

  • And one last element to remember when we're

  • Flashing back to the ball is to make sure that we greet the ball.

  • And what that means is that we have to be

  • responsible for the last 10% of that pass. We can't sit back and let the ball come to

  • us because the defender will step around us and tip it away.

  • So we want to make sure we take our hands

  • out in front of us, really go out and grab the ball, and keep running into it and then

  • be on balance. As opposed to sitting back and waiting for it.

  • So remember, when performing the "Flash,"

  • we want to Flash strong.

  • We want to be visible.

  • We want to be verbal.

  • And we want to be under control.

  • And remember to meet the ball so that we're not waiting for it to come to us.

  • So that's the "Flash" and it's really a great

  • way as a post player to get the ball in your hands.

  • And make sure to check out our future downloadable

  • videos on post moves.
