I'd suggest doing something like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qw0J44IOh8s
When I try to pull that off, I drive really fast, pump fake near the bottom of the backboard on one side of the rim, and do a babyhook(?) while gliding under the rim, and finishing with one hand.
Sometimes, when I get the cut right under the rim, I power dribble hard, go straight up and sneak the ball in.
yea I think my technique was wrong because I would get the ball caught between my defender. Also how to control yourself in the air.
