Default Give me advice!! please :)

Alrite, now i've recently really started developing my game. I play for my school team and start as backboard. Now theres two parts of my game i simply can't perfect and i'd really appreciate some advice.

Driving. I'm 6'2 or '3 (191cm/1.9meters/75inches, whichever scale you used) and weigh 'round 12stone which is about 75kg or 170lbs, now i don't mean to boast but i think i'm a pretty strong guy so i have the build issue of the driving tackled (i hope!) it's just the technique i can't get right, do i just barge straight through them or just really nudge my way past them?

Driving (on defense). I find it difficult to cope with somebody charging against me, now my team captain tells me to plant my feet and once the give me the knock to fall on the ground. Is this the only way of dealing with it?

Thanks in advance, Joe

well one thing you need to do if you cant get past your guy is when you drive you just want to go off your toes like a sprinter. on the defensive side i dont no what to tell you because that is the weakest part of my game.

i have no clue what ur talking bout....what i tink you should do is pass it to the point, or reset w.e. then wait for the open lane then drive...or just make a up fake, fade away so you wont get blocked and draw the foul if the man trys to jump at you
