Help defending guys bigger than you.
I'm 5'10 and 136lbs, pretty skinny, and I usually play 1/2. But now on my new team, they want me to play 3/4 mainly because we dont have any tall guys, and i got a decent vertical.
We play a 2-3 zone, and I find I really cant stop the big guys from driving and scoring on me. The guys are usually at least a head taller than me and quite built, and I don't have the body to hold them out when they post on me, or even when they drive at me.
I find that I can usually intercept the passes into the big guys, and I can block them when i move across for help defence. But there's not much I can do when they got the ball and they're trying to score on me.
And I'm also weak rebounding and boxing out. Sometimes I try to draw charges but they just bump me a little and step around me, maybe cos I'm too skinny.
I was just wondering if you have any tips for me on anything I could do to stop them from scoring and rebounding so easily.
