Default Basketball/Streetball terms used in your area?

Where ever you hoop at, their is always different terms for different types of moves or plays. What are the terms used in your area and name the area you play at?



Houston / Mission-Fort Bend

- Eat: When you shoot a jumper right in the opponents face.
- Wet: A jumper from anywhere on the court.
- Cookies: To steal the ball from the opponent; (only a straight up steals, no playing the passing lanes).

Middle New Jersey

Saucy: Hit a jumper in someones eye.
Eat it: To get fouled hard and get up without showing any signs of pain.

Texas State Rec Center

WOLF = when someone is sneaking up behind to steal the ball, you yell this to warn your teammate.. or when your teammate is dribbling on a fastbreak thru a crowd and theres someone behind him he might not know about, you yell this.

Clank - Same as a brick, off the rim.
Facial - Hitting it with someone in your face.
Pack - When you block someone nasty.
All Day - Not missing the whole game.

Man, forgot about another we use.


Houston / Mission-Fort Bend
-Nut Up: When the opponent blows an easy shot because of the intimidation factor. Also, when the opponent is constantly messing up (bad passes, turn overs, bad shot selection) because of the competition.

Yea I been to places like that too.. but thats usually for gyms that only got 1 court. My school has 4 (1 usually for volleyball though) so its never like that.

I like 15 by 1s and 2s. Win by two.. thats my style.
