The in and out crossover move is a great dribbling move to use against a defender, and if mastered, it can be tough to guard. It is what is called a combo move because you are combining two moves. As soon as the defender goes to cut off the in and out dribble, you will immediately cross the basketball over and go the other direction.
This wall tennis ball basketball dribbling drill will help you work on the move and make your hands lightning fast. Basketball drills like this are also great for working on hand coordination and quickness.
