Skip Pass Basketball

Basketball Skip Pass

A skip pass is made by throwing the ball overhead with two hands, similar to a throw-in in soccer. Skip passes could also be made with one hand, but this is ill-advised as the results are usually slower and less-accurate.

Although skip passes are risky, they can be very effective if used correctly. For example, skip passes can be ideal methods of breaking down a zone defense by requiring the entire defense to turn around before reacting.
