Basketball Passing Windows

OzSwoosh Academy athletes help in demonstrating the concept of passing windows in basketball.

While there are many types of passing in basketball, here Coach Rowe discusses the 6 passing windows on an on-ball defender.

These are often used when making a penetrating pass or entry pass in basketball.
