When coming across the lane, the defense must play up on the low side. If they played high side, they would be conceeding a layup. Knowing that, make your catch, make a half turn and bring the ball from the shoulder straight up. Protecting the ball with your shoulders and free arm, make a 2 legged jump and release the ball high.
