How Do you Rebound in Basketball?
What is the Purpose of a Rebound?
Basketball rebounds are important because they dictate which team has the ball. If there’s a rebound, the other team’s possession is over. If an opponent misses a shot, either of your players can grab the rebound and start another possession in their favor. If a team has been out of control, your players can be the reason they get a possession back.
So, to summarize…
Does a Basketball Need to Hit the Rim to be a Rebound?
It is true that rebounds can be recovered on shots that miss the basket and hit the ground. However, these situations are rare, and the player who gets the rebound is always the defender. So the rebound is not always a favorable situation for the team that missed the shot. If you miss the basket, and the ball bounces back and hits another player’s foot, that is a foul for the other team.
Can You Rebound Your Own Airball Shot?
A player can’t shoot an airball and catch it in the NBA because the rules require that he release it from his hand without contact before he can catch it within the restricted area. An exception to this rule is that he can catch a shot that he has made in the process of shooting, and not released the ball.
What is an Offensive Rebound?
Getting an offensive rebound on a shot is a critical part of a basketball game. The team that is up in score wants to reset the shot clock, so making a pass to the ball or catching the ball after is shot is important. However, if the ball hits the backboard or is an airball, the shot clock keeps running.
Offense is important to winning a game. The more points your team scores the more it has a chance to win. A rebound is essential if you are down. A rebound is an opportunity to score or an opportunity to help your team close the gap on the score.
What is a Defensive Rebound?
A defensive rebound occurs when an offensive team misses a shot and they get the ball after the defensive team has touched the ball.
If a team has fouled you and made you a foul shooter, the other team can take time off the clock with dribbling, passing, and overall good ball handling. Usually, towards the end of the game, the defensive team will then foul you to stop the clock if you got a defensive rebound with only a minute or so left in time.
Rebounding is an area where both offensive and defensive players can benefit, especially when the time is running down. Offensive rebounders can get an easy layup if the ball is passed to them and time is running out. Defenders can grab the ball and run it down the court themselves if the opposing team is looking to run a fast break.
Can Rebounds Occur on Free Throw Shots?
As a defensive player, you box out to keep you from rebounding. Box out means to block a person from getting to the ball and it is used when you have the ball on offense. During a free throw, the ball is usually a smaller ball so it is easy to box out. Offensive players use a hard ball so it is hard to box out. In basketball, box outs are hard to execute because the offensive player can easily box out you when he is jumping. Box outs happen when you try to stop a player from getting the ball.

I used to play a lot of basketball and I heard about this term recently. It’s an effective way of getting out of the way of a taller player who is trying to get a rebound. The tactic is for a shorter player to push the taller player out of the way to get a rebounding position. The tactic is especially effective when a smaller player is trying to get a rebound if the taller player is standing in their way. This tactic is known as “the over the back”.
