The V- Cut is a technique that is used to get open in basketball.  Youth basketball players are often challenged with getting space from the defender to receive a pass.  The V-Cut is designed to make a quick move away from your position and quickly move back to the area to receive the ball.   The cut has to be done quickly and with authority to pull the defender with you so when the player cuts back the defender is left behind and the offensive player is open to receive the pass.
