In Basketball, an Alley-Oop is an action performed by two players where one player tosses the ball in the air, either towards the Hoop or towards the second player, and the second player goes for the Dunk mid-air. When executed correctly it can be a devastating move and will guarantee your points.

In performing an Alley-Oop, you can either be the one Tossing the ball or the one Dunking the ball. Below are the steps you will have to do to execute the Alley-Oop:

Things to Keep in Mind for Alley-Oops

For the best chances of executing an Alley-Oop, you will need a good Passer and a good Dunker on your team. As you are going for the Alley-Oop, make sure that the path towards the Hoop is clear for the Dunker, and also the pass must be given at the optimal angle. An Alley-Oop is a timing-based move so the Passer and the Dunker must be in perfect sync else it won’t work. You equip badges like Lob City Finisher and/or Lob City Passer depending on the role you are going to play. Obviously, having NBA characters with a high dunking rating will be advantageous than not. Also, make sure your MyPLAYER has either high Driving Drunk attribute or has a high Passing Accuracy attribute.
