Work on your virticle leap. The higher you can jump, the easier it is to block. Wait till the ball leaves the hands of the shooter and is in the air, then jump. Make it a quick reaction to the shot. Even getting just a small piece of the ball will deflect the shot. Don't worry about getting your whole hand on it.

You can block a shot from any direction as long as you do not make contact with the person shooting the ball. That is a shooting foul.

It is when another player knocks aways the ball (that has been shot) before it has a chance to reach the basket
