attempt to fake out the defender just like you would on a jumpshot. go up for the layup and bring the ball up high with both hands (grip it tightly) and right when the defender jumps and swings his arm to block it , swing the ball down in a circle (clockwise or counter) this point the defender can no longer block it so now bring the ball back up and lay it up as you always would... and dont be afraid to get bumped becuase more than likely the defender will either back up so a foul isnt called, or he will bump you hard which will cause a foul anyways!
