Best Answer

When the ball is lightly tipped, to make it fall on the other side of the net short.


When the ball is coming at an angle that you cannot tell whether it will be "in" or "out", always go for it.

The tip in Basketball is when the centers (positions, usually the tallest on the team) face off at the beginning of the game. They each try and tip the ball back to their own team and the team that recovers the ball after the tip gains possession of the ball
