A move where a player moves to the player defending them, then quickly turns and receives the ball; used to fake the defender.

A V-Cut is a common type of cut in basketball where an offensive player cuts back toward the wing or perimeter to get distance from a defender. The action itself is pretty simple, with a player starting on the perimeter, then moving toward and into their defender before releasing back out to the perimeter to receive a pass after freeing themselves up through the cut. It can be performed in two variations: 1) a more shallow cut not reaching the paint or 2) a deeper cut where the offensive player takes their defender down towards the low block before making the cut back out to the perimeter.
