how to box out

Boxing Out: What It’s All About

A few weeks ago, I got a fan email from Kassandra and this was what she said:

 I’ve been cutting despite other’s desire to transition me to handler in the future because of my height. However, because I can usually catch up to the offense when they go deep, I find myself on the short end especially on the vertical battles.

I’ve heard the term boxing out a few times. Can you explain it to me, please?

I thought this was a great question and wanted to share with you what my response was.
