When a ball has gone by you, the worst thing you can do is to reach back and try to retrieve it. We call that move "the phantom hand." A teammate has a bead on the ball and is just getting ready to pass it, when this phantom hand reaches in from nowhere, and the ball disappears, generally at some strange angle.
So trust your teammates to be in position to back you up ... and don't reach back. Don't let the phantom hand haunt YOUR team.
