I've noticed that defensive wingers seem to go for the high ball with open palms more often than they used to. I suspect this is so that they can get as high above the attackers as possible. But it seems to be a high-risk strategy and often leads to a spilled ball. I was always taught to have palms facing me so you can bring the ball down to your chest. Any thoughts? Is it just bad technique or is there a legitimate reason for this?
