You'll want to work on your backwards crossovers too. If you can't do backwards crossovers well then you'll never be able to keep up with a forward's lateral movements.

In the warmup for your next game see if you can pull a buddy over to help you with this. Have him fake coming inside and then cut outside to try to go around you. You'll need good backwards crossovers to keep up with him as he cuts inside, and when he's ready to cut outside you'll need to make a sharp turn and keep doing backwards crossovers in the other direction. If you stutter for a second you'll need to transition to forward skating quickly and gun it, since he'll be past you!
