If you haven't worked at it then you're not at any point where you should be able to deke. Dekeing (sp?) is it's own skill. You could be the strongest, fastest or smartest player ever but that won't magically give you a skill you've never practiced. I have no hands so I cannot advise any deke learning methods but will say practice will get you there.

Surely you can still get in his way? No-checking doesn't mean no-contact. Push him around a little, throw off his balance and momentum so he can't go flying by you smoothly to finish his move. Don't dump him but disrupt his flow. Instead of getting mad try to figure out a way to play that move so you can stop it in the future.
