Work on your speed, shielding. You can pass the ball when you eliminate an opponent or try to make a horizontal/diagonal run.

Work on your explosiveness and acceleration with and without the ball.

After you get past the defender you can't just try to jog away with the ball, you have to explode past them so fast they don't have time to catch up.

Check out the plyometric exercises in the training section.

speed isn't enough, you need to have acceleration. as was mentioned, check out the plyometrics section, that should help out a lot.
