• High Post Pass

  • Purpose

    Provides an offensive set that can be used against any type of defense, including a zone trap.

  • Drill Setup

    1 is at the top, 2 and 3 are on the wings, 4 and 5 are on the elbows.

  • How It Works

    1. 1 passes to 5. 4 X-cuts to the low post. 1 drops down to the side of the key opposite 5 and 2 and 3 drop to the corners to create a 2-3 look.
    2. 5 passes back to 1. 5 runs an X-cut to the opposite low block and 4 flashes to the middle of the lane near the free throw line to create a high-low look. 4 then replaces 5 and maintains the 2-3 look.
    3. This motion continues with the high post player X-cutting to the low post when the ball goes to the opposite side.

4 X-cuts to the block.

5 X-cuts and 4 flashes to the high post.

  • Coaching Tips

    The low post man should always change sides when a high post man receives a pass in the middle as this action will often result in him getting open.
