Provides an offensive set that can be used against any type of defense, including a zone trap.
1 is at the top, 2 and 3 are on the wings, 4 and 5 are on the elbows.
How It Works
1 passes to 2 and 5 drops down to the low post. 4 comes across to the ball-side high post.
2 can pass to 5 in the post. If not, he reverses to 4 who pops out.
With this pass, 5 flashes to the middle of the lane. 2 drops to the corner. 3 drops to the opposite corner and 1 comes down to the side of the key – creating a 2-3 set.
4 skip passes to 3 in the corner. 4 follows his pass and posts up on the ball-side low block. 5 moves to the middle of the lane near the free throw line to create a high-low pass option. If he doesn’t get the pass he bumps out to fill 4’s old spot and the wing player drops down to the corner to create the same 2-3 look.
Now 3 passes to 1 who skip passes to 2. 1 follows his pass to the low post and the motions repeat.
The action starts off with a wing pass.
4 follows his skip pass into the low post.
On a skip pass, always follow your pass.
In this offense, players should always think “leave and replace” – if a player leaves a spot another player fills it.
