    When the top guard dribbles out the wing, the dribbler may decide to attack the basket to score or pass from isolation.

    SIDE

    When the top guard isn't able to pass the ball to the wing, we dribble at the wing to initiate the backdoor cut.

    Triangle

    Our primary offensive set. Quick internal and external cuts are crucial. If any other play dissolves, we run this.

    PYRAMID

    Whenever the top guard makes a ball-side cut, we initiate this cross-screen / down-screen action.

    RIGHT

    Whenever the pass is entered into the top inside player, a backdoor cut by the open-side wing takes place.

    LATERAL

    When the player on the wing is unable to reverse the ball, the top guard sets an on-ball screen.

    180

    On a wing dribble-out, the wing may choose to forego their backdoor cut in place of taking the handoff instead.

    THREE

    With wings overplayed, we run through 3 sets of curl screens. If nothing, the fourth curl becomes Lateral into Triangle.

    TANGENT

    The point guard attempts to get double-teamed by penetrating off a double screen to create an array of options for others.

    SCALE

    When teams over-deny our wing entries or reversals, we run this to keep them honest.

    With wings heavily denied, the top guard dribbles-out to the lane-line to initiate a wing-to-wing cut.

    B.O.B.

    From a box set, the strong side guard chooses who to screen, then the other players screen and cut accordingly.

    exit
  • image14 S.O.O.B.

    S.O.O.B.

    From a box set, we screen and cut hard to give the in-bounder several options. Safety is for the closest guard to seal.

    exit
  • image15 Press
    image15

    Press

    Our press break requires accurate spacing, awareness, patience, solid screens, hard passes, and quick cuts.

  • image16 Zone

    Zone

    Against zones, players read the defense to find the open spaces. This is a merely a template for where to stand and cut.
