In today’s video blog post, we are discussing the 7-Cut basketball play, a great option from the 4 out 1 in set. The key to this basketball play is getting the footwork right, so your cutter is able to seal his defender and get a wide open look in the paint.

In this drill, it’s important to make sure the player receiving the screen waits, and that the person setting the pick:

  1. goes hard and fast
  2. sets the screen
  3. goes wide > low > big

You want to see sharp and defined cuts….. game cuts.
