Last week, I sent out a request for my newsletter subscribers to send in their best [tag]offense basketball[/tag] [tag]play[/tag].Â Check out this one below sent in by Barb (very creative!).
Here is a [tag]basketball[/tag] [tag]offensive[/tag] play I call “Pop” that I run:
Players 2, 4, 5, and 3 line up, in this order, about 1 to 11/2 feet from the baseline.Â Positions 4 and 5 are right outside of the key and Positions 2 and 3 are right inside the 3-point mark.Â Position 1 is a 1 foot past half court.
On 1’s signal, all 4 players flash high (up to a little past the foul line).Â 1 looks to pass to 4 or 5.
If 1 passes to 4, 4 pivots and looks to hit 2 who is cutting and does a backdoor to the basket.Â If not open, see step below.
1 cuts behind 4 to receive pass (right outside the 3-point line).
In the meantime, 2 and 5 double screen for 3; 4 looks for 3 if position 2 was not open.
If positions 2 or 3 are not open, 4 passes back out to 1 to regroup and start the next offense.
You can execute this [tag]drill[/tag] on opposite side (i.e., passing to Position 5), just reverse everything.
