About This Play/Drill

Evansville Purple Aces Lob Play

Head Coach Marty Simmons has two of the most exciting players in the country in D.J. Balentine (#20 in the nation in scoring at 20.7 ppg) and Egidijus Mockevicius (#1 in the country in rebounding 14.0 rpg).
When you are looking to add some good set plays, the Missouri Valley Conference is the place to look.  
This Lob Play is a quick hitter that requires solid timing and good reads.  The screening action off the lane cut and the cut from the big off the TOK require good eye contact with the passer.

Nobody wants to have to face a team from the MVC in the NCAA Tournament as they have a history for being "Cindarella" at the Dance!
