Stephen F. Austin and coach Brad Underwood were very aware of who they were -- they had a great lead guard in Thomas Walkup. By putting the ball in his hands and making a 1-4 high set look like a clearout for him to go to his strong hand, defenses were sucked into reading the action for him. Instead of running a set to clear out on his side, Underwood ran lots of traffic through the lane, getting all four help defenders to stand in the lane at one point. When the chaos cleared, what was left was an empty weak side, a perfect opportunity for a lob at the rim. By using their best shooter as the screener, there was no opportunity for the play to be foiled.
Starting in a 1-4 High set, 1 dribbles over to his right. 4 loops over the top of 5, and both wings cut toward the basket.
5 then sets a back screen for 4 to run off into the corner. 2 follows behind him, clearing all the way to the corner
3 loops around and sets a back screen for 5 to get to the rim
