The Arizona Wildcats really do a tremendous job of moving their players around in their half court sets.
Here is a multiple ball screen action which given the Defensive positioning can lead to a backdoor cut or open up the direct drive to the ring.
If the Defense sags in on the penetration, the Cats have their shooters spotting up behind the arc ready for a kick-out pass.
1 (#5 Allen) comes off the middle ball screen from 5 (#14 Ristic) who pops out after screening
4 (#10 Markkanen) flashes to the elbow
1 (#5 Allen) reverses the ball to 5 (#14 Ristic) and cuts to the weak side corner
2 (#1 Alkins) lifts out of the corner creating space for the cut
3 (#35 Trier) begins lifting to the wing for the pass and has the "option" on the defensive read to cut backdoor
If 3 (#35 Trier) catches the ball
4 (#10 Markkanen) steps out to the TOK
5 (#14 Ristic) will sprint-to-screen and roll to the baseline
3 (#35 Trier) looks to attack off the dribble in space
*multiple passing options if the defense collapses in the paint on the drive
