About This Play/Drill

The 2013 NCAA National Champion Louisville Cardinals ran this play a ton throughout their NCAA Tournament run.  They utilized #10 Gorgui Dieng's ability to be mobile and make open mid-range jumpers in every single round in the NCAA Tournament.  After running a ball screen at the top of the key and throwing the ball back to the 4 man.  #3 Peyton Siva would come down in the middle of the lane and set the down screen for #10 Dieng.  As this was happening #11 Luke Hancock the Louisville 3 man would move into position to set a baseline screen for #10 Dieng.  He now had the option based on the opponent's defense to come off the Gut screen from #3 Siva or the baseline screen set by #11 Hancock.  In most cases he came off the gut screen and hit an elbow jumper.
