This Post Up comes to us from Coach Lee DeForest at Basketball Coaches Club. For more on the complete Princeton Offense, get Coach DeForest's e-book, 'Winning with the Princeton Offense Basketball Guide,' (created with FastDraw). This excerpt takes you through the Chin Dribble Weave.
Frame 2: The 3 and the 4 pass across the top as the 4 passes the ball to the 2 on the wing.
COACHES POINT: 3 does not cut off 5 until ball leaves the 4. If the 2 is denied then 4 has the opportunity to dribble at 2 for the backdoor cut.
This is the start of the screening action that makes this play successful. 5 sets a backscreen for 3 cutting to the rim for a layup then immediately goes to set a flare screen for the 4. 2 looks for 3 for the layup or the 4 man off the flare screen
Frame 3: If the 2 has no passing options then the ball is dribbled up back to the guard spot. The 1 fills the guard spot to receive the ball. The 4 after the flare cut, finishes the cut to the rim looking for the ball, then fills the wing position vacated by 1. The 3 fills up to the wing spot.
Frame 4: The action continues to the other side as the ball is reversed from the 2 to the 1 to the 4. The 2 makes a weakside UCLA cut off the 5 to the rim looking to score.
The continuity continues until a shot is taken or a shift to another phase.
