This is a set the Belmont Bruins brought with them to the 2019 NCAA Tournament. It's a great set for a wing scorer to drive the ball against his defender. This set is part of a larger series of plays we will call "Nail". It's great set for a "stretch 4" or great screener who can shoot the 3.

This set starts with a wing/perimeter scorer on the nail with two bigs flanking him on the elbows. He exits to the side he prefers and catches on the wing.
The point guard clears to the other block, and Belmont wants the ballside post clear.
Both bigs rush over to set a tight double screen on the ballhandler to turn and attack or fill the top of the key.
The first double screener then turns back to set a flare screen for the second screener to cat a pass off the flare cut.
