Circle Up Clear Out - FastModel Sports

About This Play/Drill

In this diagram and embedded video we look at a set play to clear out the defense for a drive from the point guard. This is kind of like the barking dog play - "hey, look over here so we can do something else." If the circle up draws enough attention, it may work every once in a while. This is best used in a series of plays that all start out of this alignment, with this play being more of a "special" for end of quarters.
