Cincinnati ran this press attack against a heavy trapping defense in their opening round NCAA tournament win. Watch in today's FastDraw Play of the Day, how the Bearcats use spacing and timely cuts to get an easy basket.
Start with 4 players high (above FT line) as shown. 1 cuts hard to receive inbound pass and anticipates a trap.
3 cuts toward the ball and receives quick pass back from 1.
2 stays wide on opposite sideline to receive quick reversal from 3, and pulling x4 up to the ball. 4 cuts to the basket.
2 takes advantage of the overplay by hitting 4 for the layup before the other defenders can rotate back.
