About This Play/Drill

After examining two plays that Wooden runs to get layups or post touches, Wooden needed a way to attack teams that would sag into the lane and dare his team to shoot elbow jumpers. While Wooden didn't coach in an era of the three-point shot, the use of the outside or mid-range shot was crucial because it would open up the lane further. Wooden ran this play, called "Kentucky", to open up a shot on the wing for one of his guards coming off a double screen.
