About This Play/Drill

Shaka Smart used this spread look that he called "5" from the sidelines against Ohio State when they went to a 2-3 zone in the 2nd half have of their Round 2 matchup. At this point in the game VCU was playing with no true post against the OSU zone. Utilizing a high ball screen on the top of the zone, VCU was able to attack the middle with little resistance. When the guard stepped down to help Doug Brooks hit multiple 3's from the 2 position in the offense. Ohio State switched back to man after the barrage of Brooks 3's following middle penetration from VCU guards.
