Coach Shaka Smart has his VCU Rams (21-6, 11-3) and they are better prepared for any A-10 opponent. Here is a special zone offense play that they run. Havoc Pressure Defense is what Shaka Smart is known for.
Execution is what I know Shaka Smart for. The first diagram is "Special" which is a zone quick hitter. The 2nd and 3 diagrams are the "Weave" Play zone set play.

Tied 72-72 with under 20 seconds left to play Pittsburgh ran a stagger action that free’d up #3 Cameron Wright for a wide open mid-range jumper to win the game. #3 Wright missed the shot, but Pitt went on to defeat Horizon League member Oakland in overtime. A small part to this action that I really liked was when the 1 passed the 4 man as he navigated down to the block the 4 showed his hands to the 5 man at the elbow as if he was expecting a pass for a shot. Even if he wasn’t an option in the play his attention to detail caused his man to at least play him as a threat which created a better angle for his pin down screen for the 1 man.
Among the many things the Brooklyn Nets did well in their Game 1 victory over the Toronto Raptors was this great quick hitter set dialed up by Coach Jason Kidd in the waning moments of the 2nd quarter. With 1:13 on the clock in the 2nd, the Nets were able to get a wide open lay-up (Option 1) to increase their lead to 5 points. I added in the 3rd Option to create another scoring opportunity.
Michigan State ran this Elbow Ball Screen set in their win against Harvard in the NCAA Tournament. The first option of the set is guard Gary Harris coming off down screen. The next option is Denzel Valentine who comes off a backscreen, looking for a pass at the basket. The final option is a ball screen where the 4 (Branden Dawson) sets a high ball screen for Gary Harris. Dawson rolls automatically to the basket but its up to Harris to drag the screen until Dawson is open at the basket.
Viriginia ran this quick hitter in the ACC Championship game against Duke on Sunday. Virginia runs this set looking to get one of their guards a backdoor cut at the basket. UVA does a great job in their motion offense staying patient and looking for great shot on each possession. Their patience and hard cuts will leave the defense suseptible to backdoor cuts.
This elevator play is designed for a shooter to come off a misdirection cut back up the lane line to where he came from thru an elevator. What makes it so seductive for the shooter is that the elevator wasn't there when he made his original cut, so when he retraces his steps and comes thru the elevator, the defender will be blindsided by it.
This is our entry into the little-big back screen that the Utah Jazz used with John Stockton and Karl Malone back in the day. You may be able to get the ball to the 2 on the first basket cut, but more often than not the x5 defender will be sagging on the back screen, leaving 5 open to catch on the wing. If your 5 isn't a shooter, you may want to change up personnel to avoid allowing that defender to play off the ball and take away the entry to 4.
Transition play to get a quick shot off a curl from a pindown with a handoff or dribble hand off counter. If 1 throws the ball ahead to 2 and 2 can't feed 5 in the post, a trailing 4 can set a weakside pindown. If 3 is not open on the curl, then 4 steps back to the ball and plays a two man game with 1.
The Pacers ran this set in a late clock situation right before the end of the First Half in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals vs the Miami Heat. #21 David West with a textbook example of ducking in, sealing a defender. This play didn't result in a basket as West missed an open lay-up. But the job he does of going along the baseline, then coming back towards the rim sealing they switching defender was tremendous.
This set was run at the end of the break.
4 is in low blocks. 3 is wide on weakside
2 runs a rub cut off the 5 man looking for ball from 1
1 enters ball to 5 at high post
After 1 hits 5, there is some misdirection
4 begins to screen for 2. 1 steps in to set the top of the staggered double screen for 2.
1 does not actually set the screen. They slip to the rim looking for the ball and get ready to screen again
5 executes a dribble handoff with 2
As the handoff is occurring, 1 and 4 are setting staggered screen for 3.
After handing off to 2, 5 sets the 3rd screen in the staggered screen for 3
On the handoff, 2 tries to turn the corner to the rim
or looks back to 3 coming off the triple screen.
After screening, 1 pops to wing. 4 and 5 are looking for slip opportunities if the defense cheats on the staggered screen
