Basketball Play - West Virginia Princeton Action

West Virginia Princeton Action

Dana Beszczynski 03/24/2017

West Virginia used this Princeton type action last night against Gonzaga in their Sweet 16 match-up. Carter runs off the FT line screen into a double stagger looking to catch & shoot off the pass from the TOK. If there's no shot, he has the option to throw inside and the 5 man's down screen or exchange with 3 can also lead to a Hi / Lo off the wing pass to the FT Line area. The play closes with a corner ball screen action when the post has no attack option to the basket and the PG makes the read shooting behind the screen. See More

Basketball Play - Gonzaga Hi / Lo Set

Gonzaga Hi / Lo Set

Dana Beszczynski 03/24/2017

The Zags have effectively used this Hi / Lo action all season and tonight to try and get and more action with their bigs to the ring they used it as well. Gonzaga has good size down low and this has been a very good action for them all season. The FT Line flash is perfectly timed as Collins comes hard to the ball side and receives the pass, with Williams turning his body for the Hi / Lo action. See More

Basketball Play - Gonzaga Box Low Post Iso

Gonzaga Box Low Post Iso

Dana Beszczynski 03/24/2017

Gonzaga fought off a furious challenge last night in the Sweet 16 from West Virginia. The Zags had difficult at times getting into their sets due to the relentless ball pressure applied from the Mountaineers. Here is a Post Iso action run from a Box set where they look to free up Karnowski off a simple back screen action in the lane. Gonzaga does a good job moving without the ball and opening up the cutting lanes as evident by the last frame here with the ball in the Post. See More

Basketball Play - Wichita State - Lob Play

Wichita State - Lob Play

Dana Beszczynski 03/21/2017

Wichita State ran this Lob Play in their 2nd round of the game against the Univesity of Kentucky. A very well conceived play with multiple cutting actions before the actual lob which gives nothing away. The cut down the lane by Shamet really sets up the screen as McDuffie clears to the strong side. The Shockers were a very underseeded team this year in the NCAA Tournament, but have a lot of potential coming back next year to make another NCAA run. See More

Basketball Play - Florida Gators ATO

Florida Gators ATO

Dana Beszczynski 03/21/2017

The Gators used this set out of a timeout in the 1st half against Virginia in Round 2 of the NCAA Tournament. The multiple ball screen action is very tough to defend and yields an open 3 pt shot to Robinson who broke out in Game 1 of the Tournament for Florida. Florida moves their personnel around the floor creating the best angles for screening and attacking off the dribble. See More

Basketball Play - Florida - Transition

Florida - Transition

Dana Beszczynski 03/21/2017

Mike White has taken the Florida Gators to the Sweet Sixteen this year and has done a masterful job putting his players in a position to play to their strengths. The Gators offense opens the floor and plays to opportunities for 1 v 1 breakdown actions with their talented guards. The Ball Screen is a big part of the Gators offense and this is a really good action. See More

Basketball Play - Virginia "5 Shake"

Virginia "5 Shake"

Dana Beszczynski 03/21/2017

This is an Offensive staple of the Virginia Cavaliers. This offense is so well run by the Cavaliers, they read everything so well and know how to move without the ball. Tony Bennett is such a defensive guru, but this Offensive action they run is really nice to watch and the continuity keeps it moving throughout the shot clock. See More

Basketball Play - Arizona - Motion

Arizona - Motion

Dana Beszczynski 03/21/2017

Sean Miller's Offensive sets are very creative, involve a lot of movement and do a good job changing sides of the floor. This Princeton type Motion Action invovles a lot of screening actions, incorporates two ball screens and forces the Defense to be aware of cutters and movements on the weak side. The opening action off the FT line elbow screen can yield a lob if the defender on the cutter gets hung up on the screen or is late trailing his man. Use also have the back screen Flex type cut for Trier which can get your 3 man a quick post-up or easy lay-up off the ball reversal step out from the 5 man. The play ends with either a SPNR or Step-up screen from the baseline. Well designed, easy to execute, but very hard to defend when utilizing a full shot clock. See More

Basketball Play - St. Mary's Misdirection Double Ball Screen

St. Mary's Misdirection Double Ball Screen

Dana Beszczynski 03/21/2017

This is a really well tought out set as the ball is entered on the break to the wing and then a quick screen on the trailing post leads to an early SPNR action to the open side. Fitzner can step out to shoot or roll depending on the defense plays it. If the 1st action isn't open, the ball is reversed and the passer sprints-to-screen on the ball, again a Guard-Guard action forcing the defense into a decision. If the PG cannot turn the corner, the 4 steps out to re-screen back to the two man side or the PG can attack down the lane. This is one of my favorite St.Mary's sets from Coach Bennett. See More

Basketball Play - St. Mary's - Gaels Horns Set

St. Mary's - Gaels Horns Set

Dana Beszczynski 03/21/2017

The St. Mary's Gaels do a very good job running their half court sets, with good patience, spacing, and ball movement, they make the defense really pay close attention especially off the ball. This set out of a Horns, is very popular at the European level right now and the first action gives you a chance for a quick hitter off the back door cut. St. Mary's has Jock Landale who can pop or roll out of the SPNR action which makes him a double threat and can open up the driving lanes for the guards too get in the paint and cause rotations, which then leads to kick-outs for their proficient shooting from behind the arc.

Basketball Play - South Carolina "Nail Play"

South Carolina "Nail Play"

Dana Beszczynski 03/21/2017

South Carolina does an effective job running the "Nail Play" looking to get Sidarious Thornwell a quick look at an open 3. When the look isn't there, the offense continues with the Big-Big cross screen looking for a quick strike in the Post. The Gamecocks finish the set off with two PNR actions forcing defensive rotation and an open lane for 1 v 1 action from Dozier. See More
