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 - 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

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 - 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 - 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

Basketball Play - West Virginia - SPNP Action

West Virginia - SPNP Action

Dana Beszczynski 03/18/2017

West Virigina likes to run this action throughout the game especially with the luxury of having Adrian a true "stretch" 4 in the game. Carter (PG) has the option of either taking the UCLA screen or stepping back for a shot or drive. 2 (SG) Miles Jr. can then curl off the step out screen from Adrian and has the option to immediately come back and screen-the-screener (option in this set as well). The exchange on the baseline makes the defense turn their heads to guard and with Ahmad (SF) a strong presence also on the block, Coach Bob Huggins set play gets a lot out of their personnel.

Basketball Play - Bucknell Early Offense

Bucknell Early Offense

Dana Beszczynski 03/18/2017

Bucknell is a team with players who can play multiple positions, basically going 4 out 1 in and running a hard cutting Early Offense set here. Their hard cuts force the defense to react quickly and the kick-out pass is the most dangerous option as their shooters do a good job moving in space. See More

Basketball Play - Bucknell Isolation Action

Bucknell Isolation Action

Dana Beszczynski 03/18/2017

This simple set does not look like anything at first look, but what makes this isolation action so effective is the open space Thomas has to attack the basket off the back door cut from Mackenzie. The defense all goes to one side giving Thomas the chance to attack the paint, drop-off to the center or kick-out for the open 3 pt shot if the defense sags in. See More

MTSU - Blue Raider Slice

Dana Beszczynski 03/18/2017

Middle Tennessee State runs a variety of Offensive sets and they do such a good job reading the defense. Here is a signature action whereby using the back screen to clear a side for the ball screen where their guards can take advantage of their speed and attack or hit the big man Williams here for the 3 pt shot See More

Basketball Play - MTSU Transition Game

MTSU Transition Game

Dana Beszczynski 03/18/2017

MTSU became the nations team last year after upsetting Michigan State in the NCAA Tournament. This year as a very underrated 12 seed, they are back once again with a veteran team & Coach who gets every last ounce of energy out of his team. MTSU is one of the best Teams I've seen this year at "reading" actions and reacting off them. Out of this Transition set, they're able to get two ball screen actions which in any defensive scheme, is very hard to guard. See More

Basketball Play - Minnesota Double Drag

Minnesota Double Drag

Dana Beszczynski 03/18/2017

This DBL Drag action is well orchestrated as Mason is able to go right into a DHO with Coffey on the opposite side of the floor spreading the defense out. On ball reversal, the backdoor is opened up when Lynch relocates. Murphy with his ability to attack off the dribble drives the ball at the rim to the now open side of the floor. See More

Basketball Play - Northwestern Early Offense

Northwestern Early Offense

Dana Beszczynski 03/18/2017

What makes Chris Collins Offensive schemes at Northwestern are the multiple screening & cutting actions in each series. The sets are designed to get action off the ball keeping the Defense occupied, forcing decisions in rotations which if to late, result in open shots. This set has all those options included and is one of the best sets I've seen thus far in the NCAA Tournament. See More
