One of the most common actions we faced at the recent FIBA U17 World Championship was Horns into Flex sets. Almost every nation we faced had their version of this.
The ones drawn up today are by the Spain team who we faced in the quarter finals. I liked thier three seperate reads that they would generate out of the action, each look depending on what they needed at each stage of the game.
Horns is still the most commonly used action in youth international play, but this campaign compared to the last saw a lot more flex action out of it.
O4 and O5 start on the elbows, O1 passes to O4 and cuts off O5 rub screen
As O4 passes the ball to O5 who releases to above the 3 point line, O1 sets a flex screen for O2 who looks to score off the cut
O4 then sets down screen for O1 to come off looking for their shot
If O1 can not catch and shoot, O2 and O5 sets staggered screens for O3 to come off for final shot
As O1 sets the flex screen for O2, O4 holds onto the ball
O1 then cuts for the hand off from O4
O4 flat screens for O1 allowing baseline penetration, while O5 sets a down screen for O2 to come up for the shot
O5 would slide down to low block as O4 received pass from O1
O2 would then flex cut off O5 screen
O1 would follow their pass and get it back off O4
O5 set a cross screen for O2 and O4 set a clean up screen once the handoff had been made to O1
O2 would cut off the two screens looking for a 3 point shot
