#5 Louisville Cardinals from their game against Illinois State
The Cardinals did a good job moving the ball on this play looking to either isolate Siva for a three pointer or get the ball inside to one of their big men.
The opening action is a good misdirection moving the defense away from the single baseline screen which Siva uses to get free.
Smith brings the ball up the left side of the floor and sets up the defender as he comes off a double high ball screen. Behanan rolls into a screen for Siva who is running baseline and timing his cut. Price rolls off his screen to the post looking for a possible feed from Smith. Blackshear comes behind Smith as he's going off the screens filling at the top of the 3 pt line
Smith reverses the ball in this action who throws to Siva coming off the baseline screen from Behanan - Siva times his cut to come off the screen with the ball reversal. Siva has the option to shoot if he's open or dump into the post
In this action, Siva does not have a shot or a post pass. Price sprints into a wing ball screen with Siva and rolls to the basket. Behanan fills the vacated wing area from Siva and looks for ball reversal pass from Siva
Siva comes off the screen and throws back to Behanan filling the wing area. Behanan had an open look at a 3 pointer, but with the defense sagging back, he penetrated to the middle of the lane.
*Louisville had good spacing on this play and Smith & Blackshear were spotting up for a possible kick-out pass
