Initial Set-up: 1-3-1 alignment
Set begins with a pass to either wing.
1 immediately chases the ball and gets quick pass back from 2.
2 then sprints to the block. 1 waits for 2 to get there before passing to 3.
3 catches and takes a dribble toward the wing area. 4 screens middle defender of zone as 5 cuts to strong side block. Pass can come from 3 or 2 in corner if 2 does not have a shot.
