"Middle" Option from the Princeton Offense Point Series. Check out the diagrams + video below ft. the San Francisco Dons!
Classic Princeton Offense alignment with 1 advancing the ball with inside hand.
2 must cut behind his/her defender and in front of the center (5). This creates a bit of traffic that helps enter the ball to 5
1 enters to 5
3 drops to corner
Based on how they are being defended Player 1 has the options of cutting over, middle or screening away
X1 takes away the "over" cut
1 cuts middle
5 may be able to hit 1 on back door
With no backdoor available, 1 continues cutting and exits the lane off pin screen from 3
1 may be able to catch and shoot by fading to corner
1 may also continue to cut and take DHO from 5
