This backdoor set comes from the Townsville Fire of the WNBL in Australia. A couple coaching points: 2 must time it well to begin walking defender up the arc to make sure she gets high enough so on the cut she is above the block. PG attacks right at 2 defenders to get her to react to the ball so 2 can back cut. PG passes as 2 starts the cut. Video clip below.
