A flare screen wrinkle to the Flex Offense
Instead of the backscreen, downscreen action of the traditional flex, the flex screener arcs wide and flare screens for the high elbow.
Begin in 4-out alignment with ballside triangle
Rule: pass from high elbow to wing triggers a screen away
1 screens for 4
3 passes to 4
Rule: Any pass from wing to high elbow triggers a weakside flare screen.
On the flght of the pass from 3 to 4, 2 sprints into the flare screen for 1
2 then fills high elbow
4 passes to 2
Rule: the high elbow to high elbow pass triggers the flex & flare action
5 steps out to back screen for 3
3 runs flex cut
5 immediately arcs out wide and flares for 4 at the high elbow
If 2 fully reverses to 1 they screen away (rule)
On the pass from wing to high elbow, a weakside flare is set
on the high elbow to high elbow pass the flex & flare action is triggered
