The variety of sets VCU runs in a single game gives their offense a chance to score on every possession.
What makes the VCU Rams such a tough team is their execution in the half court and the ability for their guards to handle the ball.
In this set, you have the Over / Under cut whch can be used to set-up your shooter or get post entry off the diagonal backscreen for the 4 man.
VCU also does a good job reading the defense with quick ball reversal, they are able to finish the set with a middle ball screen setting up penetration in the lane causing the defense to rotate.
