This series was added to the NHSBCA Playbook by Winning Hoops and comes from Coach Bob Baker at Ashland University in Ashland, OH. The objective of this series is to provide a quick scoring opportunity against an aggressive man-to-man defense.
If 3 is being guarded taking the ball out of bounds, 1 and 2 split. Simultaneously, 4 cuts hard to the corner while 5 cuts to the top of the key. 3 inbounds the ball to 4 and cuts hard to the basket off a back screen from 2. 4 passes to 3. 5 rolls to the opposite block to follow the shot.
If the defense is effectively denying the corner entry pass to 4, 4 and 5 can switch roles. If neither entry pass is open, use 1 as a release.
Another option is to inbound the ball directly to 5. The initial action is the same. After the ball is inbounded to 5, 4 moves up the sideline to back screen for 3 cutting to the basket. 2 back screens for 1. 5 has the option to pass to either 3 or 1 coming off the back screens. 4 rolls to the basket, 2 is the safety release.
If 3’s defender drops off into the lane, the initial actions remains the same. After the ball is inbounded to 4 in the corner, 2 down screens for 3. 4 passes to 3 for the open perimeter jumper. 4 and 5 roll to the basket for the rebound. 1 is the safety release.
