Basketball Play - Pitch Cross

Pitch Cross

FastModel Sports 04/15/2015

Pitch Cross provides a plethora of options that can be reads or calls depending on how your players progress. The basic look involves the 1 pitching the ball ahead to the 2 on the wing. The first look is always straight to the post for a quick bucket. If that is not available the 2 will then reverse the ball to the 4 who is trailing the play (usually due to taking the ball inbounds). After kicking the ball ahead the 1 shallow cuts and pops to receive the ball on the 2nd side wing. The 3 who ran the weak side wing settles at the block for a post up opportunity. If one does not present itself, the 3 then initiates cross screen down screen action by screening for the 5 who looks to post and receiving a down screen from the 4. The looks are to the post, to the shooter and if nothing presents itself whatever your motion principles are can kick in. For instance, if the ball hits the post and cutters dive and clear opposite ball reversal back to the 1 can initiate SPNR on the 3rd side. The same goes for a reversal to the 3 who doesn't have a shot. The 3 can then swing back to the 2 and again initiate SPNR action. See More

Basketball Play - Shadow


Justin Scanson 12/23/2014

Great pressbreaker to use against a relentless faceguarding press. The key is for the 4 to be able to make good, quick decisions. Touchdown pass over the defense to 2 cutting up the court will be available early. 5 can stay and set an open court screen for 2, but I think it works better to send 5 as soon as action starts.

Basketball Play - Stack


Alan Peel 10/29/2014

With teams deciding to press in the backcourt on sideline out of bounds plays, "Stack" gives a team a chance to get the ball inbounds and either set up their press offense, attack down the floor, or clear out and set up their halfcourt offense.

Basketball Play - Open Flare

Open Flare

Adam Spinella 07/24/2013

This is a great end of game play for a team to use in a Secondary Break. With about 7 or 8 seconds left on the clock, there is enough time to dribble up in the full court and engage in this action. Likely it has to be a practiced and a default set; if it were to be drawn in a huddle for a late-game play it is likely the defense would apply some sort of full-court pressure, meaning more time would be needed to execute the set.

Basketball Play - 2-guard Box

2-guard Box

Rory Hamilton 08/01/2017

Box is our 3/4 court press break vs. any odd front zone press. We always want to have a sideline, middle and reversal option. Even though our box is a little distorted, we always have a sideline, middle, reversal and throw over option. If we cannot pass to our sideline or middle player we reverse the ball and our middle player flashes sideline and our sideline player flashes middle. Players can utilize the dribble to improve spacing and passing angles anytime vs. the zone press. On any pass to the middle, the guard immediately looks to attack and create an advantage. See More

Basketball Play - Drill of the Day: 7 Person Press Drill

Drill of the Day: 7 Person Press Drill

Daniel Murphy 10/21/2013

One of the worst feelings as a coach is watching your team get pressed and turn the ball over. Conversely, when your press is wreaking havoc and you're getting easy buckets off your defense it's a GREAT feeling. If your team is not super athletic and you're playing an athletic team that employs an aggressive full court defense this is a great drill to prepare you for the tempo and speed of your opponent.
