Basketball Play - Down

Down

Adam Spinella 03/07/2015

Over the next few days we will break down some of John Wooden's favorite sets from his UCLA teams in the 1970s. Coach Wooden was incredibly accomplished, and the great leadership abilities he exhibited often overshadow the brilliant offensive contributions he has made. This play, which Coach Wooden called "Down", got an isolation post play for a wing after setting a down screen. See More

Basketball Play - Indiana

Indiana

Adam Spinella 03/07/2015

Coach Wooden preached ball movement from side-to-side, making the defense move frequently and never letting the ball settle. With lots of quick passes in 10 to 15 foot gaps, Wooden was a master at designing plays that forced his teams to share the ball. As a counter, many defenses would start to jump passing lanes or make perimeter passing more difficult. When that would occur, Wooden would run "Indiana", a backdoor set that played through the high post. See More

Basketball Play - Santa Barbara

Santa Barbara

Adam Spinella 03/07/2015

The final play from this John Wooden series is a set that Wooden used to run for a shooter to let them come off an exit screen. An exit screen, also known as a single-double, is where the shooter sticks their head under the rim and has the option to come off either side. One side will have one screener (the single side) and the other has two screeners (the double side). While Wooden believed in spacing and getting the ball inside, great shooters needed to be utilized and this set was one way he could feature some of his outside snipers. See More

Basketball Play - NC State Pinch Post

NC State Pinch Post

Wes Kosel 03/20/2015

NC State used this play early in the 1st half to get an open shot for Trevor Lacey. The play starts with an entry pass to the wing and a UCLA cut from 1 to the low post. Once 3 (Lacey) gets the ball at the top of the key, he has the option to pass to 1 for a shot or to pass to 4 flashing to the pinch post. If Lacey passes to 4, he loops around him at the elbow looking for a hand-off and a shot. See More

Georgetown 4 Around 1

Andrew Greer 03/20/2015

Georgetown ran this 4 around 1 set throughout their Round 2 matchup with Eastern Washington. The Hoyas used several different variations of the set utilizing the similar setup but unpredictable result. The action pictured is the base set. Dribble handoffs, double screens, flare screens, and back screens were all used out of this based set. Georgetown uses a 4 out 1 in look almost every possession and can run this set with interchangeable perimeter players. See More

Basketball Play - "Post"

"Post"

Keven Bradley 03/27/2015

This set provide several opportunites to get your 5 man a post touch on each block. If you have a point-guard that is comfortable posting up, this set is a great opportunity to get him an early post touch on the block. After the initial UCLA screen by the 5 man, the point-guard tries to get a post touch, but if he can't, he immediately goes into another UCLA screen for the 5 to get him back on the block. If the 5 isn't open on the block, the ball gets reversed to the point guard. The 4 man immediately sets a ball screen for the point guard to help get the ball reversed to the other side of the floor. The 3 will sprint across the lane and set a cross-screen for the 5 man and another post up opportunity for him on the opposite block. The 4 man will finish the play with a down screen for the 3 to the top of the key. See More

Basketball Play - BLOB - "Silver"

BLOB - "Silver"

Keven Bradley 03/27/2015

This is a quick screen-the-screen action designed to get you best shooter (2) an open shot on the perimeter. The 5 will UCLA screen for the 4; the 4 needs to read the screen; could have an opportunity to tight curl and get all the way to the rim. If 4 isn't open, he needs to space to the 3-point line and the 2 diagonal screens for 5 to the weak side of the rim, while the 4 finishes with a downscreen for the 2. The early UCLA screen by the 5 man to get the 4 man open, can be a mis-direction screen because you are trying to get a shot for your 2 man. See More
