The University of Toledo men's team runs some phenomenal action under Head Coach Tod Kowalczyk. They are one of the most "set-driven" teams in the country. Out of 1,640 FGA in the 2017-2018 season, only 196 were in transition.
This diagram isn't 100% accurate to the formation/timing of the video clip below, but you can easlily see where my adaptations come from. I generally like to allow clips or actions to get my creativity flowing. When I see initial action that I really like, I will often build a 'series' of sets around that particular action. Check out my counters of this action:
Horns Floppy: Spain PNR Counter
Horns Floppy: Double Stagger Counter
This is a great set with some very quick decisions to be made by the defense. As you can see the end of result of this set is not a basket, and to be honest it isn't particulary great execution or spacing, but you can most certainly see the potential of this set. I am a huge fan of the floppy action, not so much for the guard coming off, but for the great sealing position the screener should be in. These are great opportunities to screen with bigger guards that can exploit mismatches as well.

The Mercury run their "Ear Tug" quick hitter to get one of the best shooters of all time, Diana Taurasi, a pin down from Brittany Griner. This set can be used to free up the guard, or to create a post iso.
"Sometimes your best 'post' is not a 'post' at all..."
This #EarlyOffense option flows out of a DHO and gets a guard cutting into the post area. Player 1 can facilitate or score from this area after establishing T-Post Position.
1 dribbles at 3 who gets a cross screen from 5 towards the paint.
1 enters to 5.
3 back screens 4 before getting a cross screen from 1 for 3pt shot.
1 should look to slip to the basket at times.
1 dribbles to the wing and looks for a backdoor cut from 3.
3 sets a backscreen for 5 to post up and get the ball from 1.
Upon post entry, 3 sets a backscreen for 1 who sets a crl screen for 2.
1 will sprint off of a screen by 3.
We use this shooting drill to work on our split cut actions when there is a post feed. We use coaches as extra passers in order to get more reps. We also always have a defender on the post player and will also progress to having the drill be 3v3. The defender will be instructed by a coach on how to guard the post. As the season progresses, we will let the defender choose and the offensive player will read the defense.

Sticking with the theme of PACE and SPACE, here is a quick hitter that the Houston Rockets run to get 5 man Ryan Anderson a look from three if the defense has to tag on the 1 (James Harden) on the Down Screen DHO Action.
