Creighton Bluejays - Stack PNR Away

Matt Wheeler 11/18/2020

Creighton starts this offense with the right side of the floor overloaded. Once 1 comes off the ball screen, this isolates 5 and 2 on the weak side of the floor to play off of a screen. #Top25XsOs: Honorable Mention Teams | Teams 25-21 | Teams 20-16 | Teams 15-11 | Teams 10-6 | Teams 5-1 *New customers use discount code SAVE10 at purchase* See More

Creighton Bluejays - Delay Pin DHO

Matt Wheeler 11/18/2020

Creighton is frequently able to use this play to get 5 open for a lob after rolling to the basket. After the entry to 5, 2 cuts off the screen from 3 and receives the handoff from 5. As 5 rolls to the rim, the help defense can only come off of 3. When the play is run quickly and you have a shooter in the "3" position, this action is tough to guard. #Top25XsOs: Honorable Mention Teams | Teams 25-21 | Teams 20-16 | Teams 15-11 | Teams 10-6 | Teams 5-1 *New customers use discount code SAVE10 at purchase* See More

Tennessee Volunteers - Floppy DHO High Low

Tennessee starts this action out of the Floppy set to get a post up off of the high low action. This puts 5's defender in a situaiton where they have to defend multiple actions and even step out on the perimeter before 5 ducks in for a post up. #Top25XsOs: Honorable Mention Teams | Teams 25-21 | Teams 20-16 | Teams 15-11 | Teams 10-6 | Teams 5-1 *New customers use discount code SAVE10 at purchase* See More
