Michigan State Spartans - L Option Post Up

When looking for coaches who run great sets to get the ball into the post, there are two coahces that are at the top of that list: Tom Izzo and Matt Painter. Both historically have had great post players that have been viable options offensivley for their teams. In the first play of the game after the game between Michigan State and Purdue from this past season, Tom Izzo runs this set to get arguably his two best players involved in the same action with Nick Ward and Cassius Winston. The primary option is to get the ball into Ward on the low block. The defense is also kept honest because the point guard has the option to come off a pin down from the 4 or come off the 5's baseline screen and look to enter the ball into the post. This set is great option in terms of keeping your best players involved in the same action, while creating oppurtunities to get the ball in the low post should that be one of the better options for your team. See the first clip of the game in video below. See More
