This is a screen the screener play out of a Box Set. We generally tell players to know all positions for the sake of getting it set up quickly without worrying about who's in, but it's generally preferable to have:

  • PG/Ball Handler on the Weak Side Elbow (Safety)
  • 4 and 5 on the Low Blocks
  • 2 or 3 as the Inbound


O1, O2, etc means the "Option" that is preferred for the easiest look off the play. O1 = Option 1, etc. Where they would receive the ball is also shown on the diagram.

  • Weak side elbow(Op4) pops to strong side above the key as a safety.
  • Strong side block(Op1) screens up for the strong side elbow(OP3).
  • Strong side elbow(Op3) runs off the screen flashing to the ball, if not open pop out to corner.
    • 2-3 seconds after strong side block leaves, weak side block(Op2) leaves to diagonal screen for strong side block(Op1) (screen the screener).
  • Op1 uses the screen and flashes to the weak side, Op2 seals the man he screened using his inside foot with a reverse pivot.


Option Emphasis

  • 1-Man coming off screen to the weak side.
  • 2-Man sealing on his diagonal screen and coming back to the ball.
  • 3-Man popped out to the corner.
  • 4-Safety above 3 point line.
