  • O4 and O5 make a crossing pattern with one going to the strong side block and the other to the weak side. You can organize this either way just make sure it is clear to the players who is going first and who is going second to avoid a collision.
  • The person on the top of the strong side stack in this case O1 should set a screen on the defender who is the furthest to the outside on the strong side.
  • The weak side top of the stack should follow the screener O1 for a look at a shot in the strong side corner.
