This is a motion entry play establishes Wichita State into a 1-4 High set. It's used to make the defense work prior to start a set offense or play.



  • O1 is your ball handler bringing the ball over half court.
  • O2 and O3 start at the block, flash to the elbow, then pop out to the wing.
  • O5 at the foul line sets a down screen for O4, then flashes up to the opposite elbow of O4.

This establishes your 1-4 High set and creates movement prior to running an offense or play. This makes it easier for O1 to initiate the offense.
