- Two player on block on play-side. We designate play-side with the person bringing the ball up the court calling the play verbally while holding a number in the air with his play-side arm.
- One player on off-side wing, one player on off-side block or short corner.
- Top player of the two on the play-side block will set a screen on the underneath player's man.
- If the defensive player attempts to follow the player undeath, he should curl around the screen into the paint ready to catch and score.
- If the player reads that the defense plays underneath the screen, he should step out for the open shot.
- If the screener notices both defensive players follow the cutter, he should either slip to the basket or fade out for a shot.
