Execution

  • O1 brings the ball over half court and signals the play side.
  • The Strong Side elbow should set a down screen for the player at the block, in this case O3. O3 pops to the wing and receives the pass from O1.
  • The weak side block player O2 should make a baseline cut to the strong side corner to clear out the weak side.
  • The weak side elbow sets a back screen for O1 immediately after the pass is made to the wing. O1 is often wide open for the layup if O3 has a passing lane.]
