About This Play/Drill

This basketball out of bounds play is going to be run out of the box set. That means that you are going to have a player on each block and each elbow. To make this basketball play work you have to set a good diagonal screen. That way the defense either has to help on the screen and give up a shot on the flare screen or give up a layup. The player passing the ball in should look for the player coming off the diagonal screen, then the shooter off the flare screen, and then the big man opening up after he sets the flare screen. Must set good screens for this play to work. This play is from the 2011-2012 Gadsden State season
