About This Play/Drill

In his first year as head coach of the WNBA's Las Vegas Aces, Bill Lambier was given a tough task: effectively blend the offensively post play-minded games of 2018 Rookie of the Year A'Ja Wilson and newly acquired All-Star Liz Cambage.

With 18.6 seconds remaining in the second half and leading the Connecticut Sun by 1 point, Coach Lambier calls "Thumbs Up" as an end of time score. The play demonstrates an effective use of an offense that desires to optimize two talented post players. The play is a quick hitter that begins with a high ball screen and can lead to a low post lay-up, or a three-point opportunity. The play can be successful for end of time situations, and contains easy actions for a play call after a timeout.
