1-4 High Alignment: Play can begin with a DHO with the wing or a direct pass. Once the guard has received the ball on the wing she must dribble to the slot area. The weakside guard comes to the other slot to receive a reversal pass. Quick Ball Reversal to the 5 man on the wing. The 2 comes off a shuffle cut looking to catch for a lay-up. The 3 cuts to the strong side corner and the 4 man pops to the top of the key for ball reversal. Quick Ball Reversal to the point guard on the wing. Screen the Screener action for either a lay-up or shot at the top of the key. 1-4 High alignment: Play starts with post player setting screen on the wing defender. The guard curls off the screen and fills to the corner. The post player then pops back for the entry pass. Once the post player catches, the opposite guard cuts high or low off the 5 players elbow screen. The point guard spaces away. The 5 player pops to the top of the key for ball reversal and quickly reverses the basketball to the wing. Screen the screener action for lay-up or shot at the top of the key. If the guard does not shoot the top of the key shot then post re-screens and gets right into roll/replace action.

1-4 Rip

Rory Hamilton 07/17/2018

Point guard dribbles to slot and passes to the 5 man popping to 3pt line. The 1 will receive a back screen by the 4 man and if defense does a poor job defending screen, the 1 man may be open. If not, the screener pops for ball reversal. Once the 4 catches the ball there is action on both sides of the floor. On the strong side, the 2 sets a down screen for the point guard. While this is taking place the 5 man is setting a fake screen on the 3 and then will receive a cross screen by the 2. The 4 passes back to the point guard who hits the 5 low for lay-up. If lay-up option is not there, the 2 man receives a screen from the 4 for a shot. See More

Basketball Play - High X Guard Entry

High X Guard Entry

Rory Hamilton 07/17/2018

1-4 High Alignment: Post players at elbow area and guards positioned in the gaps of the zone. 1st pass is to either guard. Once the wing pass is caught, the strong side post flashes to the short corner and the weakside post looks to flash to the elbow. The point guard spaces away and the weak side guard goes to the corner. Option 1: Hit the flashing post player at the elbow. On a catch the reads are: 1. Shot 2. Dump inside to buddy 3. Reverse pass to corner If the flashing post player is not open then she pops out and quickly reverses the basketball to either the point guard or the 2 guard in the corner. Once the point guard catches, she is taught to drive the inside shoulder of the zone to "freeze" the defender and then kick it out to shooter in the corner. The posts now "X" on ball reversal. If the 2 man does not have a shot, we run a drag dribble out of the corner to draw defender away from the short corner area occupied by our 5 player. If we throw to short corner area our reads are: 1. Shot 2. Buddy pass 3. Fan Opposite See More
