Featured play: '20 series'
This series is run from a 1-2-2 set with the top two players lined up wide at the foul-line extended. 1 brings the ball up as 5 downscreens for 3. 3 uses the screen and pops out to receive the pass from 1.
5 breaks up from the low block and sets a backscreen for 1. 1 makes a UCLA cut toward the basket. After setting the screen, 5 releases to the top at the right lane-line extended and receives a pass from 3.
3 breaks down and sets a screen for 1, who curls off the screen and pops to the wing area. 4 flashes into the lane. 5's options are to pass to 1 first, then look to hit 4 flashing in the lane or kick it to 2 on the weak side.
If the pass goes to 2, 3 breaks to the top of the key while 5 cuts toward the basket. 2 looks to hit 5 as he or she flashes to the basket or feeds 4 in the low post. If nothing is available, 2 can pass to 3 on top and reset the offense.
