Featured play: Slant 1-3-1 quick hitter

This play is run out of a 1-3-1 set with 1 bringing the ball up. 3 and 2 are lined up wide on each wing. 5 is positioned on the left elbow and 4 is set up on the left low block. 3 V-cuts toward the basket and pops back out to receive a pass from 1. After 1 passes, 1 cuts to the ball-side corner. As this is happening, 5 breaks hard and sets a downscreen for 4. 4 uses 5's screen and curls to the top to receive the pass from 3.

3 runs directly at 4 and takes a handoff from 4. After securing the handoff, 3 curls around 4 and drives down the lane toward the basket. 3 can either shoot a layup, dish to 5 sealing on the low block or kick the ball out to 1 or 2 for a 3-point shot.

Gene Keady, formerly of Purdue University, Lafayette, Indiana
