Basketball Play of the Week

'Red' Baseline Inbounds Vs. Man Or Zone

2 initiates contact with the weak-side baseline defender and breaks to the weak-side short corner. This action is designed to draw the weak-side low defender out of the paint. 3, who should be your best shooter, sets up on the ball-side corner. 4 breaks up to the foul line and sets a backscreen for 5, who breaks toward the ball. 4 rolls back toward the weak-side low block and fills the space vacated by 2. 1 passes to either 4, 5 or 3 for a scoring opportunity.

A counter to this is that 3 (your best shooter) once again sets up on the ball-side corner and 2 rolls to the weak-side corner to draw the weak-side defender away from the paint. 5 breaks down the lane and sets a screen on the middle defender, pinning that player under the basket. As 5 sets the screen, 4 rolls behind 5 adn looks for a lob pass from 1.

I feel your best shooter #3 needs to set herself up and not just stay planted in cement
RED Baseline

It does spread the baseline defenders but there are two things that bother me about it. First there is no safety valve to throw the ball to if we can't hit the 3 options. Secondly, if there is a turnover there is no back defender which could lead to an easy layup for the opponent. We could work with the basic motion of the play but would have to cover the concerns. Thanks for sharing.

good movement to spread the defense
