Basketball Play of the Week
2 Over/3 Over
If you call 2 Over, then 2 runs off a double baseline pick (3 Over is for 3 to execute the action). In the diagram, 2 Over is called, so 2 runs off a double pick from 4 and 5. 1 passes to 2 on the wing. 4 comes to the free-throw line and sets a backpick for 1. 1 cuts hard to the hoop. 2 tries a lob pass to 1 if 1 is open.
If 1 is not open, 2 passes to 4, who has popped to the top of the key. 1 comes out of the lane to the opposite wing, so 4 can reverse the ball. Once 4 passes to 1, 4 and 2 set a double screen for 3 while 5 cuts hard across the lane. 1 has the option to hit 3 at the free-throw line for a jumper or 5 in the post.
