Basketball Play of the Week
Triangle Baseline (Vs. Man)
This is an effective, multi-option addition to a triangle offense. 1 passes to 3 and shallow cuts to the right corner. 5 dives o the ball-side post and 2 slides over for reversal.
3 makes a baseline pass to 1 and cuts all the way through the lane. 3 keys 5 to set a ball screen for 1. 2 stays at the top of the key and 4 remains above the weak-side wing area.
While 5 sets a ball screen for 1, 4 simultaneously sets a flare screen for 2. 1 looks to either score, dish off to 5 on a roll or kick the ball to 2 for a three-point shot.
