‘Money Triple’ play leads Arizona past Cal

No. 18 Arizona beat No. 25 California on Thursday, a thrilling game highlighted by a big second half from Wildcats senior guard Gabe York.

After being held scoreless in the first half, York finished with 19 points including two key 3-pointers in the game’s final minute. His biggest was a go-ahead 3-pointer with 17.9 seconds remaining to put Arizona ahead 62-61.

York said afterward the play that set up his game-winning shot is called “Money Triple.” It’s not an incredibly unique play, but Arizona ran it to perfection several times Thursday to free York for an open shot.

Video of the play is below (game winner starting at 2:23 mark). In it, you’ll see Arizona in a low 1-4 set. York (2 in the diagram) runs baseline, leading his defender through a gauntlet of screens. By the time the defender clears the screens, he’s a fraction of a second late in blocking the shot.

Sean Miller’s “Money Triple” illustrates the power of great screeners and a player with a quick catch and release.
