Basketball Plays Izzo ATO

3 Options for a quick hitter from the Michigan State Playbook that you can run after a timeout or save to run late in a tight game. If you run this type of “Iverson Cut” clear out already, then hopefully this will give you something to add if the defense takes that away.

    Question about this offense “Zipper Option 1”
    If 3’s man is in proper defensive position after the cut through, how will 5 be open on the back door cut when the ball is passed to 5?

      Hi Coach,

      The play depends on the level you coach, how good of a three point shooter 3 is, and how you define proper defensive positioning. If 3 is a threat, like high level D1 players would be, then I would say 3s defender would at closest straddle the lane line which would put him behind 5 on the cut. If 3 is in a position between the ball and 5s cut, then, 5 can screen him in and 3 should be wide open.
