This is what Coach Hamilton had to say about the press attack.

Press Break Alignment is with 3 man taking ball out-of-bounds and the 1 and 2 are at the elbows. The post players 4 and 5 are at half court. We use 4-up press break vs. any on the ball zone presses (1-2-2, 1-2-1-1, etc).

It starts with our ball side post flashing to the FT line extended to receive a pass. On the catch, our point guard 1 screens away for the 2. After screening for the 2 the 1 sits in the middle of the floor and the inbounder steps in for ball reversal. Again the concepts are the same as we look to attack sideline, middle, and a throw over.

On ball reversal back to the inbounder our press break slides are : middle flashes sideline and the sideline flashes middle. The 4 man sprints wide and looks to space the floor and be a deep threat.

If the ball is passed middle, the receiver immediately looks to pass it opposite for a potential (2 vs. 1) against the defense.
