This set is a part of Coach Princeton Basketball: Keys to Unlocking the Backdoor Offense, but could be run as a quick hitter to complement whatever you run.
Double Screen and Flare
This play will isolate the post player on a duck i
It is difficult to defend because of the movement.
The play begins with a wing pass from the guard and cut.
3 stays a bit more flat on the dribble and looks for 2 cutting backdoor.
2 fills the strong side corner as always. 3 passes to 4
On the pass to 4, 3 screens down for 5.
5 comes off the screen for the pass from 4.
1 walks up to the FT line extended on the weak side.
5 executes a dribble hand off with the 2.
At the same time the 3 is shaping up to set a ball screen for 2 right after the dribble hand off.
A great counter for midline teams or sagging defensive teams, the 4 will be open off the flare screen set by 1.
1 also flashes to the ball after the screen.
5 will follow the ball for the flare screen on the pass from 2 to 4 if no shot is available.
Same options as CHIN. Dribble up to reset the offense
