Horns Down Clear
This is a Regular Horns Set.
Trap by the Defense – The defense traps the 1 player and rotates up to take away the pass to the 4 player.
This type of trap can create problems for the offense if the trap is a good one.
This is the adjustment to the trapping scheme!!
The 2 player will clear to the opposite corner right before the play to take away the defensive rotator (X2).
The defense will trap the 1 player.
The 5 player will roll to the block to occupy X4 at the rim.
Since the 2 player cleared to the opposite corner, X2 cannot rotate up to guard the 4 player at the top of the key.
The clear action takes away the rotator (X2)!!
