Start the action out of a 4 Out 1 In Secondary Break.
The 1 player will push the ball and reverse it to the 4 player who will swing it to the 3 player.
The 1 player will cut through to the corner.
The 4 player will make a fake basket cut and loop back to the top of the key.
The 5 player will sprint right off the cutting 4 player to the wing to set the ball screen, trying to get separation from his defender.
The 3 player will take 1 dribble off the ball screen and pass the ball to the 4 player looping back to the top.
This action is designed to attack a Hard Hedge by X5.
The 5 player will roll hard to the rim for the high low layup.
X5 will not be able to recover after the hard hedge.
If X1 helps in, the 4 player will kick to the 1 player for the open 3-pointer.
You could also run a slip action by not using the dribble relay pass to the 4 player.
Just hit the 5 player on the slip to the rim
