A couple of plays from the Arizona Men’s Basketball Coaching Newsletter.
One of the actions is a way to deal with teams that double team your low post player.
The second action is a way to attack perimeter switches that are mismatches that you can take advantage of.
Even if these sets don’t work for your personnel, I hope it gives you some inspiration as to how you can take advantage of these situations when they occur against you.
