I found this on one of Creighton Burns’ newsletters.
It is a simple play that Butler University ran against a zone when Brad Stevens was there.
This is a quick hitter that you can save for a time when you need a basket.
It is probably not going to work more than once or twice each game.
The play starts with1 passing to 2.
That forces X1 to guard the wing.
#1 makes a shallow cut through the lane.
#2 dribbles to the top of the key to take #1 away from his area.
#2 passes back to #1
That forces x4 to step up to guard #1.
#4 steps to the short corner.
#5 cuts to the high post.
#1 has option to drive or pass to the short corner.
If the ball goes to #4 in the short corner, #5 makes a basket cut.
I would like to receive Coach Burns’ Newsletter. Thank you.
