Coach Vonn Read has submitted several plays from his playbook series The Basketball Encyclopedia of Plays to the Coaching Toolbox.
Vonn is the associate head coach for the Syracuse women.
He has also served as an assistant coach in the WNBA with the Phoenix Mercury, Orlando Miracle, and San Antonio Silver Stars.
He was an advanced scout for the Orlando Magic as well as The Charlotte Sting.
A couple of ideas for short seconds inbounds plays (one under and one side) to think about using or adapting this year or filing for next year.
Diagonal Seal 5
This is a good EOG Set for a Layup.
This set capitalizes against a team that switches everything at the End of Games.
The 4 player will pop out to half court and the 2 player will cut to the corner to space the floor.
The 5 player set a diagonal screen for the 1 player, anticipating the switch.
The 5 player will screen and seal X1 on the switch for a lob pass layup.
X5 will be too short to defend the 5 player on the switch.
Also, you have a big on small mismatch on the perimeter.
Stack Rip Lob 51
This is a good Short Clock or End of Game Play.
The 4 Player will dive to the block and cut to the corner.
The 2 player will space to the opposite Corner.
The 5 player will dive down the lane line right behind the 4 player.
The 5 player will ask for the ball coming down the lane to set up their defender.
The 1 player will come down the lane right behind the 5 player.
The 1 player will set the back screen lob for the 5 player.
Have the 1 player set the screen so they cannot easily switch the backscreen. X1 should be too short to stop the lob.
