- O1 brings the ball over half court.

- The post player on the ball side elbow (O4) will start to make a cut across the key while the weak side elbow (O5) will cut over the top of O4 and curl down to the strong side block.
- After O5 passes by, O4 will take a strong V-Cut towards the rim and then fade out to the top of the key.
- O3 is given either the option to feed the post or hit the cutter to the top of the key if open for a shot.
