  • O1 looks to make an entry pass into the high post in this case O5. The post should turn and square to the basket.
  • The wing on the strong side O2 looks to make a backdoor cut on their defender. If not open they should continue through and fill to the weak side.
  • O1 follows their pass to the wing looking to fill the open space created by the cutter for a possible open shot.
  • The weak side wing O3 fills to the top of the key for a kick out if needed.
