This is the SDSU intro into a 4 Out 1 In set. They generally like to start a lot of their offense with a dual screen look from their 4 and 5 at the top of the key with their wings in the corner. This play allows them to get some down screen motion going and convert into the 4 out 1 in look and ending up with a Post isolation on the low block for O5.


  • O5 starts above the foul line.
  • O2 and O3 start in the corners.
  • O4 starts in the paint and looks for the play side and moves to that block.

  • O5 picks a side to set a ball screen for O1 who has just brought the ball over half court.
  • O5 then continues forward to set a screen for the wing in the weak side corner who comes to the basketball.

  • Next O5 sets the down screen for O4 who curls up to the wing area. Ideally the ball has been swung from O1 to O2 to O4.
  • After setting the screen O5 should try to seal for a look at a low post feed.
