This baseline out of bounds play can be run against zone defenses in order to get an open jump shot or layup. The flashes and misdirections create open scoring opportunities.
O5 = post and inbounder
O4 = post on ballside low block
O3 = swing
O2 = free throw shooter
O1 = baseline shooter
When the official hands the basketball to #5, #4 and #3 take two steps into the lane, jumping up and down calling for the ball. #1 heads to short corner. #2 counts three seconds to self and then steps sideways to the elbow.
Option 1 – #2 open from elbow
Option 2a – #2 is covered, go to #1
Option 2b – Pass goes to #1 but covered, #1 passes to #2 at elbow
Options 3 – #4 goes to weakside block, #5 steps in and posts up. (After inbounded to 1 or 2)
