This sidecourt inbounds play is used when inbounding in the front court .. it is especially useful in getting that last-second basket.
1) As the play begins, O2 cuts to the backcourt, and the low player, O3, breaks up toward the ball. It is hoped that O3’s defender will trail. When this happens, O3 loops around the wall and receives a lob pass from O1. To clear their defenders, O4 and O5 cut to the ball as soon as 3 loops around them.
2) If O3’s defender does not trail with, O1 throws the ball to O3 on the wing and goes over the wall, looking for the lob from O3.
