The Princeton Offence is a 4 Out-1 In motion offence. One of criticisms of the Princeton Offence is the lack of post up opportunities because the post player is usually at the elbow. However, one strength of the offence
The Point Phase of the Princeton Offence is recognized by a 1-guard front followed by an entry pass into the post player at the elbow, as shown in the diagram below.
In the Princeton Offence when a team moves from the Low Post Phase to the Point Phase, by passing the ball back out to the point, one of the options is to dribble at the wing if he/she is denied.
One of the advantages of the Princeton Offence is it allows the players to seamlessly flow from one phase to another without any stoppage in action while keeping constant pressure on the defence.
