Set Plays

China-Diagonal

This set was good for the Chinese Olympic team because it isolated Yao Ming in the middle of the lane with a passer in the middle of the floor surrounded by shooters.  With the passer out top, it can be very difficult to help to stop a high low pass to a big player because there is no help-side established.

 



Horns-Hit the Pop

"Horns"....

 



Brazil-Rub to Flex Action

This set begins with the posts near the elbows and the wings in the corners. 

 



High Post Cross

This is a play the Canadian Junior Men's National Team ran last summer that included a quick backdoor play and then a point to post cross screen.



4 Down Lob

This is fairly popular lob play that can be used against both man to man and zone defences. 



Slovenia-Stagger

This is another set play the Slovenia National Team ran in the Olympic Qualifying Tournament in 2008.
