Set Plays


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



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. 


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