Set Plays

Slovenia - Pin

A pin down action usually gives opportunities for a perimeter shot and a post up.  In this set run by the Slovenia National team the play begins with a high post rub. 

Handoff to Double Down

Staggered screens can be very effective, particularly if defenders do not tail the cutter.  In this SLOB, the Cuban defender attempts to go over top of the staggered screen and gives up an uncontested 3 pt. shot to the Spanish player. 

Pass Back to Double Back-Stagger

This is another pass back play the Argentina Junior Men's team ran at the World Junior Championships this summer. 

Pass Back to Lob

Most lob plays are high risk plays. However, because they can be spectacular, they can give teams momentum when they are well executed. This play was run by the Argentina Jr. Men's National team. 

Double Mid-Post

The Spanish Women's National Team ran this very simple set by entering the ball into the mid-post area. The mid-post is often a difficult area for zones to defend because it is often between two rows of a zone - whether it is a 1-2-2, 2-3 or a 1-3-1.

Korea High-Low

High-Low action can be very effective with a good low post presence and accurate shooters on the wings.  In the attached video clip Korea runs a simple high-low set vs. Chinese-Taipei.
