Set Plays

Carolina Backdoor

This backdoor play was used by North Carolina and is effective because it has a lot of movement.

UCLA Duck-In Plays

Possibly the easiest and most effective way to get the ball inside is with a duck-in.


There is a lot of action in this side play which creates scoring opportunities in the low post and off a flare screen. 

Double Pin

This is a zone set that is effective against most zone defences. 


The 2008 German Olympic Team rans this early offensive action. In transition, O1 enters the ball to O2, high at the wing, and cuts towards the weak side of the floor. 


Ball screens can be very effective when the ball screener's defender is late to help on the ball screen.
