good play, maybe as another option after 5 and 2 screen 3, 5 can duck in for a post up straight from 1 as 5's defender may help off on cut.

I've been coaching high school boys varsity for 5 years this is a excellent play if the other team is playing man to man defense.

Very Good play.I didnt have to see the staggered double for #2 I could tell it was coming.

Nice look for 2 to take a J at the elbow. The defense has a tendency to over adjust to the baseline cutter.

I have 5 step in the lane for a simple lay-up. My player took the initiative to suggest it. It also gets you set up in the 1-3-1 if there is nothing doing off the screens.

We recently used this play with 7 seconds to go down 3pts at the college level. We had our leading scorer inbound the ball and act as the decoy. The defenders cheated to his side and #2 nailed the 3pt shot off the down screen to put us into OT and the win. Excellent mis-direction play.

good play but it is a little complicated for youth players, don't you think? I play for a high school in Memphis,Tn (white station high)
and osme of the guys can't really run this play effectively. I was just saying.

Could you just run this play as a regular play and not inbound??

No matter which player is you best player/scorer, they will eventually be open because by the end of the play, everyone has became an option at some point or the other. The 1 or the 4 after the 4 backscreens, the 3 off the double, the 2 off the screens from 4 and 5, and if they hit the 3 in the corner off the double, the 5 could post ball side after screening the 3....I love it!
