"Sneaky" - Simple End of Game Play
By - Joe Haefner
Against Man and Zone Defenses
Here is a very simple, yet effective end of game play that can be used to score 2 points against zone or man to man defenses.
I also love this play because it helps me reminisce about the good ole days during our sophomore basketball season when our towering 5'9 center by the name of Nick Lafler AKA "Sneaky" converted this play to win a game against Vinton-Shellsburg as time expired. In case you were wondering, Nick was tagged with the name Sneaky from an early age because he used to wait for the ball handler to turn his back to him and he would SNEAK behind them and steal the ball.
3 should be your best athlete to jump and get the ball.
1 and 2 cut to the corner aggressively calling for the ball. 5 screens the person that should guard 3. If it is a 2-3 zone, he screens the center. If it's man, he screens 3's man.
4 throws a lob pass. 3 jumps to receive the alley oop pass and shoots while in mid air.
