if defender 2 does decide to cover the corner and defender 4 thus stays in the key. Then offender 1 must be guarded by defender 5, otherwise offender 1 will have an open shot around the arc. Thus providing more space for offender 4 to post up around the midPost. As a result it should be possible for offender 3 to feed him the ball. If that happens, defender 4 must choose for offender 4 on the midpost or stay center to cover offender 2. The key is to get the ball at midpost, it will create a 2 on 1 for defender 4.
What do you guys think? Perhaps I overlooked something..
it wont hurt, if offensive player 4 or 5 is a decent close range shooter.. that way,if defender 2 does go to the corner, offender 5 shall not go to the hoop but to screen defender 2 if he''s blocked off by defender 4, offender 4 sets up the screen,pick and roll, leaving him open for a quick lay up or drop to player 5, in case defensive player 1 drops down, under the hoop.then offensive player 5 now takes a quick shot.. either ways, there is now some one to collect the rebound, if the need arises..
is it not the variation of 1-3-1 is 1-1-3 just incase offence try to breake the set deffence. like deffender 1 should stay along tha arc of the 3 point line. defender 2 slide to the corner to defend offender 3 who should be receiving the ball and deffender 5 slide on the opposite corner to help.and deffender 3 stays on the 15 footline and that case no offence player is free for a shot.if ever offender 4 post up in the mid post deffender 4 is just near besides to guard him. I think offence will wave the ball then reset again a new plan.
guys what do you think am just amateur for this...try to figure out what am trying to say
If D2 covers O1's corner pass to O3, O1 immediately sets up at the arc looking for a return pass for a jump shot. This will force D5 to slide out to pick him up. While O3 is giving a quick pass fake to O1, O4 posts up on D4 and receives O3's pass. O2 simultaneously screens D3 so O5 can cut OUTSIDE the lane and receive a drop pass from O4 for a lefthanded layup. This takes D1 completely out of the play (the worry is D1 might be quick enough (and savvy enough) on the rotation to break up a pass to O5 cutting the lane. O1 backs out to cover the break.
I haven''t run the play with my group yet, but I''m not sure about the positioning of the defence in the diagram. I''ve always taught the defender in the middle of the zone to be in a straight line between the ball and the basket, so I couldn''t see him getting caught that high when the ball goes to the corner.
At the start Def5 should be covering Off5 in the highpost and Def3 should be in the middle of the lane since there is no one else for him to cover on the weakside of the court. Def5 is taught to get to the ballside block once the ball is below the freethrow line but conceiveably could get screened. Def3 at least would be in a position to deny a layup.
