2 Simple Baseline Out Of Bounds Plays
For All Occasions
The object of offense is to score every possession. Out-of-bounds plays present opportunities to score. Too many times, we use O-O-Bs as an opportunity to just get the ball inbounds. It is not after that you start a possession so close to the basket. It is a great advantage. Use it. Here are 2 simple out of bounds plays from under the basket that can be used against all kinds of defenses.
Line UnderThis is a great play to get the ball to your post player under the basket for some easy baskets.
5 man on the opposite block.
1 and 3, as potential shooters wide and deep in the corners.
2 is taking the ball out.
This set forces all of the offensive players to be defended with at least a 3/4 front to a full front. Any player not played in that manner, just throw him the ball and have him score.
On the catch, the 5 man ducks in to the basket as the 4 man immediately passes to 5 for a low post play.
FloppyThis is a simple play with multiple options. I used to put it in as multiple plays, but now I use it as one play and let the players determine which option to use.
2 (best shooter) takes it out.
1 & 3 (better ball handlers and shooters) on ball side.
4 & 5 (usually post players, good screeners) opposite the ball.
Here, the 1 man screens up for the 3.
3 man cuts to the corner.
2 passes to 3 to get it inbounds.
2 can inbound to the corner 1 or over the top to 3.
Players have to take advantage of defensive weaknesses and be aware of trap possibilities on the inbound pass.
3 looks to score. 4 can roll or pop.
If the inbounds pass goes to the corner, receiver can look for an immediate pass back to 2 to take advantage of misplays by the defense.
Make this pass to score.
4 drops to form a double screen (can also be a stagger) on the weak side.
Regardless of how you get the ball in, the object of the entry action is to get the ball to the top.
2 steps to the middle of the lane.
3 closes toward the lane.
Here, 2 has an option for a "Floppy Cut." He has 4&5 on the weak side in a double screen (or stagger) and 3 on the strong side for a single screen.
2 can go either way for a shot.
3 cuts off the back screen and then off the double screen (or stagger).
1 can pass to 3 for a shot or 2, who pops out after screening and is isolated for a shot or drive.
Allowing the players to read the situation and act accordingly, makes this play effective against any type of defense.
There are many other logical options you can create after the initial action. You can play with it and see what you can come up with.
