This looks great, i'm a little concerned that with juniors player 5 might get caught on the 3 second key way rule?? How should I direct this player so that she doesn't get caught waiting in the key?

Michele

The 3 second count doesn't start until the ball is inbounded. Since the pass goes to the 5 player, it shouldn't be an issue. If the inbound pass goes to the corner (3), it should be a bang-bang play into the 5.

If the pass goes anywhere else, the 5 has to get out of the lane.

Michelle I''m a referee middle school,high school, and college. On this play don''t worry about the three second call because the is not in play yet. Once the ball touches a player any player on the throw in the clocks starts. If your team gains possession like it should on the inbounds play then three second call in effect. Also, If you did not kniow this the three second call starts after every shot. If you have any other questions feel free to email me.

Hey guys!You might be safe in the States with this one. however, in Europe FIBA rules clearly state that the 3 second call starts as soon as the inbounding player is handed the ball - ooops! Still a good play as long as the ball is inbounded sharp!

This play would not work on zone D.

It can work fin on a zone. Say the defense is playing a 2-3.

When the 3 flashes to the corner, the side defender in the bottom three has to defend her/him.

If 5 seals properly, he/she has taken out the middle fo the zone defenders.

Actually FIBA rules clearly state the ball has to be possessed in the front court and the clock has to be running. So this is a valid play to FIBA.
page 29 of the FIBA rules manual.

Ouch! In relation to the 3 second call on out of bounds, I`ll hold my hands up on that one -My page 29 reads the same as yours!Just call it a `senior moment` my worry is that I seem to get `senior weeks` these days!

It is not an impressive inbounds play.

I'm running a similar play. Mine is based on the last shot to win the game.

I am coaching a college basketball team. I am concerned that the 3 or 4 defender might easily cover the number 3 cutter in a 2-3 zone. I honestly think that 5 is the best shot since 3 will give defenders the diversion needed to get an easy shot beneath the hoop Also in the Philippines, we follow FIBA rules in amateur games so I am also concerned with 5 laying an egg at the paint (the way we fondly call a 3-sec violation in our country.lol)

For my team, I would choose a tall guy to make the inbound and 1 to be my sharp shooter from the arc in case things get hairy down low. Then again, this play is brilliant

Coach -

As for 5 - IF he doesn't receive the pass from the inbounder.... and the ball goes to 3 - 5 needs to post up outside the lane above the block. That way there wont be any eggs laid with that play. :-)

5 is starting outside the lane, so he should be able to set a screen on the defender stepping out since he has to play on the inside of 5 otherwise (it seems to me) that 5 could get an easy pass.
