This is an offense that John Beilein has used over the years of his coaching career.

Coach Burns gave Jamie Angeli credit for sharing this set.

Start in 2 – 3 set. There are 3 different ways to get into this set.

 

 

Basketball Plays

 

Guard to Center Pass – #1 passes to #5
#1 and #2 then both cut hard to the basket.
If #5 can pass to either #1 or #2, he passes to them for a backdoor lay-up.
#3 and #4 come out to replace #1 and #2.
If the backdoor is not open, #5 passes to #3 or #4.

 

 

Basketball Plays

 

After #5 passes to #3.
#3 passes to #4.
#4 reverses to #2.
#3 then rubs off #5 on a hard cut to the basket.
#2 passes to #3 for the lay-up.

If #3 is not open:
After #4 reverses to #2, #4 v-cuts towards the basket and then pops back out.
#5 banana cuts to screen #4’s defender.
#2 passes to #4 after he pops back.
#4 shoots the 3-pointer or drives hard off #5’s screen for the lay-up.
