Here are 7 baseline out-of-bounds options out of a 1-4 low formation from Coach Bill Self. In the 1-4 low, Coach Self likes to put his long post man at the 5 spot to catch the inbounds pass. Usually the point guard passes the ball in. The 4 man is in the ball-side corner and the 3 man is in the opposite corner. Players like Jeff Withey and Joel Embiid were very effective at the five spot as they were able to hold the defender off and catch the lob pass with a long reach.

In this option, 5 catches the ball at the elbow as 2 makes the back cut. If 2 isn’t open, 1 loops around 5 as 5 gives the ball to 1 on a dribble hand-off. 1 looks for a shot or can pass to 3 in the corner or to 2 cutting off of a double screen from 4 and 5.
