Scissors Hand-Off Lob Play
Thanks to Andy Fitzgerald for sending in this lob play. The play starts in a 2-3 high set with all of the offensive players above the free-throw line. 1 starts the play by dribbling to the right wing and giving the ball to 4 on a dribble hand-off. 1 then clears to the left corner. 4 passes to 3 who passes to 2 on the left wing. Once 3 has passed the ball, 5 steps in to set a back-screen. 2 looks to make the lob pass to 3 at the basket.
