1 passes to 5 at the high post then loops around looking to get the ball back on a hand-off. If 1 gets the ball he looks to drive to the basket and score. If the hand-off isn’t there, 1 continues to the corner to screen for 3. 3 cuts to the basket looking for the pass from 5. If 3 isn’t open, 5 passes to 1 then follow the pass to set a ball-screen on the wing. 1 drives middle as 4 screens down for 3. 1 looks to score, pass to 5 on the roll, or pass to 3 for a shot.
Mike Maker Williams Ephs Set Plays – 2-1-2 Guard Thru
5 sets a ball-screen for 1 as 2 cuts through the lane to the opposite corner. 1 looks to attack the space vacated by 2. If that isn’t open, 1 passes to 3 then moves to the ball-side corner. 5 screens away for 4. 4 curls to the basket and 5 flashes to the top of the key for a shot. If 5 gets the ball without a shot, he looks to make the hi/lo pass to 4 or can pass out to 2 on the wing. Once 2 has the ball 5 sets a ball-screen and rolls to the basket on the pick & roll.
