Dana Altman Oregon NCAA Tournament Sets – Easy Down
1 passes to 4 on the wing then makes a shallow cut to the short corner. Once 4 has the ball, 2 sets a down-screen for 5. 5 cuts to the top of the key for a shot. This is a great play if your 5 can stretch the defense.
Dana Altman Oregon NCAA Tournament Sets – Flex Stagger
1 passes to 4 as 5 sets a flex-screen for 2. 2 cuts across the lane looking for the pass. If it isn’t there, 1 sets a down-screen for 5 (regular flex). If 5 gets the ball without a good look at a shot, 4 and 2 move toward the right corner to set a staggered down-screen for 3. 3 cuts up off of the screen looking for a shot. 5 can also use the open space to take the ball to the basket.
