Shaka Smart Texas High Ball-Screen Plays

Shaka Smart Texas High Ball-Screen Plays by Wes Kosel

Here are a few high ball-screen plays used by Coach Shaka Smart in the game against Vanderbilt. Smart likes to get his quick, crafty guards into high ball-screen situations to spread the floor and put pressure on the defense. The guards look to create a shot off the dribble or pass to set shooters on the perimeter. Conner Lammert has had a good season so far living off of penetrate and kick opportunities as well as roll/replace 3-point shots.

Cross Roll/Replace

Coach Smart used this play against Vandy early in the game. 1 dribbles to the left as 3 sets a cross-screen for 5. 2 runs the baseline. 5 sprints up from the cross-screen to set a high ball-screen for 1. 5 rolls and 4 replaces 5.
